Head of Zeus
Death to the Landlords
Death to the Landlords Ellis Peters
 The Felse Investigations, 11

No case is too strange or too baffling for the policeman George Felse and his son, Dominic. Over 13 instalments and two decades, the Felse Investigations will take them from their home on the Welsh Borders to the southernmost tip of India.

Landlords are never popular, and there is little mourning when the greedy, ruthless Mahendralal Bakhle is blown up on 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 visiting the landlord's game reserve, is not convinced of the boy's guilt. And when the party move on to their next destination, the terror pursues them all the way to the southernmost tip of India.

The police blame local terrorists targeting wealthy landlords, but what would that have to do with a group of innocent tourists? To get to the bottom of this trail of violence, Dominic Felse must unravel a deadly Indian rope trick of hatred and murder.
