review The Damascened Blade

review The Damascened Blade The Damascened Blade Free download Ö 4 This rescue attempt is not what anybody could have predicted Over a dozen years later the backwash of this tragedy threatens to engulf Joe Sandilands On a welcome break from his policing duties Joe is spending a fortnight with his old army friend James Lindsay commander of the British army's front line fort at Gor Khatri on the Afghan border However the fra. The time is 1910 the place is India s North Western Frontier although strictly speaking under 21st century geography we d now call that the Pakistan Afghanistan border It s a wild and isolated place peopled by dangerous tribesmen who have traditions of honour that are alien to western minds When a small group of military men from the Highlanders are attacked by Pathan tribesmen the order is given to pull out to leave the dead and bring out the wounded And if the wounded can t be rescued then don t leave them to the assault of their merciless attackers One man falls into a ravine and is left behind A young soldier disobeys the order to retreat and heads back to help his comrade who is being tortured He kills the man s torturers and then does what he knows he must He puts the man out of his agony with a bullet to the head And thenwell then you can sit back for another 280 pages of Barbara Cleverly s book The Damascened Blade before you ll finally understand what that was all about and how it s connected to the plot that followsTwelve years later at the isolated fort of Gor Khatri commander James Lindsay is waiting for a convoy of visitors With him is his old friend Joe Sandilands a British police officer on secondment from Scotland Yard Joe has been asked to take care of or as he sees it probably to babysit a young American heiress called Lily Lily has come to India in search of adventure and she s determined to have it Joe is interested in keeping her safe and out of troubleLily is not the only visitor travelling to the fort There s Dr Grace Holbrook en route to an assignment as the personal physician of the Amir of Afghanistan She s a remarkable woman speaking the local languages at home with both the Brits and the locals she s a real one of a kind pioneer Not uite so well suited to the trip is Sir Edwin Burroughs a boorish senior Indian civil servant on a fact finding mission to investigate whether British resources are being wisely invested in defending the border Lord Rath is the Chairman of West India Trading and he wants to go to Afghanistan and work out how to fill their markets with British goods The final visitor heading to the fort is Fred Moore Simpson of the RAF who wants to examine the prospects for using aircraft to patrol the frontier The final visitor is one James is looking forward to seeing his heavily pregnant wife BettyWaiting at the fort are two local men Zeman and Iskander envoys of the Amir travelling with a large group of armed escorts They are charged with the task of meeting up with Dr Grace and taking her safely to the Amir and as such they are also to be treated as honoured guests A big dinner is thrown for all the visitors and the next morning Zeman is found dead When Iskander refuses to accept the findings of Dr Grace s hasty autopsy he takes matters into his own hands Unless James can deliver to him his friend s killer by the end of the week Iskander will kill one of the group at the fort And James as the man in charge is all set to put himself literally in the firing line if he and Joe can t identify the killerI am fascinated by India and I read all sorts of novels by Indian writers or set in India I also enjoy the odd crime novel though if I m honest my crime reading leans towards high tech state of the art forensics rather than bumbling old style sleuthing so I was stepping out of my usual genre rather with The Damascened Blade However the location than made up for the reservations I had about historical crime fiction The North West Frontier is a fascinating area and I wanted to know about the place about the traditions of the tribal groups and the issues Cleverly touches on relating to honour and revenge She brings alive the barren and inhospitable craggy landscape beautifully as well as introducing the colourful world of the harem and the privileged by restricted life of the royal women Whilst I wouldn t have wanted to be there with the characters I did feel as if she d taken me there alongside themIn Joe I found a slightly bumbling sleuth one who seemed as clueless as I was right up to very near the end when he almost seemed to stumble across the truth In James and Betty we find the sweet young couple separated by duty and his first love the Army The contrast between Burroughs and Rath displayed the conflict between civil service and trade the challenge of keeping costs under control on one side and the urge to expand a trade empire whilst others worry over a geographic power base The RAF man represents the onward march of technology and the lady doctor and Lily the changing roles of women in the empire As the lone American Lily is almost as much a foreigner as the local tribesmen and represents a feisty Annie Oakley approach to frontier life and its challengesWhen reading crime fiction I like to know that if I pay attention it will all make sense eventually I don t want to guess too early who the killer or killers might be or I feel cheated Eually I don t want to get to the end and think it wouldn t have been possible in a zillion years to have guessed The Damascened Blade kept me guessing almost to the end and when the truth was finally revealed it all slotted into place tying in the opening chapter with the death of the man in the ravine and finally giving a reason for all that follows Is it the most complex and twisting plot I ve ever read No it s not but it s good enough I was there for the mountains the colour and flavour of the frontier as well as a good dose of days of the Raj politics and power play and
