This book has obviously been written by somebody who has either never been in India or has only briefly visited - my guess is never been there. I was born and brought up in India during the Raj so know about Simla and the other hill stations where we spent every summer. There are references to "lungurs" which are not found above 4000 feet and Simla is over 7000 feet - "Bengalis" and many other things which are absolute nonsense.
For the uninitiated I suppose it is romantic and exotic but I guessed right at the beginning who was the killer - it was simply too obvious and as an Agatha Christie fan - find this actually quite childish.
