Publisher's Summary

After exploiting India's divisions for years, the British depart in such haste that no one is prepared for the Hindu-Muslim riots of 1947.

Against the backdrop of the violent partition of India and Pakistan, this volume sketches one last bittersweet romance, revealing the divided loyalties of the British as they flee, retreat from, or cling to India.

Listen to all four titles in the Raj Quartet.

A long story

Sometimes a long story it's just what's needed. I was sorry with the story ended. I miss it now. One unsolved mystery remains: how on earth did the English ever smoke and drink so much?
