When amateur sleuth detective Kate Shackleton receives a dawn telephone call from her cousin, James, his news soon snaps Kate into wakefulness. The India office seek her on-the-spot help in finding a maharajah last seen on the Bolton Abbey estate. He has with him a hugely valuable diamond.
Investigative successes and good family connections put Kate in the highly trusted category. Perceived as 'establishment', Kate feels like an outsider in her sympathies. One thing she is sure of: her own skills and insights. Qualities that she is sure will help her unravel the latest disappearance on that fateful summer's day....

Kate Shackleton does it again.

Frances Brody has a lovy turn of phrase and sn entertainingly dry wit. This story combines so many strands, sunset of empire, cultural differences between poor and rich English and Indian and also the delightful tension between capable women and an establishment finding convenience in underestimating and undermining them. The story twists and turns so there is never a dull moment and Kate Dove gives a wonderful performance. Her voice reels you in from the start and her characters are delightfully convincing! i've already downloaded the next one.
