A Christmas Garland

This features Narraway in his first posting s a young army officer, sent to India in the midst of the violent and ruthless Indian mutiny. ” He’s given the job of defending a medical orderly who seems to have allowed an Indian prisoner to escape, who then caused the ambush and murder of several British soldiers. ” The evidence looks incontrovertible, and Narraway is at a loss as to how to defend the man in any way that makes it look like justice is being done and doesn’t make himself look like a helpless amateur. ” This is the story of the making of Narraway as a man, and as a policeman.
