DEATH IN THE EAST.
Edition: First printing.
London: Harvill Secker, (2019) dj. Hardcover first edition - The fourth book in the award-winning series featuring Calcutta police detective Captain Sam Wyndham and his Indian Sergeant Banerjee. This skillfully combines two stories: In 1905, London, as a young constable, Sam Wyndham is involved in the brutal murder of an old friend, Bessie Drummond, who is found brutally beaten in her own room, locked from the inside. Although he vows to get justice, he is pushed aside from the investigation and an innocent man, a young Jewish immigrant, becomes an easy scapegoat and he is hanged for the murder. In India in 1922, Wyndham leaves Calcutta for an ashram where he hopes to conquer his opium addiction. But when he sees a ghost from his life in London - a man thought to be long dead - he calls his friend and colleague Sergeant Banerjee for help. Author's note. 414 pp. ISBN: 978-1787300576.
