#UK0052 $27.95 $22.36

Lush with historical and geographical details of 1830s India, this novel from highly lauded historian and biographer M. J. Carter is exotic, enthralling, and immediately real. The rip-roaring thriller begins with a troubling disappearance. The popular but controversial British poet named Mountstuart was last seen in an East India Company departmental office responsible for eradicating a large band of murderous criminals known as "Thuggees." William Avery, a young soldier in the East India Company, is paired with Jeremiah Blake, a disenchanted ex-Company man and an old acquaintance of Mountstuart's, and the unlikely investigative duo is officially charged with finding the vanished poet. The Strangler Vine is a gripping detective adventure and a thought-provoking contemplation about the dark side of colonialism. (CH)
