A Rising Man by Abir Mukherjee

My first read of the Captain Sam Wyndham and Sergeant ‘Surrender-Not’ Bannerjee was really a wonderful experience. 
Set in Calcutta India in 1919 this book is a thrilling jaunt thru Indian life and society when the British were its rulers. I’m not one for historical novels but I have to tell you, I loved it so much, Abir’s writing is poetic at times and so well described was the setting that I felt I was there! This book is the first in the series and we see the relationship between Sam and Surrender-Not blossom and grow as the book goes on. There’s political thrills, crime, heat, humidity and bad food in this book. 
I’m so glad I was recommended to read this series. I’m super impressed by this book as it has also taught me about a way of life I’d never known, but I’ve always had a fascination for India, and I will admit I’ve been Googling Indian history and learning as I was reading.
5 Star  ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've been a bookworm since I was able to read my first Janet & John books at 4 years old! I have read so many books, that I wish I had kept a list since I was young. My words are my own, my opinions are my own! I love Thrillers and Crime Fiction and am happy to receive ARC's and will post reviews on The Storygraph, Amazon, Instagram, and Twitter Twitter - @judefire33 Instagram - @judefire33 The Storygraph - @judefire33 Goodreads - @judefire33
