Scotland Yard Detective Joe Sandilands is caught off guard one night in 1933 by a phone call from a distressed boy named Jackie Drummond, who just might be the illegitimate son Joe never knew he had. Jackie is in trouble at his Sussex boarding school, where a teacher has been murdered. When Joe gets himself assigned to the investigation, he learns the boarding school case is more complicated than it appears: A frightening number of boys, all from wealthy families, have gone missing over the school’s history, and by some coincidence none of the families have followed up on their sons’ whereabouts.

Quotes & Awards

  • “One of Cleverly’s very cleverest puzzles…Clevery is a terrific writer, and she’s also wonderful at setting a scene…She supplies the glamour as well as the grime, and she’s one of the most adept puzzle-plot-makers now working. The clues are all there. But you won’t guess who it is until she gives you the final word.”

    Globe and Mail (Toronto)

  • “Intricate, erudite, and witty…Cleverly is a terrific plotter, and her prose highlights a keen sense of place, character, and dialogue…Fans of P. D. James, take note: Here’s a worthy colleague.”

    Seattle Times

  • “Cleverly has perfect pitch for period and place, whether the hero is unearthing evil in India, England, or France.”

    Richmond Times-Dispatch

  • “In this puzzling, haunting mystery…narrator Simon Prebble is charming yet stern. His British accent is perfect for this brooding tale. Prebble’s character interpretations are subtle, yet accurate and believable; his acting chops and colorful pallet of tones and voices are on display from the get-go.”

    Publishers Weekly (audio review)

  • “Suspenseful…makes the most of its intriguing setup…The surprisingly horrific truth behind the murder helps to make this one of the better recent installments.”

    Publishers Weekly

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Connie | 2/18/2014

    " This is my first Joe Sandilands mystery, although it's the tenth in the series. I bought The Last Kashmiri Rose 10 years ago and have just now started it. Probably would have enjoyed this book more if I had started at the beginning. The author certainly knows Britain and the time period, 1933, well and the characters are very well drawn. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Rita Marie | 2/13/2014

    " I have enjoyed every one of the 'Joe Sandilands' mysteries, and this latest is even better than the rest. It's 1933, and the story connects up with some of the people and events from 10 years ago in India (but if you haven't read the earlier books, you'll be okay, just enough backstory tidbits are supplied to explain). The usual superb plotting and character development. Anyone who appreciates period mysteries will like this book. "

    " Interesting spin as the book progresses. A bit of history that we sometimes forget happened. "

    " a little disappointed. I love her earlier books in the series. "
