A Rising Man
The Captain Sam Wyndham Series
Captain Sam Wyndham, a former Scotland Yard detective, is a new arrival to Calcutta. Desperately seeking a fresh start after his experiences during the Great War, he has been recruited to head up a new post in the police force. But with barely a moment to acclimatise to his new life, Wyndham is caught up in a murder investigation that will take him into the dark underbelly of the British Raj. A senior official has been murdered, and a note left in his mouth warns the British to quit India – or else. With rising political dissent and the stability of the Raj under threat, Wyndham and his colleagues embark upon an investigation that will take them from the luxurious parlours of wealthy British traders to the seedy opium dens of the city.

Toddler in tow, Bee Rowlatt embarks upon an extraordinary journey in search of the life and legacy of the first celebrity feminist: Mary Wollstonecraft. From the wild coasts of Norway to a naked re-birthing in California, via the blood-soaked streets of revolutionary Paris, Bee learns what drove her hero on, and what’s been won and lost over the centuries in the battle for equality. On this biographical treasure hunt she finds herself consulting a witch, a porn star, a quiet Norwegian archivist and the tenants of a blighted council estate in Leeds – getting much more than she bargained for.
