Having seen humankind at its worst, now, in a lush royal kingdom, Sandilands will see it at its most dangerously complex....
In northern India, Ranipur is renowned for its trove of priceless gems, its exquisite palace, and its medieval mores in matters involving men and women.

Now, as a gilded, remote bastion teeters on the brink of chaos and a man-eating tiger prowls the nearby countryside, Joe must turn hunter-of a human, an animal, and the hunger that drives them both....
