This historical fiction brings together all the famous literary heroes and villains of the 20th century under one roof, in the most unexpected of settings – Delhi, 1911 for the epoch-making Coronation Durbar of King George the Fifth.
The characters include: the detective duo Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson, sent by Winston Churchill to protect the king; two popular gentlemen thieves, Arsène Lupin and Raffles, who have crossed swords with Holmes before; the mysterious Dr Fu Manchu, dreaded by the British; Mikhail Strogoff, the Tsar’s special courier; and Tarzan and Karzan, the viceroy of apes.
This racy, humorous novel on the secret history of the Coronation Durbar will take the readers on an unforgettable walk back in time. It has a political sub-text, and cultural studies over-tones.
The book would appeal to all Sherlock Holmes fans.
The author has done intensive research on historical facts, especially the politics of India, UK, France and China in the beginning of 20th century, that have been used as a backdrop for fictional happenings.
The writing is good, comes from a seasoned author , and uses well-researched French, British, American and even Chinese style in parts. A watertight plot.
