This review is from: Nightrunners of Bengal (Story-Tellers) (Kindle Edition)
This is one of a series of books by John Masters, who was in the Indian Army. They run from the time of the East India Company till the modern day. 'The Nightrunners of Bengal' is the one about the mutiny. I was surprised that one critic said the book was difficult to get into.... The plot is there from the first pages and the characters are well drawn. Another critic said it was the mutiny from the British point of view but it does give the reasons for the mutiny; these should have been obvious then but it's not surprising that they weren't. People are of their time and can't be compared with our attitudes today.
This is the best of the series and the next best is 'The Deceivers' about the worship of Kali. Can we please have this too in a Kindle edition, Amazon.
