Praise for The Last Kashmiri Rose
In her spellbinding debut mystery, The Last Kashmiri Rose
, Barbara Cleverly evokes both the enchantments and the dangers of India during the convulsive later days of the Raj.--The New York Times Book Review
Has just about everything: a fresh, beautifully realized exotic setting; a strong, confident protagonist; a poignant love story; and an exquisitely complex plot.--The Denver Post
In an impressive debut, British author Cleverly weaves an engrossing tale of serial murder and the impending decline of the British Empire into a well-written fair-play mystery set in 1920s India.
The splendor, beauty and politics of the last days of the Raj come brilliantly to life in The Last Kashmiri Rose
. All the characters, Indian and British, are fully fleshed out, and Ms. Cleverly is also a dazzling plotter, with talent to rival the grand masters of the genre.
