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.

The historical background and setting were the strongest part of this novel. Unfortunately the story needed a LOT of work. I knew who the culprit was almost immediately, and the author had his main character running around almost incessantly, perhaps to have plenty of opportunities to showcase the atmosphere of 1920 Calcutta. I also thought the author was a bit heavy handed in his dipiction of the prejudice and injustice done against the native Indians by the British. A more subtle approach would have been more palatable. The narrator did a good job with the multitude of characters.
