At least he was well dressed. Black tie, tux, the works. If you’re going to get yourself killed, you may as well look your best.

Calcutta, 1919: the massacre of Amritsar is fuelling civil unrest and tensions are running high.

Into the fray steps Captain Sam Wyndham, morphine addicted and a troubled veteran of the Great War, he is desperate for a fresh start in Calcutta's police force.

He is soon called to the scene of a horrifying murder. The victim was a senior official, and a note in his mouth warns the British to leave India - or else.

With the stability of the Empire under threat, Wyndham and Sergeant "Surrender-not" Banerjee must solve the case quickly.

But there are some who will do anything to stop them...
