More gems

audaIn A Rising Man by Abir Mukherjee, a widowed veteran of the Great War accepts a post with the imperial police force in 1919 Calcutta. Tensions rise when the body of a British official is found with a note stuffed in his mouth demanding that the British leave India. The nuanced relationship between our hero and his Indian assistant adds depth to this cleverly plotted mystery.   Adua by Igiaba Scego, begins with a dilemma.  Should a Somali exile return to her war-torn country to claim her ancestral home?   “Lovely prose”,  “memorable characters” and “though-provoking” situations make this a  “moving” read. (Publishers Weekly).
