I love the atmosphere of India that the author manages to imbue into her stories.
While the twists and turns of this particular story made it not quite as enjoyable as the previous three, I still enjoyed the book and especially Joe.

Barbara Cleverly delivers a taut mystery with a sufficient number of red herrings to keep you guessing, without muddling the fine structure needed for the eventual resolution - cleverly indeed. This is a mystery in the vein of Christie, not P.D. James or Ruth Rendell. There are no psychological insights, but there are nice details of history and politics and even culture. Good quality entertainment.

Joe Sandilands, the protagonist, is clever and capable without being unrealistically brilliant - he has his off-moments and comes off the page as a human being.

Enjoyable.
