For those who love the ancient Roman SPQR series, or Agatha Christie novels, this work will doubtless be very satisfying. Cleverly does a marvelous job evoking the sights, sounds, and smells of India. Her characters are likable and interesting, her setting is rich and vivid (like the SPQR books, complete with authentic period terms) and her pacing and plot are spot on. The story involves the fascinating premise of the mysterious deaths (always in March) of British officers’ wives, all in subtle and seemingly accidental ways. About 3/4 of the way through, the murderer’s identity is revealed, and I started to worry that Cleverly would let me down as a reader. After all, one isn’t supposed to learn the murderer’s identity until the final drawing room confrontation at the very end of the novel! But something about the murderer and his/her crimes was still so shocking and unexpected that the ending was still very rewarding.
What would Keats and Aristotle say? There is great beauty of setting, execution, plot, characters, and pacing in this novel. Other than the moral content weakness, this book is exquisitely entertaining.
