Chapter 14: Knowledge of the Redeemer
It turns out that Colonel Mebratu, the guy Ghosh operated on, was in town to plot a coup against the emperor.

Ghosh is surprised to feel sympathy for Mebratu's cause.
Eli Harris, the rich Baptist from Texas, comes to visit Matron unexpectedly, and she explains that she's in quite a mess with one nurse dead, one surgeon missing, and another doctor taking maternity leave.
