This books goes back and forth between the lives of many different characters in India at the time of the Opium War. Their lives finally intermingle on the ship, the Ibis. The writing is detailed and highly descriptive. The end doesn't nearly finish off the story, though. This is part of a trilogy, the second part being River Of Smoke, and the third part not being out yet. One of the only things that I didn't like were some prurient digressions.
