The Wyndham and Banerjee Mysteries by Abir Mukherjee
Abir Mukherjee has penned down one of the best historical crime fiction of recent times. However, creating a plot in a different setting can be challenging.

The story revolves around a World War I veteran and former Scotland Yard detective, Wyndham, posted in Calcutta. He joins Surendranath Banerjee in investigating heinous crimes with a political or a historical backdrop. The characters are complex but weave in quickly into the Plot, making it an enjoyable read.
