The Murder of the Maharajah
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: January 2007
Duration: 10 hours 17 minutes
In the princely state of Bhopore, India, 1930, a handful of Western visitors comes to the opulent Summer Palace to meet the outrageous Maharajah and his entourage. There they meet the Maharajah's heir, the sensual Porgy, and his English chorus-girl mistress. They meet the enigmatic chief minister, and the aloof British Resident, with his dignified little nine-year-old son. And before long, they also meet sudden death...
Various people in the Palace become suspects, and an imperturbable District Superintendent of Police is called in. But who will he find guilty of the murder of the Maharajah?
"Details about palace life in India, circa 1930, give this mystery a dollop of historical substance and make it fun. British reader Davidson seems to have a lot of fun himself, pulling off a wide array of voices and accents." -KLIATT
