Ragtime in Simla (Joe Sandilands Murder Mysteries)

Ragtime in Simla  - Barbara Cleverly This second novel of Barbara Cleverly, featuring Commander Joe Sandilands delivered quite an intriguing and twisted mystery with a pretty good gallery of characters, well fleshed out (even the secondary characters). All have their little spotlight part. This second novel is better constructed, less out of nowhere twists and turns and delivers a solid mystery with an exotic and lush background that you can almost smell and touch. Looking forward to the next one : The Damascened Blade.
