Description

Confessions of a Thug was one of the best-selling crime novels of the 19th century, and was the most influential novel about India prior to Rudyard Kipling’s Kim (1901). Written by Philip Meadows Taylor in 1839, it was based on the Thuggee cult in British India.
Adopted and raised by a thug, Ameer Ali committed around 719 murders in his lifetime just by the use of a roomal, strangling his prey with his grip, thus preventing any noise from being heard. Confessions of a Thug is a strikingly vivid, chilling and immensely readable thriller.
