Product description

BOOK FOUR OF THE RAJ QUARTET The British Raj in India is in its final days. But the fall of the Empire is both the end of one era and the beginning of another. For the Hindus and Muslims, the political reality signals inevitable post-war recriminations and future territorial wrangles. For Guy Perron, Field Sergeant and historian, these last days are a time to reflect on the legacy the British has left behind in India. And for the British families still residing in India, decisions about their future must be made and final goodbyes must be said, all against the backdrop of one of the most turbulent periods of social change the world has ever seen.

Review quote

"Its two great and time-resting virtues are, first, the extraordinary range of characters it so skilfully portrays and, second, its powerful evocation of the last days of British India" Times Literary Supplement "A mighty literary experience" The Times "Quite simply, monumental" Washington Post
