What reviewers say about Dark Clouds over Nuala:
“Pure enjoyment to read the unfolding of mysteries with happy outcomes set in exotic Ceylon. The good-hearted Shanti is assisted by his capable wife Jane. Together they bring harmony and humour to East meets West. As refreshing as a cup of light Ceylon tea!” Annmarie Wharton
“Didn't want to put it down, brilliantly written detective story set against the backdrop of 1930s colonial Ceylon. The superb characterisation and setting had me captured from the very start. I read in in one day and smiled contentedly when I put it down.” Amazon Customer
“This is the second book in the Inspector De Silva mysteries series and it just felt like coming home. This story is set in Ceylon 1935 in the beautiful and normally tranquil hill town of Nuala. I can imagine sitting out on the veranda sipping iced tea in the sweltering heat but with a constant reminder of the wilder side of Ceylon just over the other side of the high garden fence. Just stunning!” Books from Dusk till Dawn
“Wonderful reads. I have now read the first two books in this series and have enjoyed them immensely. They are easy to read, and yet plot-wise, keep you captivated until the end. The 1930s Ceylonese setting, and its characters are a delight. Highly recommended.” DRG
“A delightful read - can't wait to devour the next one!” JJ McKay
