Gold Dagger 2017


Abir Mukherjee

A Rising Man

Published by: Harvill Secker

A rich seam of humour is found in A Rising Man by Abir Mukherjee where brilliant interplay between characters alongside a cleverly constructed plot peppered with plenty of red herrings convincingly brings Colonial Calcutta to life. A beautifully crafted and assured debut.
