    Conflicted main character
    Ranjit is a Sikh from India who moved to America with his wife and daughter to escape his past. Unfortunately, his life in America is not what he hoped for and certainly not what his wife wanted or is willing to accept.
    There is a bit of intrigue and a number of betrayals.
    I found the character of Ranjit as a military man in India and also a religious man to have an internal conflict with what is right and with where his loyalty lies. Interesting story that was fast reading and enjoyable.
