A Madras Miasma

1 Mins read

Madras MiasmaSet in the eponymous Indian city just after World War I, the green shoots of India’s desire for independence are pushing through. Superintendent Christian Le Fanu is in self-imposed exile from England, and is summoned to investigate when the body of a white woman is found in one of the city’s insanitary canals. Sensing the possible political repercussions, Le Fanu must walk on egg-shells, and he discovers that it’s not the Indians who are corrupt but his white countrymen. The ex-pat community’s veneer of respectability conceals a plethora of crimes – some small, others truly evil. Le Fanu is a completely credible and fully fleshed-out character, and the sights, sounds and smells of a vibrant colonial past are described with wit and conviction. Our full review is here.
