The year is 1857, soon after the tragic Siege of Cawnpore. In the British garrison, a guard is killed and an Indian prisoner escapes. Cries for revenge ring out. Despite no evidence against him, British orderly John Tallis is arrested simply because he was unaccounted for at the time. Young lieutenant Victor Narraway is chosen to defend Tallis, and his superiors merely want a show trial. But a stubborn faith in justice inspires Narraway to search for the truth.

The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

I read these books each year as Anne Perry writes them. I always enjoy them, but this one, set in India, was not my favourite. A new officer must try to clear a medic of a crime. Satifsying resolution, but I do prefer the books in this series set in England instead.

I enjoyed this.Some parts hard to read, about the British in India. But some good characters.

Okay, things like this happen in real life, but they don't make for a very suspenseful mystery.
