LoveReading Says

This searingly eloquent historical crime novel set in 1920’s India contains sharply pointed humour and a thrilling plot. Imperial Police Force officers Sam Wyndham and Surendranath Banerjee find themselves up to their necks in trouble when a murder threatens religious war. Here we are at book five in the award-winnning Wyndham and Banerjee series. Not only does each successive book add to the intricate layers that have gone before, but they also manage to exceed sky-high expectations. You could also successfully step in part way through this series and feel right at home (always the sign of fabulous writing). Having said that, do start with A Rising Man and work your way through in order, as to miss the full experience of this reading journey would be a crime. The joy of the relationship between Banerjee and Wyndham, and how it alters and grows is one of the highlights for me. It is continuing to develop into a true partnership, where each brings their own particular strengths and learns from the other. I can happily declare that these two are among my favourite crime-fighting duo’s in literature and I loved the dual narrative. Abir Mukherjee has the most exquisite timing, the humour stings as it plays alongside the drama and violence. The setting of Calcutta and Bombay, and the political and social history of this time roar into vibrant evocative life. The Shadows of Men is a vivid, powerful, scorching-hot read that I can recommend with my heart and soul as a LoveReading Star Book and Liz Pick of the Month.
