    Story
    "Excellent British Raij Police Procedural"

    This is an exceptional police procedural set in the 1920s in British India. The story is a fine mixture of a classic golden era mystery with a classic golden era adventure. Very well done!

    Story
    "What a Great Series!"

    This is my fifth novel by Barbara Cleverly. Impeccable research combined with a riveting thriller leave the reader anxious for the next installment.

    All that is needed is for Audible to add the Kashmiri Rose-first in the series. Highly recommended for Charles Todd fans,

    "Good, twisty plot"

    I never guess all of what's going on in this series of books, which is great. And the narration is great as always from this reader
