Review

"[A] splendid debut...and his hero, Captain Sam Wyndham, is a winning creation" The Times, Crime Book of the Month

"[A] terrific first novel...Mukherjee's descriptions of Calcutta under the Raj are vivid, while Wyndham's position as a newcomer with fresh eyes works brilliantly" Sunday Times, Crime Book of the Month

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

"Colourful, eloquent, witty, unputdownable. And here's the best bit: this is the first in an unmissable new series that is clearly destined to join the pantheon of intelligent historical crime fiction. Jump on the wagon now" -- Neel Mukherjee, author of Booker shortlisted The Lives of Others

"A thoroughly engaging new detective... A Rising Man kept me awake, racing to the finish... This is a Calcutta of smart cantonments and deep corruption, vividly brought to life, the politics and the people skewered with sharp dialogue and a brilliant sense of period" -- Jason Goodwin

Book Description

India, 1919. Captain Sam Wyndham is confronted with a highly charged case: a senior official has been murdered, and a note in his mouth warns the British to leave India – or else...
