A wonderful story of India during the Raj the politics the backstabbing and intrigue all rolled into a tale of innocence danger love lost, love found, and love forbidden.Well read apart from a few misprenunciations eg Himalayas pronounced Him-Are-Lee-Has,but easily forgiven as you can think of the narrator as Ash himself.

A Nice Story well Written But poorly narrated to many false commas leading to unwarranted pauses were clearly the narrative should flow frustrating but worth perservering

Upsetting but informative

A disturbing true story well written and investigated by the author. It has some graphic details which can be upsetting though it helps you understand the state of minds of the killers ,evil or not, a chilling account well read.

Totally brilliant account of air warfare from both sides,not just horrific and gripping but excellently written delivering a story of love,life,death,bravery,courage,and stupidity all in the period of 24 hours,a must for anyone with a sense of humanity and the futility of war.

Brilliant,superb from first to last, draws you in so much so that you feel the drought and the tension,feelings of grief and despair, followed by the joy and sense of relief as plenty abounds,a great story brilliantly narrated by ken stott,contains everything a good story should have,I'm away now to have a wee dram to salute one and all.
