Bombay in 1900 - abducted as a baby then abandoned in an orphanage, Leo Kazan grows into a gifted linguistic and an accomplished thief: skills that lead him into international espionage, revolutionary politics, and diamond smuggling. During a visit to London in 1918, Ludo has a brief, memorable affair with an innocent young Englishwoman, Davina Dymond, before leaving for Russia. Separated, their lives take different turns and Leo starts to uncover the truth of his origins. Davina is married off and exiled to Spain. But as the drums of war reverberate around the world for a second time, Leo and Davina are fated to meet again. "An epic and enthralling novel of love and separation, betrayal and treachery . . ."
