It begins in a near future New York City, with a low-level data analyst's investigation into the disappearance of L.Murugan a driven eccentric who vanished from the steamy, overcrowded streets of 1995 Calcutta. From here, the story leaps backward and forward across one hundred years from a teeming contemporary city of clashing cultures and hidden faces back to the laboratory of Ronald Ross, the British scientist who was led by weird, fortuitous coincidences to the groundbreaking discovery of how malaria is transmitted to humans.
