The Jewel in the crown (The Raj Quartet)
on 25 April 2014
I originally read this and the remaining three books in the 1980's. Having now re-read the first I still think this series is probably the best thing I've ever read. I have no hesitation in recommending the series to anyone who loves good literature, excellent writing and first class story telling. In addition numerous memorable characters and unforgettable sub plots. I have the hard back copy, the four paperbacks and now The Jewel in the Crown on my KIndle ! Three more to follow.
