    When Maximilian Ophuls is murdered outside his daughter's home by his Kashmiri Muslim driver, it appears to be a political killing. Ophuls is the former U.S. ambassador to India and America's leading figure in counter-terrorism. But there is much more to Ophuls and his assassin, a mysterious man calling himself "Shalimar the Clown", than meets the eye. One woman is at the center of their shared history, a history of betrayal and deception.

    Barry says: "Incredible"
    "Rushdie at his best"
    Overall

    This is a brilliant and moving book. Its beautifully crafted sentences will dazzle you, its wonderful characters will surprise you and hold you rapt, and its plot will move you now to tears now to laughter. All this while you are being taught the politics of the fight over Kashmir through the lives of people in the tiny village of Pachigam and the metropolis of Los Angeles.
