Publisher's Summary

When young Sarah Parrish takes a skiing vacation to Gulmarg, a resort nestled in the mountains above the fabled Vale of Kashmir, she anticipates an entertaining but uneventful stay. But when she discovers that the deaths of two in her party are the result of foul play, she finds herself entrusted with a mission of unforeseen importance. And when she leaves the ski slopes for the Waterwitch, a private houseboat on the placid shores of the Dal Lake near Srinagar, she discovers to her horror that the killer will stop at nothing to prevent Sarah from piecing the puzzle together.

The wrong Narrator

What would have made Death in Kashmir better?

The narrator has a plesant voice but no range. No character has a distinct voice. Men and women all sound the same which makes for a boring listen. I read M.M. Kaye's Death in mystery series and know them to be an exciting series. This narrator just put me to sleep.

What didn’t you like about Shibani Ghosh’s performance?

She was unable to create distinct characters. I think the best narrators are good actors who create and project a range of personalities.

Let down for M M kaye lovers

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No! Wonderful book

What other book might you compare Death in Kashmir to and why?

M M kaye's mysteries have the charm of Daphne Du Maurier and the fun of Agatha Christie

Would you be willing to try another one of Shibani Ghosh’s performances?


Was Death in Kashmir worth the listening time?

It was not,but only because the reader literally buthchered it.I asked audible to please try and get these mysteries. A death in Berlin and Zanzibar are worth a listen.I will try all they get of the wonderful M M Kaye.Her biographies would be a welcome as well. These books are meant to be read by a cultured British voice. They were read in the 90's by Virginia Mckenna to great effect. They are all about British colonialism. The heroines are British. The main characters are British not Hindi . Ms Ghosh might be fine reading a book from an Indian's perspective.
