Joe Sandilands, Scotland Yard detective and WWI hero stationed in India, is sent to Ranipur to help kill a man-eating tiger. Upon his arrival, the heir to the Maharajah of Ranipur is killed in an airplane accident. Caught in the byzantine intrigue of the Indian royal family, Sandilands realizes that his death and the death of the previous heir were not accidental. Terry Wale’s crisp accents and varied pacing subtly differentiate each character, whether Scots, British, Indian, or American. Sandilands’s investigation is painstakingly detailed, and Wale’s narration is precise as the author weaves motivation and method into palace politics and murder.
