The year is 1914. Athelstan King is assigned the nearly impossible task of heading into the area of India's Khinhan Caves near the Khyber Pass where rumors of a jihad consisting of thousands of men has the entire area tense. It is strongly suspected that the uprising is agitated by the Turks who want to strike at Britain. He has been ordered to work closely with the beautiful Yasmini, a woman whose word is the law in her own nearby region but someone who definitely has an agenda of her own.
