Booklist Review

From the day a trio of Indian fakirs appears before Dee Carmichael and her family, nothing in her world is ever again quite as it appears, almost as if the people she meets and the circumstances she encounters are as illusory as the fabled Indian rope trick. In this sequel to A Bombay Affair (2000) and The Send-Off (2001), McNeill puts her intrepid journalist-cum-social-butterfly heroine at the center of a swirl of smugglers, spies, and swindlers in a story that's as much mystery as romance. As a stringer for a London newspaper, Dee is often in peril as her press pass brings her in contact with a bungling gold smuggler, a bumbling government official, a hard-hearted newspaper man, and a tenderhearted newspaper woman who falls in love with an unorthodox cargo pilot caught up in Bombay's unsavory underworld. Rich travelogue details of India's culture and customs add to the intrigue and glamour as McNeill spins an intricate, incisive, and incandescent tale. --Carol Haggas
