Description

The fabulously wealthy kingdom of Sambalpore: home to tigers, elephants, diamond mines and the beautiful Palace of the Sun. When the heir to the throne of Sambalpore is assassinated in Calcutta in the presence of Captain Sam Wyndham and his colleague 'Surrender-Not' Banerjee, Wyndham works to uncover the reasons behind Prince Punit's death, despite the opposition of his commanding officers. Travelling to Sambalpore, he discovers a kingdom riven with suppressed conflict. Prince Punit was a moderniser whose attitudes - and romantic relationship - may have upset the more religious elements of his country while his brother appears to be a feckless playboy. And when Annie Grant, the first woman to capture Wyndham's heart since the death of his wife, arrives in the kingdom, Wyndham knows this is going to be a case that is as challenging personally as it is professionally.

Another great story

Abir spins a great yarn. It is exotic and fascinating all at once. It is also captivating and well read. There are a few stylistic ticks that it would be churlish to harp on For the author: Annie and Surrender Not are great characters that are under-utilised . I hope the next book gives Annie especially more space. Other than that this is my favourite series at the moment I’m dying to read the next adventure.

Leaves you craving for more !

Abir Mukherjee and Simon Bubb continue the magic in their second novel of the series - this novel deals with a little bit more sophisticated plot with multiple characters coming in the fray of the classic whodunnit. The novel also portrays some of the beautiful cultural symbols of India which are still existent today (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ratha_Yatra_(Puri)). Narration is again really enjoyable. Before you read this, make sure you read the first novel since some characters are continued from the first novel.

Fascinating Insight...

... into early 20th century India. Well read and the characters soon become omorganisering to one. The plot is pretty good, the protagonist was guessable but that didn't spoil my enjoyment.
