Abir Mukherjee & Vaseem Khan: Murderous Empire

Abir Mukherjee & Vaseem Khan: Murderous Empire

Bestselling crime authors Abir Mukherjee and Vaseem Khan are making a very welcome return to the festival. They have both written tales of murder set in historical India. In this conversation they will examine the critical period of Indian history from the 1920s to just after Indian Independence in 1947. In these three decades the Quit India movement, led by Gandhi, achieved its goal of ousting the British - but at a heavy cost. Through the lens of their crime fiction, Abir and Vaseem will bring to life an era that has helped shape the modern India that we know today.
