Aurora Solstad | 1 comments My dad is looking for a book.

He says its a:

Crime novel where the man character (from the USA or UK) has to travel to India to solve a complicated case. At the end of the book it is revealed that he has been tricked into taking the journey, possibly to bring something to India.

He claims he must have read it some time around 2005, allthough he is not entirely sure.

Any help is appreciated! Thank you

The Last Kashmiri Rose by Barbara Cleverly. It was published in 2001.

It is set in 1922 though... Was the one your dad read contemporary?
