The Palace Tiger by Barbara Cleverly is the fourth book of the Joe Sandilands mystery series, set in 1922 India. Joe Sandilands, a Scotland Yard inspector, expects to return shortly to England. However British Governor Sir George Jardine has yet another mission for Joe. He is sent to Ranipur, a Princely State, to investigate suspicious events. The Maharajah is dying; his eldest son and heir has been killed. A tiger is attacking and killing children of nearby villages. Before Joe's eyes, the second heir dies. On a royal tiger hunt, Joe is unable to prevent the death of the third heir. Intriguing, deceptive female characters with selfish, nefarious objectives provide ample red herrings and plot twists for Joe to unravel. Not to mention the fearsome chief of royal police. Who can be trusted? A fascinating tale of British occupation in India, rich with period detail. Inspired by the author's family mementos; her great-uncle served in British India.
