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?

H.R.F. Keating has written numerous novels but he is perhaps most famous for the Inspector Ghote series set in India. He was the crime books reviewer for The Times for fifteen years, has served as Chairman of the CWA and the Society of Authors, and in 1987 was elected President of the Detection Club. He lives in London.From AudioFile:
Essentially a "village" mystery–with the village being the self-contained world of the Bhopore palace–this production has its share of colorful characters: British, Indian and even American. Davidson gives a fully-voiced performance, with especially effective Indian accents. M.A.M. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
