The Murder Of The Maharajah


Author: H.R.F. Keating
0 (0 Votes)

A princely state in India, 1930, under the British raj. To Bhopore and its opulent Summer Palace comes a handful of Western visitors to meet the outrageous Maharajah and his entourage.

There they meet the Maharajah's heir, the sensual Porgy, and his English chorus-girl mistress. They meet the enigmatic chief minister—and the aloof British resident, with his dignified little nine-year-old son. And before long they also meet sudden death....

Various people in the palace become suspects, and an imperturbable district superintendent of police is summoned. But who will he find guilty of the murder of the Maharajah?
