Captain Sam Wyndham is an attractive main character, who learns about Bengali Calcutta as he hunts a murderer and a train robber. Mukherjee gives the reader a wonderful look at 1919 Calcutta with the politics of the Indian independence movement butting heads with the complacent British Raj. What Sam learns, the reader learns. as well. The supporting characters are well drawn and interesting. I'm looking forward to Abir Mukherjee's newest novel in the series.
