Fascinating investigation of the local British tea factory owner, a very nasty piece of work, on a shabby plantation with ill-used workers. Once this cruel owner is found dead, Shanti has to walk a fine line with both the man’s friend and his lawyer as he works to solve the murder. A mistreated and frightened wife, a mistreated and dismissed worker, a car chase in a Daimler through the thronged streets of Nuala—all these add to the puzzle amid long-ago local color.
Another amusing touch to this delightful look at life in Ceylon is de Silva’s malapropisms, which his wife gently corrects (“a warning shot across the ship” is corrected to “across the bows, dear.”) With financial intrigue and worker issues to negotiate, and in spite of the interference of the assistant government agent, aptly named Clutterbuck, de Silva slowly and calmly ties everything together and I was left happily looking forward to the next two books in the series.
I think I should stick to reading this series when I'm in the mood for something light and want to just go with the flow.
No apologies are necessary here - this is legitimate literature and I am grateful for it.
