The Last Kashmiri Rose by Barbara Cleverly

The Last Kashmiri rose

This is the first book in the “murder and mystery in the final days of the Raj” series and was suggested to me by a friend who knew I enjoyed murder mysteries set in other times. Though far too wordy for a quick read, the book was rich in detail about India in “colonial” times (near the fall of the British Empire in the early 1920s). It largely held my attention throughout and the ending was worth any painful slowness in other parts of the book.
