When Ravi Kumar Mehra MA steps off the train at Victoria station, London in the autumn of 1962, he is fully equipped with the all-important work permit and a couple of pounds in his pocket. A brave new life lies ahead!  He’s 23, educated, good-looking – a real Star of India. What can possibly stand in his way?

Disillusion sets in. The Mother Country is a hostile place in which non-whites are not welcome. But the kindness of strangers helps Ravi to walk tall – and after six days of sleeping rough, his luck changes, for the Indian Magic curry house is recruiting for a dishwasher . . .

When Ravi falls in love – deeply and forever – life takes a more dangerous turn. For the girl in question is the English Rose next door, and her father is unhinged. Anything could happen – and it does.
