Shafeen’s father, Prince Aadhish, has had a heart attack and is close to death. Desperately worried, Shafeen and Greer race from S.T.A.G.S. to Rajasthan. But Prince Aadhish is in a coma and unresponsive and they begin to realise that the Prince received a terrible shock, triggered by a decades-old guilty secret. But as Shafeen and Greer attempt to unlock the secret, they come to believe the answer lies with the de Warlencourt ancestor, Colonel Montgomery, founder of the T.I.G.E.R. shooting club, which horrifyingly pursued low caste Indians instead of tigers. It appears that ‘Monty’ brought the Order of the Stag to India, and the hunts may still be going on.
