A young girl comes to live in the slums of New Delhi. It is a place of danger where street gangs rule. Through the initiative of a blind beggar, she is taken to work in the home of a rich businessman and his dysfunctional son. There, she observes a world of education and privilege—a world that is out of her reach.
But danger still stalks her.
A kidnap attempt forces her to flee to her childhood home in the tropical backwaters of Kerala, a land of wooden boats, fishing and elephants. But she cannot hide forever. She must band together with her old friends from Delhi, a medical student and a nun, to unravel the significance of the pendant given to her by the blind beggar—the peacock stone. Why does the stone bring death, and how is it linked to one of the biggest jewel thefts in history?
