Title: Death To The Landlords
Author: Ellis Peters
Description: Lamdlords the world over are not the most popular people, and there is little mourning when the greedy, ruthless Mahendralal Bakhle is blwn up in his boat on the beautiful Periyar Lake. Suspicion falls on the boat-boy who died with him, but Dominic Felse, one of a party of young tourists accidentially involved in the fatality, is not convinced of the boy's guilt. And when they move on it seems that the terror is pursuing them.
Violence and death erupt yet again in the home of a very different landowner, where Dominic and his friends are guests, and follow them relentlessly south to the very tip of India, where Dominic and the Swami Premanathanand, a man of peace, unravel a deadly Indian rope trick of hatred and murder.
