Product Description

Free-spirited and ultra-modern Elizabeth Mainwarring returned to the sultry, spice-scented land of her birth for one last go at mending the breach with her long-estranged sire. She met Major Covington-Singh: a prince and officer in her father's regiment. The man was tall, dark, and utterly irresistible.

Yet there was peril in desiring him. He warned her against falling for a wog, a blacky-white, an Anglo-Indian. It might be modern times in England, but not here. Even for the son of a duke and a maharaja. Why, even Elizabeth's father would disapprove! And then there were the recent happenings: the murders, the cruel strangling of those who were indiscreet. For Elizabeth to love Nigel meant death. And there was a...Blood Moon Over Bengal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful debut! 19 Jan 2006
By Julia
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The action takes place in India in 1932. "Ultra-modern" Elizabeth Mainwarring has inherited a fortune and a sheep farm in New Zealand. After her mother abandoned her father when she was a child, she grew up in England and decides to visit her father to try to get closer to him. She arrives with her best friend and companion Fiona in an unforgettable way. They arrived in an old flyer, Elizabeth being the pilot and doing an emergency landing on a parade ground.
Major Nigel Covington-Singh is the son of an Indian maharaja and the grandson of an British duke. He has been educated in England, and is trying to make a career for himself, without the help or influence of his father. He has to face a lot of prejudices and as soon as he sees Elizabeth feels a powerful attraction to her, but he knows that no British father wants a blacky-white near his daughter.
Lately, people are worried because of the violent murders of women. Nigel is in charge of the investigation and he suspects than the killer is British and that this is not the first time or place he has acted. Soon he fears that Elizabeth could be the next victim, since it seems the killer is attacking women who are involved with men of other races.
I don't have words to describe this book. The author makes a great work placing us in the middle of the British Colonial India. I could imagine everything perfectly as if I was watching a movie, since she covers all: the clothes, the weather, the gossip and intrigues, the prejudices, the political turmoil, etc. And the suspense is great too. Who is this killer and who will be the next victim? And for the romance, I really like Nigel and Elizabeth. Their characterization is great, and they are very interesting with virtues and flaws.

If you want a book that is a bit different - then this is the book for you. A good book taking in the attitudes of the time. Plenty of murders and who did it not revealed until the end of the book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not enjoyable to me 18 Jan 2014
Very modern Elizabeth Mainwarring has stopped of in British control India on her way to New Zealand to see her father, man who she has not seen many years. While there she meets Major Nigel Covington-Singh an prince and a member of her father's regiment. Soon Elizabeth and Nigel become involved in a passionate affair. But there is danger all around them and their new love may not be able to protect them from it.
"Blood Moon Over Bengal" by Morag McKendrick Pippin was not a good, as least to me. I found the characters not that interesting and the storyline very boring. I just couldn't relate to them and I was forcing myself to finish the book. Others may have enjoyed "Blood Moon Over Bengal" but I was not one of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! 25 Oct 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Set in Calcutta, State of Bengal, 1932. Elizabeth Mainwarring was en route to New Zealand, where she has a sheep station and land full of oil. However, before she finally settles down in New Zealand, Elizabeth stops in Calcutta to visit her estranged father, Colonel Andrew Mainwarring, in hopes of mending the breach. The area is already in disarray due to several recent murders.
Major Nigel Covington-Singh is the youngest of the Maharaja of Kashmir's three sons. Even though he is a prince and an officer, the British officers and wives consider him beneath them in station. Nigel is a "wog", half English and half Indian. That does not mean that those snobbish wives do not try to seduce Nigel though. The man is very handsome. Nigel is part of the team investigating the "Bengal Killer". The killer has killed many Indian women already. Recently the killer began targeting the British women, but only those who have been with men outside their own race.
Elizabeth and Nigel cannot help the attraction they feel for each other. Elizabeth is too modern to care what others will think of her for dating Nigel, but feels as though she is not worthy of an Indian Prince. Interestingly enough, Nigel feels that she is his superior. The biggest problem they face, though, is the killer. And the killer now has Elizabeth penned as his next target.
***** This mystery-thriller has the taste of a Regency romance with the dangerous flavor of India's jungles mixed in. The only thing missing was the glorious ball rooms of London. But the majestic ball rooms of Bengal are just as breathtaking! The author set a murder mystery AND thriller plot during a volatile time in Bengal history. At this time, Bengal was still going for Home Rule (self government).
