9780007413829: Playing with Cobras

It was to be a small and simple task, a matter of two or three days - something Patrick Hyde could do by stopping over in Delhi on his way back to Australia. All he had to do was to make certain that Philip Cass, to whom he owed his life, really had committed murder.

From the Back Cover:

A DEADLY POISON IS AT WORK IN THE HEART OF THE INDIAN STATE...

Patrick Hyde had only a simple task to perform in Delhi – to confirm fellow agent Philip Cass really had murdered the film star wife of an Indian Cabinet Minister. Cass's guilt established, he could be conveniently forgotten by the embarrassed British Government...

But Cass protests his innocence, claiming he's being framed and that the dead woman's husband is a drug-smuggler. Hyde's problem is that he believes Cass – and suddenly nothing is simple any longer...

The drug-smuggler becomes Prime Minister and Cass suspiciously 'disappears'. Hyde finds himself caught up in the most dangerous game of his career: playing with men as deadly as cobras for the highest stakes – the future of India itself...

'When it comes to keeping the story moving and stoking up the excitement, Mr Thomas knows his business'
NEW YORK TIMES

From the Back Cover:

It began as a simple inquiry; had Philip Cass savagely murdered his beautiful mistress, wife of India's soon-to-be Prime Minister, V K Sharmer? Patrick Hyde, ex-SIS agent, owes his life to Cass so he agrees to investigate the case – unofficially. He believes Cass when he says he has been framed – but the truth does not suit anyone else, especially Sharmer, who is hiding several very deadly secrets. When Hyde uncovers them, it's not only his own life he puts in danger because Sharmer does not care how many innocents die to keep him safely in power…

Craig Thomas is in top form in this superbly constructed thriller, building the tension exquisitely to its edge-of-the-seat climax.
