Elizabeth finds herself very attracted to Nigel. He reciprocates, but knows that any relationship between them is dangerous for both of them. Nigel is also concerned how the British authorities have ignored the serial killing of natives until one of their own is murdered. Struggling to resolve his love for Elizabeth with her safety while trying to solve a series of homicides yet remain a good soldier, Nigel is pulled in numerous ways that leave unsure what to do.

BLOOD MOON OVER BENGAL is more a historical tale than a romance although there is an exciting star-crossed lovers' sub-plot. The story line enables the audience to look deeply into Bengal society in 1932 in which the native caste system has a British top loaded onto the hierarchal pyramid. The mystery is intriguing more in terms of the light it shines on the era.
