    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.

    Overall

    This is a masterpiece of fiction, from one of the greatest living writers. But what also made this a wonderful listen was the masterful reading by Aasif Mandvi. This cannot have been an easy book to narrate, but Mandvi could not have been more perfect. The range of voices he used, and the appropriateness of each one was just perfect. All in all it kept me engrossed for many hours. A great book and reading!
