Lead Review

  • Book: The Jewel in the Crown (Raj Quartet 1)
  • Location: India
  • Author: Paul Scott



“The Jewel in the Crown” combines an almost impossibly deep understanding of India and her colonial rulers with fictional characters of such colour and complexity that it beggars belief they are not and have never been flesh. The decline of British rule and the rise of Indian nationalism forms the background for a novel of astonishing depth and imagination (A Customer on Amazon)
