The Last Victory is a continuation
of The Imperial Agent.
It is October
1910 and the lovers Kim and Parvati are fleeing across India,
escaping forces beyond their control. They know great changes
are afoot - the Mahatma's ideas are gaining ground and the Indian
National Congress is about to change remarkably with the entrance
of Jawaharlal Nehru. Ahead lie turbulent times that will reveal
the ruthlessness of the Empire
and give rise to the promise of independence.
Kim and Parvati's lives criss-cross those of many known and unknown
Indians who believe in the Indian nation, and they too are swept
into the very centre of the struggle for independence, where they
must confront their terrifying tormentors.
Taking off from The Imperial Agent Timeri N. Murari masterfully
recreated Kipling's free-spirited and idealistic hero, Kimball
O'Hara. The Last Victory is a thrilling account of Kim's life
- from the uncertainty of youth to an illuminating maturity mirrored
only by the brilliance of a new India.
