LibraryThing is a cataloging and social networking site for booklovers (22) The third book in this mesmerizing tale of the end of the British rule of India 4/5(14). A tower of silence (known also as a ‘dakhma’) is a type of structure used for funerary purposes by adherents of the Zoroastrian faith.

This Zoroastrian practice for the disposal of the dead involves the exposure of the corpse to the sun and : Dhwty. In the India oftwo rapes take place simultaneously - that of an English girl in Mayapore, and that of India by the British. In each, physical violence, racial animosity, the coercion of the weak by the strong all play their part, but playing a part too are love, affection, loyalty, and recognition that the last division of all to be overcome is the colour of the skin.

Scott repeats characters and episodes from both The Jewel in the Crown () and The Day of the Scorpion () but the violence is now interior &#; vultures coming home to roost on silent.
