Love, intrigue, and death ensue when a statue of a Hindu god is stolen from an Indian hotel in this masterwork from a New York Times -bestselling author. Sydney Cromartie is aghast when London officials inform him that his precious statuette of the Hindu god Shiva is in fact an artifact stolen from India, its mother country. But, despite the insistence of the Indian government, the irate Canadian art collector will not give it up without a legal fight. English barrister Michael Dean is thrilled to be assigned to a case that will allow him to return to his native India. Arriving at Patna Hall--the quaint seaside hotel on the Coromandel coast where the theft allegedly took place--he quickly launches into his investigation, casting suspicion on everyone, including the inn's vivacious Anglo-Indian proprietress, Auntie Sanni. But there are complexities Dean never anticipated--and one very serious distraction: his emerging feelings for a mysterious archaeologist. Still, he must remain resolute, even if the facts he's at risk of uncovering could lead to disappointment, disillusionment, even tragedy. In her final novel, award-winning author Rumer Godden returns to southern India and the charming beachfront resort that was the site of her popular Coromandel Sea Change. Based on a real late twentieth-century incident--when a Hindu god became, in essence, the plaintiff in a sensational legal case-- Cromartie vs. the God Shiva is an unforgettable tale from a writer of "depth and sensitivity" (Los Angeles Times) and "a novelist of many gifts" (The Daily Telegraph). This ebook features an illustrated biography of the author including rare images from the Rumer Godden Literary Estate.
