Terry Wale reads in a well-paced, deliberate manner, delineating each character with various intonations and British accents. An odd cast of characters finds themselves at a lonely British outpost on the Afghan border: various soldiers, the commandant and his wife, a Scotland Yard policemen, a young American adverturess, a middle-aged woman doctor, and several educated Afghani tribesmen. One of the group is murdered, and the inspector sets out to identify the perpetrator. As he follows various red herrings, the mystery plot vies with details of the historical locale, a fascinating place of wild culture and danger. A complex solution ensues.
