bookshelves: adult, historical, thrillers-mysteries
Read in September, 2011

A mystery set in northwest India, near Afghanistan, when Cleverly's detective hero Joe Sandilands is escorting a lively American heiress who wants to see something more exciting than the staid British enclaves she has been to up until now. She gets her wish as murder and kidnapping liven her visit considerably, pitching Joe into the middle of an international incident that could result in war with the uneasy Afghan tribes. Not my favorite of the four Indian Sandilands books, but still an interesting view of the time (1921) and the situation, and there's a great deal of relevance to the contemporary period!
