Something about a freshly frosted backyard that makes me want to take photos!
Thanks to Pegasus Books for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review.
A NECESSARY EVIL – Abir Mukherjee (Releasing April 3rd, 2018)
Some historical fiction to mix in with the crime genre!
Here’s the synopsis:
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 modernizer whose attitudes—and romantic relationships—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 . . .
Who likes the mixing of genre elements? I love any kind of historical fiction, so when it meets a crime novel, I’m definitely going to grab a copy!
