India Dark is a story of things kept secret, of conflicting wills and desires, set against the heat and dust of the lost empire.

I couldn't put this book down, even though the story was at times disturbing. This book had to be written: well done Kirsty Murray for tackling it, and once again bringing our lost history to life.
