Product description

Review

A crime novel that is, quite simply, enormous fun. Wyndham's next assignment can't come soon enough.

A marvelous new historical crime series.

A vibrant and powerful debut.

An enthralling debut.--Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

The novel is filled with fascinating historical detail, intriguing crime, and a minefield of political pitfalls the characters must navigate. Both Sam Wyndham and Surrender-not Banerjee are two creatively developed characters who are more than capable of carrying readers through Calcutta for many books to come.

[A] splendid debut...and his hero, Captain Sam Wyndham, is a winning creation.

A lip-smacking and highly entertaining mystery, set in a Calcutta so convincingly evoked that readers will find sweat bursting from their foreheads.

British author Mukherjee's outstanding debut and series launch combines a cleverly constructed whodunit with an unusual locale--Calcutta in 1919--portrayed with convincing detail. The nuanced relationship between Wyndham and his Indian assistant adds even more depth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great summer read. Easy to read and unpretentious. Most will enjoy this if any vague love of Indian history exists with them.
