Autor: Abir Mukherjee
Abir Mukherjee grew up in the West of Scotland. At the age of fifteen, his best friend made him read Gorky Park and he's been a fan of crime fiction ever since. The child of immigrants from India, A Rising Man , his debut novel, was inspired by a desire to learn more about this crucial period in Anglo-Indian history that seems to have been almost forgotten. It won the Harvill Secker/ Daily Telegraph crime writing competition and is the first in a new series starring Captain Sam Wyndham and 'Surrender-Not' Banerjee. Abir lives in London with his wife and two sons.
