From the author of the famous RAJ QUARTET.

“I can't think of anything worth knowing about the Raj in India that Scott hasn't told me... His contribution to literature is permanent”
New York Times
“Beautifully constructed... An even richer tapestry of Indian and British character than its predecessor”
“An achievement of unusual dimensions and power”
