Duncan and Richie attend the opening of an exhibit featuring the Bengal Kali, a bronze statue sacred to the now-extinct Indian assassin cult of Thuggees. Immortal Kamir, last of the Thuggees, is determined to reclaim the Kali for India, and he wants Duncan's help. In flashback to 1764 British-Occupied India, Duncan is trying to track down the Thuggees and prevents young widow Vashti from committing suttee on her dead husband's pyre. In present day, Duncan discovers Kamir has killed a mortal to reclaim the Kali, but Kamir insists Duncan not judge him, for he is a priest of Kali. Written by
