The Raj Quartet by Paul Scott
The definitive literary portrait of the final years of British India. India, August 1942. A young British woman, Daphne Manners, is raped in the Bibighar Gardens in Mayapore. The investigation is led by Ronald Merrick, an unscrupulous officer whose distaste for the Indian population is matched only by his disdain for the British governing class. With the Japanese threatening invasion and Gandhi demanding independence, British rule has never seemed more precarious, and the tensions that explode at Mayapore reflect the seething political turmoil of India itself.
This superb collection consists of; 1. The Jewel in the Crown. 2. The Day of the Scorpion. 3. The Towers of Silence. 4. A Division of the Spoils.
