When the India Office seek help in finding Maharajah Narayan, last seen hunting on the Bolton Abbey estate, they call upon the expertise of renowned amateur detective Kate Shackleton to investigate. But soon a missing persons case turns to murder. Shot through the heart, Narayan's body has obviously not been in the woods overnight. Who brought it here, and from where? And what has happened to the hugely valuable diamond that was in the Maharajah's possession? An inexplicable murder ... As Kate digs deeper, she soon discovers that vengeance takes many forms. Was the Maharajah's sacrilegious act of shooting a white doe to blame? Or are growing rumors of a political motive too powerful for Kate to discount? One thing Kate is sure of: her own skills and insights. Qualities that she is sure will help her unravel a mysterious murder on that fateful summer's day.

"The thrill of autobiography is in its "character." We hope to have introduced into our lives a life we've never met, a life of difference-that whatever we may think of this stranger, we emerge the better for hearing his or her story. Robert Klassen is a stranger I urge you to meet. He will not be a total stranger to many, for his books and ideas have introduced us to a new paradigm for the future. But just wait until you meet the author as a person. Survival is his challenge. How he does it is his gift to us." -Joe Taylor Ford, author of Zodiac Manager
