To marry her, Kirkpatrick converted to Islam and even became a double agent working against the East India Company. Shedding light on the many eccentric Westerners during this period who turned Turk, adopting Indian customs, dress, and religions, Darymple brings to life a compelling and largely unwritten story of Britains rule over India.
