Review

An Amazon Rising Star of Autumn 2016: Abir Mukherjee’s debut novel is narrated by former Scotland Yard detective Captain Sam Wyndham, a First World War veteran with painful memories who arrives in Calcutta in 1919 to join the police force. Before he has had a chance to settle into his new home, he is tasked with solving the murder of a senior British official. His superiors believe that Indian activists are responsible for the civil servant’s death and news of the massacre at Amritsar foments unrest among the population. As a result, he finds himself embroiled not only in the politics of Empire but also the internecine struggles of his countrymen. Despite the occasional jarring anachronism and a few too many undigested gobbets of historical information, A Rising Man is an assured novel: well researched and vivid, with a strong plotline, delivered with verve and some appealingly wry humour. - Laura Wilson, The Guardian
