A Necessary Evil by Abir Mukherjee

Oh my…I’ve just finished A Necessary Evil by Abir Mukherjee, the second in the Captain Sam Wyndham and Sergeant ‘Surrender-Not’ Banerjee series set in India during the 1920,s….and it was superb, I can’t believe it was even better than the first book.


The historical side of the British Raj and India is amazing, I’ve not really been a reader of historical fiction but this series has me absolutely hooked, the way Abir writes is so vivid and enthralling it’s like you can physically smell and feel the story, amazingly talented to be able to do that! 


The main characters of Wyndham and Bannerjee are even more loveable in this second helping, they have flaws but work so well together as a detective duo, and the added black humor that’s dotted thru the storyline is superb. 
The plot was well thought out and very in depth, again Abir is a master of this.


I have to say that after reading 2 of this series now, I just adore them, I think these books are probably up there with my favorite series ever! 


I cannot think of enough words of praise for Abir and his writing, if there’s one person I would love to meet and have a long conversation with, it’s you Sir, as I feel you would have me mesmerized with your knowledge of all things India and Opium during the British Raj.


A definite 5 ⭐️ Read ….if you want books to only immerse yourself in, this series is for you!

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
