Product Description:

India, 1920. Captain Wyndham and Sergeant Banerjee of the Calcutta Police Force investigate the dramatic assassination of a Maharajah's son.

The fabulously wealthy kingdom of Sambalpore is home to tigers, elephants, diamond mines and the beautiful Palace of the Sun. But when the heir to the throne is assassinated in the presence of Captain Sam Wyndham and Sergeant 'Surrender-Not' Banerjee, they discover a kingdom riven with suppressed conflict. Prince Adhir was a moderniser whose attitudes - and romantic relationship - may have upset the more religious elements of his country, while his brother now in line to the throne appears to be a feckless playboy.

As Wyndham and Banerjee desperately try to unravel the mystery behind the assassination, they become entangled in a dangerous world where those in power live by their own rules and those who cross their paths pay with their lives. They must find a murderer, before the murderer finds them

Praise for A Rising Man:

A Rising Man is an exceptionally good, and original, historical crime novel C.J. Sansom

This vivid murder mystery moves at breakneck speeds Sunday Times

A Rising Man is a whodunit set in the social and political tinderbox of 1919 Calcutta - a thought-provoking rollercoaster Ian Rankin, Observer

One of the most exciting debut novels I've read in years Val McDermid

Review:

"Even better than his first... What is most striking about Mukherjee’s novels is his infectious enjoyment of the human oddity of the British in India... Even better is his portrayal of the mix of opulence and spirituality that characterises Sambalpore under its sybaritic but benevolent maharaja... I can’t imagine anyone failing to enjoy it" (Jake Kerridge Daily Telegraph)

"A year ago I welcomed the arrival of Captain Sam Wyndham and his faithful Sergeant... and I am delight to report that his return is every bit as engaging" (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail)

"A richly detailed period gem boasting the British Raj’s exotic setting and a gripping "whydunit" spun around an intriguing cast" (Christine Tran Booklist)

"An intriguing and enjoyable crime novel" (Sarah Shaffi Stylist)

"He writes beautifully, bringing the colourful kingdom of Sambalpore to vivid life and taking the reader on a highly entertaining journey to unearth the dark secrets as its core, with unexpected twists on the way to a satisfying finale" (Jon Coates Daily Express)
