1916. During the British Raj, the Khyber Pass, a perilous mountain bottleneck that separates India from Central Asia, was a wild place, a refuge of outlaws and a center of banditry. This is the tale of an adventurer, Athelstan King, Anglo-Indian captain of the Khyber Rifles. King, a hero with the face of a Roman conqueror, is sent to the Khyber Pass to quell a jihad. He is aided by the beautiful, exotic, and powerful Yasmini in the battle to keep the pass open against the insurgence of a mad mullah and his forces.
