The Opium Clerk

Kunal Basu (Author)
Synopsis Brought to Calcutta by his widowed mother in 1857, Hiran turns out to have few talents, apart from an uncanny ability to read a man’s lines in his palm. When luck gets him a job in the auction house, he finds himself embroiled in the affairs of his nefarious superior and commissioned to procure a child for the wife of his superior from the slums of Calcutta. Hiran, the simple opium clerk, then stumbles on his own future. He of all men, who can read the lines of fate in a hand, should have been able to foretell how the discovery of the child would change his life forever.
