    As much as I enjoy reading books that few have read, I m a little surprised nobody has read this or rated it I ve read a couple of the Inspector Ghote books by the same author, and I greatly respect his book Whodunit as well.The departed Maharajah in this book is not the most agreeable of men, to be sure, and everyone connected with him probably had a reason for wanting him dead Unfortunately, it s just a little too much like Agatha Christie s style Christie with an Indian flavour.I have j As much as I enjoy reading books that few have read, I m a little surprised nobody has read this or rated it I ve read a couple of the Inspector Ghote books by the same author, and I greatly respect his book Whodunit as well.The departed Maharajah in this book is not the most agreeable of men, to be sure, and everyone connected with him probably had a reason for wanting him dead Unfortunately, it s just a little too much like Agatha Christie s style Christie with an Indian flavour.I have just finished reading it, and it unfolded very much in the Christie style I know it was done as a homage to Christie, so that makes sense I probably will not read it again

    1930 India when the British ruled government and politics and the maharajahs commanded tradition, culture and religion Detective Superintendent of Police Howard must contend with both and is a silent white clothed specter who sees all, hears all and thinks much SPOILER ALERT Really curious that this is the prequel to the series, and introduces Schoolteacher Ghote.

    This book was slow paced and a bit redundant but I enjoyed the historical references and the descriptions of life in India under British rule Quite surprised to find out that interesting tidbit at the very end
