Sea of Poppies is a stunningly vibrant and intensely human work that confirms Amitav Ghosh's reputation as a master storyteller. At the heart of this epic saga is a vast ship, the Ibis. Its destiny is a tumultuous voyage across the Indian Ocean to the Mauritius Islands. As to the people on board, they are a motley array of sailors and stowaways, coolies and convicts. In a time of colonial upheaval in the mid-nineteenth century, fate has thrown together a truly diverse cast of Indians and Westerners, from a bankrupt Raja to a widowed village-woman, from a mulatto American freedman to a free-spirited European orphan. As they sail down the Hooghly and into the sea, their old family ties are washed away, and they view themselves as jahaj-bhais, or ship-brothers, who will build whole new lives for themselves in the remote islands where they are being taken. It is the beginning of an unlikely dynasty.

David Huntzinger, M.D. (Medical Doctor or Master Detective) By: Robert M. Thompson David “Butch” Huntzinger is discharged from a CIA spy mission and returns to Kearney, Nebraska, to complete his college education and then enroll in medical school. He reconnects with a high school buddy, Zeke. Over Labor Day weekend in Honolulu, they discover a body on the beach. Federal agents believe that the dead man is part of a huge illegal antiquities operation centered in the Middle East. Federal agents in conjunction with members of the United Nations Security Council prevail on Butch to return to the Middle East in an effort to stop the illegal trade in antiquities with a promise to pay five million dollars if he succeeds. After much soul-searching and advice from Zeke, Butch accepts the challenge. He is successful, but the government is reluctant to pay him. A breakdown in CIA communications and a disastrous Taliban attack on several military posts in Afghanistan, prompt the CIA to ask Butch’s assistance in finding out what went wrong, with the promise of payment of an additional one million dollars plus the five million. Reluctantly, Butch and his ex-spy partner, Stan, successfully pinpoint the cause of the breakdown. Butch completes his medical training in forensics and becomes involved with deaths of two members of a prominent Kearney pioneer family. They appear to have been poisoned by aconite and Butch is on the trail of the murderer.
