Abstract:

Jason Talley is a mortgage loan processor living a predictable, uneventful life in Corning, NY. His neighbour, Sriram Sundaram asks Jason to hold and watch over a gift, a red sari, that Sriram plans to deliver to his mother in India. Jason agrees and the next day both Sriram and his wife Vidya are found dead in their apartment in an apparent murder/suicide. Jason reasons that he owes it to his deceased friend to deliver the sari in person and impulsively books a trip to India. When he arrives in India, he finds himself part of a senior citizens tour group and the only other young person in the bunch is an adventurous Canadian girl named Rachel Moore. The pair break from the group and strike out on their own, and at Rachel's suggestion, travel by rail in their quest to find Srirams mother, and deliver the gift. Along the way Jason becomes acquainted with Sriram's former business partners, who have very mixed opinions of Sriram, ranging from a young man with a vision to that of a malicious conspirator, who ruined the lives of his ex-associates. Jason finds that being identified as Sriram's friend makes him a target for revenge from those who perceived Sriram as their enemy. Now the focus of his mission changes from the fulfillment of a deceased friend's wish to one of survival and eluding unknown assassins.
