King -- of the Khyber Rifles may well be Mundy's most famous work. Set in India and the regions beyond, it was successful enough so that two movies were adapted from its pages, although neither portrayed Athelstan King as Mundy intended him. And neither evoked the fantasy and mysticism that are so much a part of this : Talbot Mundy.   Τον 19ο αιωνα ενας βρετανος αξιωματικος στην Ινδια μάχεται εναντια στις προκαταλήψεις δυο συναδελφων του.

Athelstan King is a British Secret Agent stationed in India at the beginning of WWI. He is attached to the Khyber Rifles regiment as a cover, but his real job is to prevent a holy war. "To stop a holy war single-handed would be rather like stopping the wind--possibly easy enough, if one knew the way." King is ordered to work with a mysterious and powerful Eastern woman, Yasmini. King of the Khyber Rifles is a novel by British writer Talbot Mundy. Captain Athelstan King is a secret agent for the British Raj at the beginning of the First World War. Heavily influenced both by Mundy's own unsuccessful career in India and by his interest in theosophy, it describes his adventures among the tribes of the north with the Book Edition: 1st Edition.
