About me

Location London, England, United Kingdom
Introduction This blog refers to the book The Hindostanee Coffee House. The book introduces Sake Dean Mahomet, founder of the world's first Indian curry house in London's George Street, as he tries to establish the reasons behind the death of one of his clients. He is ably supported by the young cousin of his Irish wife Jane, Decimus Doyle, who is studying at the Hunterian Medical School in Soho. The pair soon become enmeshed in a world of body-snatchers, cricketers, politicians and actors, all set in Europe's most dynamic and populus city. And in the distance the drums of war are banging in both Europe and North America.
