      TRUSTWORTHY

      all reviews
      Talwar by Robert Carter is in many ways a clone of James Clavell’s novels. This is not coincidental, as he refers to the inspiration that Clavell gave him.

      Unlike Clavell’s novels, which were typically set in China or Japan, Talwar takes place in India, during that turbulent time when the English and French were fighting for control,


      either outright or by proxy, of the riches of this ancient and fabled land.

      Like Clavell, Carter mixes history and fiction.

      The character for which the two collide is Robert Clive - a real historic figure, who Carter has used as a major character in this novel.

      Clive is a clerk in the Honourable East India ...


      • Company, who through sure acts of bravery and courage under fire repeatedly defeats much larger Indian and French forces with his force of sepoys and Englishman.

        The main character in the novel is fictional - Hayden Flint is the son of a powerful free trader, and is thrust into the middle of the complicated world of Indian politics

        by acting as an intermediary for the British and Company interests.

        The novel is dense, the characters are well-written, the setting is fabulous and the plot twists and turns and keeps you guessing where it will end up.

        I really enjoyed this novel, and any fan of Clavell should also be a fan of Robert Carter’s Talwar.
