"The Temple Dancer is what reading is all about. This book upholds true literature, which is -- the beauty of language. There is a wonderful world here full of enchantment and nourishment."
"Speed conducts a dazzling tour of seventeenth century India. Lavish and lush…mesmerizing…Chock-full of sex, suspense, and peril, this high-voltage adventure yarn will rapidly transport willing readers to vanished time and place. [It] will leave readers craving more."--Booklist
