The year is 1857, soon after the tragic Siege of Cawnpore. In the British garrison, a guard is killed and an Indian prisoner escapes, which leads to yet more British deaths. Cries for revenge are overwhelming. Despite no witnesses and no evidence against him, a luckless British medical orderly named John Tallis is arrested as an accomplice simply because he was the only soldier unaccounted for when these baffling crimes were committed.

Though chosen to defend Tallis, young Lieutenant Victor Narraway is not encouraged to try very hard. Narraway's superiors merely want a show trial. But inspired by a soldier's widow and her children, and by his own stubborn faith in justice, Narraway searches for the truth.

In an alien world haunted by memories of massacre, he is the accused man's only hope. The trial of John Tallis equals the white-knuckle best of Anne Perry's breathtaking courtroom dramas, as Narraway struggles to persevere against appalling odds and a frightful injustice.

    " I began to like Anne Perry by reading her Christmas novellas. She packs a lot of thought and a clever mystery into each little book. This one has some very grim images but she finishes with hope. "

    " This is the tenth of Anne Perry's Christmas novels, not the best of them, but satisfying. As many others have pointed out, the main characters in these books are from the Pitt or Monk series so they have an appeal for her fans that is lost on a reader who is looking for a Christmas story. Although the context is Christmas, they are more about a personal redemption than anything else. I am a fan of Victorian novels since I read The Complete Works of Sherlock Holmes as a young teen. Anne Perry is a favorite. "

    " A good little mystery set in India during war time of 1857. Although at Christmas time, there is very little of Christmas to the story. "

    " What would Christmas be like without a new Anne Perry Christmas Mystery? It would be a lot harder to escape our modern day holiday craziness and lose ourselves in the Victorian era. This time, the story revolves around a military murder trial in India. Perry successfully creates a twist on the locked room mystery that leaves the reader guessing until the end. Forget about wrapping presents and settle back for an intriguing Christmas Mystery. "
