India 1922. When a tiger, turned man-eater, starts terrorising the northern villages of Ranipur, Governor Sir George Jardine dispatches Joe Sandilands, war hero and Scotland Yard detective, to join in a hunt for the beast as the guest of the maharajah. But Joe's suspicions are soon roused about the true nature of his trip.

The maharajah is dying and his succession is unclear. The first heir to the throne has already died in a panther-wrestling incident and a second violent death occurs as Joe approaches the city. Misadventure or intention? In the glittering court, surrounded by scheming characters, Joe must track down a clever murderer, finding his way through a maze of intrigue to corner the Palace Tiger.

    " I obviously should have lived at the time of the British Raj. I can't get enough of the setting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phair | 1/29/2014

    " Nice feel for India and the period with interesting touches of culture & history, architecture, dress, social mores, etc.. A convoluted mix of perps with varied reasons for the killings- some noble & some pure greed. I do like the ambiance of this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lou | 1/20/2014

    " Consistently good series with Joe Sandiland, the early ones set in India are the best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney | 1/17/2014

    " I really enjoyed this one...fun plot twists, interesting to read, and great characters. A fun mystery set in India with lots of intrigue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heidi | 1/8/2014

    " I am very sorry to have read the last book in this series to take place in India. The descriptions of the country and palaces and gardens have me ready to buy my ticket and be off to see what it is like now...sigh...someday! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kay Webb | 1/2/2014

    " began 7 jan 2012;the ending was a bit murky. I really hated that one special character was killed. However, I did enjoy the characters, the setting, and most of the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Sometomato | 12/23/2013

    " I am not sure exactly why, but this story, an early one in the series, was not as enjoyable as the later one I read recently. I think that the storyline became quite confused at parts as the protagonist decided on first one, then another, then another (etc.) villain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 lee | 12/23/2013

    " Tiger paw weapons. Never heard of them before. Also magic drugs. "

    " Joe Sandilands # 4 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 7/1/2013

    " Another in the Joe Sandilands series, set in India in the 1920s. The protagonist is a former military man, now a policeman, who is sent all over India to solve crimes. Yes, the premise is a litle thin, the writing is patchy at times, but the setting is fascinating, and the books are fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhiannon | 3/30/2013

    " Fascinating as usual. What a complicated world 1920s India must have been. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charity | 10/7/2012

    " Enjoyed it before nodding off at night. "

    " boring. I liked others in this series, but this one left me cold. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 7/25/2012

    " It didn't grab me. There was too much busyness, and it seemed that the author would add in character background affecting the outcome at the last minute. "

    " An excellent continuation of the Joe Sandilands series, beautifully twisty. "
