Sam Wyndham and Surendranath Banerjee, two extraordinary officers in the Calcutta police, share a great bonding as a team and as friends. They’re on a mission to solve two suspiciously similar murders, while keeping their personal lives and secrets aside.
Set against the historical backdrop of the Non-cooperation movement and the intense battle for independence, Smoke and Ashes is a pacy historical fiction packed with mystery and action.
Right from the beginning till the very end, these two enthralling characters, though not perfect, will have you rooting for them:
Meet Captain Sam Wyndham
Meet Surendranath Banerjee
With the British Raj and the political tensions during the fervent fight for Independence at its heart, Smoke and Ashes is a thought provoking read that will transport you to a different place and time.
Abir Mukherjee has beautifully juxtaposed real people like Subhash Chandra Bose and Prince Edward, in this captivating fiction in a way that feels authentic to their real lives.
