Book Description

India, 1922. In this, the fourth in the acclaimed Joe Sandilands series, Scotland Yard detective Joe arrives in the princely state of Ranipur at the request of the Maharajah, an old ally of the British. The Maharajah is dying, and the succession is unclear. The death of his first son, while panther-wrestling, is suspicious, but as Joe begins to investigate a second son dies dramatically right before his eyes. With only the youngest, aged 12, now left to succeed, can Joe ensure his survival? In the glittering and luxurious setting of the court with its array of powerful, scheming characters, Joe must find his way through the maze of intrigue to trap, at last, the palace tiger.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS SERIES JUST GETS BETTTER & BETTER ! 12 Dec. 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Having already read the three previous titles in the Joe Sandilands series, I was very much looking forward to this, the latest installment.Ms.Cleverly has come up with another winner, the sense of time and place is magical, with a plot that twists and turns like a corkscrew.
Do yourself a favour - go back to the beginning and start with 'Last Kashmiri Rose'- then read them all. You'll be hooked too. Roll on the next one in the series !!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Palace Tiger by Barbara Cleverly 2 Sept. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As an avowed Indiaphile, I loved this! The story is set in a palace, during the final days of British rule, and the story rollocks along at a good pace with interesting twists and turns --- full of surprises and dark deeds...
Barbara Cleverly has a gift for setting the scene in period - and this little story is full of details true to the times.
For someone who enjoys the exotic side of Indian history - no question! Get it!

4.0 out of 5 stars a treat 28 Nov. 2005
Format:Paperback
i enjoyed this book very much. it kept me guessing 'til the end, and maybe i missed the clues but i hadn't sussed whodunnit, but didn't feel cheated that i hadn't suspected the guilty party as i found it quite plausible. i've enjoyed the books being set in india as it's a peek into another world and time. i'm disappointed the next is set in the uk, but no doubt once i find the time to start it will be as hooked as i have been by cleverly's writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enya 15 Mar. 2013
By Emmer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story held a special interest for me as my mother was born in India and my grandfather served there during this period. The plot was somewhat complicated and with the Indian names one had to concentrate on who did what. An intriguing story with details of the lifestyle in India during the 1920s.

another of the Joe Sandilands mysteries and is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours of escapism. nothing too taxing but quite a good plot plus some insight into the time of the Raj.
