India, 1920. Captain Sam Wyndham is visiting the kingdom of Sambalpore, home to diamond mines and the beautiful Palace of the Sun.
But when the Maharajaâs eldest son is assassinated, Wyndham realises that the realm is riven with conflict. Prince Adhir was unpopular with religious groups, while his brother â now in line to the throne â appears to be a feckless playboy.
As Wyndham and Sergeant âSurrender-notâ Banerjee endeavour to unravel the mystery, they become entangled in a dangerous world. They must find the murderer, before the murderer finds them.
Praise for the Sam Wyndham series:
âAn exceptional historical crime novelâ
âA thought-provoking rollercoasterâ
âConfirms Abir Mukherjee as a rising star of historical crime fictionâ
If you enjoyed A Necessary Evil, pre-order the third Sam Wyndham mystery, Smoke and Ashes, now.
