This is an excellent book, but I was surprised to find that I had already listened to it in another edition. It is unfortunate that Audible doesn't warn you of that.

I will start off by saying I will definitely get the second book in this series and look forward to using a credit for it. This is despite this debut story in a new crime series not meeting my expectations. I think the pacing was too slow and my mind wondered too much. I am optimistic that the next story will be better.
I did enjoy parts of this audiobook though. The characters were written so that I cared about them. That would include Captain Wyndham, a former Scotland Yard detective that has just moved to colonial India. Sergeant Banerjee is a newly promoted Calcutta detective with excellent instincts. I wish the book had been from Banerjee's point of view instead of Wyndham's since it was interesting to see how the English treated the native citizens of India. The history in the story carried me to the end of the story.
Without question, the narration by Mark Williams was excellent.
