9780099478829: The Day Of The Scorpion (Raj Quartet 2)

BOOK TWO OF THE RAJ QUARTET

India, August 9th 1942. The morning brings raids and the arrest by British police of Congress Party members. Amongst the prisoners is the distinguished ex-Chief Minister Mohammed Ali Kasim. Loyal to the party's central vision of a unified free India, his incarceration is a symptom of the growing deterioration of Anglo-Indian relations.

For the long-serving British family, the Laytons, the political and social ramifications are immediate, disturbing and tragic. Some, like Ronald Merrick, believe that true intimacy between the races is impossible; others, such as Sarah Layton, struggle to come to terms with their Anglo-Indian past. With growing confusion and bewilderment, the British are forced to confront the violent and often brutal years that lie ahead of them.

Review:

"An achievement of unusual dimensions and power" ( Observer)

"I can't think of anything worth knowing about the Raj in India that Scott hasn't told me... His contribution to literature is permanent" ( New York Times)

"Beautifully constructed... An even richer tapestry of Indian and British character than its predecessor" ( Sunday Times)

From the Publisher:

The second title in Paul Scott's masterpiece, The Raj Quartet - dramatised for Radio 4
