The fabulously wealthy kingdom of Sambalpore is home to tigers, elephants, diamond mines and the beautiful Palace of the Sun. But when the heir to the throne is assassinated in the presence of Captain Sam Wyndham and Sergeant 'Surrender-Not' Banerjee, they discover a kingdom riven with suppressed conflict. Prince Adhir was a moderniser whose attitudes - and romantic relationship - may have upset the more religious elements of his country, while his brother -- now in line to the throne -- appears to be a feckless playboy. As Wyndham and Banerjee desperately try to unravel the mystery behind the assassination, they become entangled in a dangerous world where those in power live by their own rules and those who cross their paths pay with their lives. They must find a murderer, before the murderer finds them...

As in the first book, the location is the star here. We don't spend as much time in Calcutta this go around but into the kingdom of Sambalpore, where the British do not have jurisdiction.

It's been about a year since "A Rising Man". Sam and "Surrender-not" are still living together, Sam is still smitten with Annie (who is rightly having none of this or is at very least playing coy), and our boys witness an assassination. Of the Maharaja's son, who was pushing reforms. They end up investigation anyway even while staying in Sambalpore and of course the assassination isn't what it seems.

My heart is still stolen by "A Rising Man" but this was a solid follow up and, also like the previous one, I'm game for more.
