The Pallampur Predicament (Superintendent Le Fanu Mystery Series Book 2)

By Brian Stoddart

Crime & mystery | Paperback, eBook


1920s Madras. Superintendent Le Fanu of the Indian Police Service unravels the death of a local Rajah who turns out to have suspicious links to international gangs. The British and Indian intelligence services become involved, complicating Le Fanu's already fragile relationship with his administration that is increasingly worried by the growth of Indian nationalism. Further complication comes from Le Fanu's on-off relationship with Roisin McPhedren, an Anglo-Indian girl mostly shunned by British Indian society. With his World War I memories still dominant, Le Fanu struggles towards resolution, ably assisted by his Muslim sergeant and a new English recruit.
