The killing of a Hindu theologian in Calcutta sets the city ablaze with religious and political conflict in the fifth instalment in Abir Mukherjee’s bestselling series that features Captain Wyndham and Sergeant Banerjee solving crimes in 1920s India.

Shortlisted for the CWA Gold Dagger 2022

Award-winning writer Abir Mukherjee is back with another brilliant mystery novel in the Raj-era Wyndham and Banerjee series.

Calcutta, 1923

When a Hindu theologian is found murdered in his home, the city is on the brink of all-out religious war. Can officers of the Imperial Police Force, Captain Sam Wyndham and Sergeant Surendranath Banerjee track down those responsible in time to stop a bloodbath?

Set at a time of heightened political tension, beginning in atmospheric Calcutta and taking the detectives all the way to bustling Bombay, the latest instalment in this 'unmissable' (The Times) series presents Wyndham and Banerjee with an unprecedented challenge. Will this be the case that finally drives them apart?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Captivating, moving and exciting, it's historical fiction at its finest - Sunday Express

Another compelling, thoughtful and atmospheric episode in this fine series - Mail on Sunday

Abir Mukherjee is doing something uniquely different in the crime genre. His evocation of 1920s India under British occupation is breathtaking. He takes you there with luscious strokes of his pen and a dry wit, keeping you on the edge of your seat as he spins his tale. - Peter May, Sunday Times bestselling author

I loved the slick dovetailing of the dual narrative and the sharp, humorous writing...An engaging, evocative thriller that captures the heat of Indian nights and heady days of a bygone era, without being sentimental or simplistic. For me, the murder mystery and historical elements were perfectly woven together. - Janice Hallett, author of Sunday Times bestseller The Appeal on The Shadows of Men

Abir Mukherjee's terrific crime novels are set in India in the 1920s. The Shadows of Men is vivid and brutal - Sunday Times, Crime Book of the Month
