Synopses & Reviews
A New York Times extended list bestseller in hardcover-the sensational sixth book in the national bestselling Pink Carnation series.
Whisked away to nineteenth-century India, Penelope Deveraux plunges into the court intrigues of the Nizam of Hyderabad, where no one is quite what they seem.
