Description
Information
An Imperial Story of Conspiracy, Love and A Guru's Prophecy.

In June 1997, the Swiss Bankers' Association published a list of over 1700 "dormant accounts", untouched for over fifty ears. Among the names - supposedly those of Jewish victims of the Holocaust - was an Indian princess, "last heard of in 1942 living in Penn, Bucks". Intrigued, Christy Campbell began a search which took him to India, France and Russia and was to uncover a remarkable tale of conspiracy, deceit and imperial realpolitik.

The story of how the ten-year-old Maharajah Duleep Singh was deprived of the punjab by the British in 1849, lost the world-famous Koh-i-Noor diamond to Queen Victoria, was brought to London and became a Christianised country gentleman, then plotted to recover his kingdom while being spied on by the British foreign secret service, is a marvellously enthralling real-life historical thriller.
