'An exceptional historical crime novel' C.J. Sansom



India, 1919. Desperate for a fresh start, Captain Sam Wyndham arrives to take up an important post in Calcutta's police force.



He is soon called to the scene of a horrifying murder. The victim was a senior official, and a note in his mouth warns the British to leave India - or else.



With the stability of the Empire under threat, Wyndham and Sergeant 'Surrender-not' Banerjee must solve the case quickly. But there are some who will do anything to stop them...



'A thought-provoking rollercoaster' Ian Rankin



'Highly entertaining...set in a Calcutta so convincingly evoked that readers will find sweat bursting from their foreheads' Daily Telegraph
