From prolific pulp-writer Talbot Mundy, author of "King of the Khyber Rifles" and the Jimgrim series, comes a tale of romance set in pre-Independence India: American Lynn Harding, along with her widowed aunt, are vacationing in India as guests of the Maharanee and Maharajah of Kadur. Lynn soon finds herself pursued by two men: British Captain of Engineers Carl Norwood and Prince Rundhia, the heir of the throne of Kadur. While both vie for Lynn's affections, political disputes and culture clashes loom on the horizon. Published in the UK as "Diamonds See in the Dark"
