Calcutta police detective Captain Sam Wyndham and his quick-witted Indian Sergeant, Surrender-not Banerjee, are back for another rip-roaring adventure set in 1920s India.

1905, London.

When Bessie Drummond, an old flame of Sam Wyndham's, is attacked in the street, he is determined to get to the bottom of it. But the next day, Bessie is found dead in her room and Wyndham soon finds himself caught up in her murder investigation. The case will cost the young constable more than he ever imagined.

1922, India.

Leaving Calcutta, Wyndham heads for the hills of Assam, ready to put his opium addiction behind him. But when he arrives, he sees a ghost from his life in London - a man thought to be long dead, a man Wyndham hoped he would never see again.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'As ever, Abir Mukherjee brings sardonic wit to his portrayal of British rule in India and the action is perfectly paced, but this volume has a depth that makes it stand out. His best yet' - Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express

'In his most accomplished and complex novel yet, Mukherjee keeps the reader enthralled as the duo race towards a brilliant conclusion. Death in the East is a contender for the best thriller of the year.' - Jon Coates, Daily Express

'Death in the East is the best so far of an unmissable series' - Antonia Senior, The Times, Book of the month

'The perfect combination of mystery and history' - Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express, Books of the Year

'A skilfully blended dual narrative: twice the intrigue, twice the fun. Mukherjee is at the top of his game' - Mick Herron, award-winning author of London Blues
