Publisher's Summary

Captain Sam Wyndham and his sidekick Surrender-Not Banerjee return in this prize-winning historical crime series set in 1920s Calcutta. 

India, 1921. Haunted by his memories of World War I, Captain Sam Wyndham is battling a serious addiction to opium that he must keep secret from his superiors in the Calcutta police force. 

When Sam is summoned to investigate a grisly murder, he is stunned at the sight of the body: he’s seen this before. Last night, in a drug-addled haze, he stumbled across a corpse with the same ritualistic injuries. It seems like there’s a deranged killer on the loose. Unfortunately for Sam, the corpse was in an opium den - and revealing his presence there could cost him his career. 

With the aid of his quick-witted Indian Sergeant, Surrender-Not Banerjee, Sam must try to solve the two murders, all the while keeping his personal demons secret, before somebody else turns up dead.

Excellent!

I have thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books! This one kept me guessing until the very end. The author does an excellent job describing what life was like in India in this time period and has developed wonderful characters to follow. The narrator is excellent and the listening experience so enjoyable I hated for the story to end! I can’t wait for Sam’s next adventure!!

Need the narrator for the first book<br />

Books are great but narrator of first book WAS the voice of Wyndham. The upper crust accent of this narrator just does not work.
