Publisher's Summary

A BBC Radio 4 murder mystery set in India in 1709. ‘Early Belt and the Present’ was originally broadcast as the ‘Afternoon Play’ on 6 April 2011.
A young servant, Early Belt, accompanies a group of superstitious English merchants as they transport a vast wagon train of goods to Delhi. The wagon train - known as The Present - is an incentive for the Indian Emperor to grant free trade throughout the land.
As the convoy crawls across India, a merchant is found murdered. Stories quickly spread of a sorceress locked inside an enchanted cabinet somewhere within the convoy. When a second merchant is killed, the rumours turn to hysteria. It falls to Early Belt to solve the mystery....
