Book Description
From dusty official files of the half-forgotten popular literature of a dark past, the wicked city unravels a fascinating panorama of crime in the colonial metropolis of calcutta over two centuries. It begins in the eighteenth century with the plots of bribery and murderous vendetta hatched in governor warren hastings' office in the white town- the tiny european part of the city. the story then moves into the dingy backstreets of the black town''- the vast, sprawling bengali habitation-and offers a glimpse into the world of indigenous dacoits.
