Join us for an event at The Bookseller Crow with Jonathan in conversation with Abir Mukherjee, the author of the award-winning Wyndham & Banerjee series of crime novels set in Raj-era India. The Shadows of Men, his latest in the series published on the day of the event, is set in 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?
