Publisher's Summary

Events that took place on the Northwest Frontier of India in 1910 are resurrected for Joe Sandilands 12 years later.
On a welcome break from his duties, he is spending a fortnight with his old army friend James Lindsay, commander of the British army's fort at Gor Khatri on the Afghan border. There is an uneasy peace in operation, but into the delicate situation is injected an ill-assorted group of visitors.
After a skirmish that results in the death of a Pathan prince and the taking of hostages, Joe and James are given a week in which to find the killer. Otherwise the frontier is likely to erupt into war. Drawing on all his skills, Joe sets out to find the murderer.

Adventure and murder mystery set during the British Raij

If you enjoy a classic who dune it, with just the right amount of old time serial adventure rolled in, set during the British Raij, then this is the book for you. To paraphrase the main character, " a jolly good show all around!"

Excellent Historical Whodunnit!

I had been looking for an author similar to Charles Todd. Many that I tried had a heavy romance aspect which is not my thing. Others were historically inaccurate, didn't ring true, or were boring. Barbara Cleverly is a spellbinding storyteller. Her grasp of time and place is assured and accurate. The Damascened Blade is highly recommended - a fabulous tale.
