    I jumped all over this one. I love India Black and this was the perfect little story to tide me over until the 3rd book is released.

    I was a little surprised at India at first. She seemed a little smitten with Philip. Her actions were a little odd to me. She never acts this way with French in later books, and I'm convinced she's head over heels for him. But, in true India fashion she manages to prove that she can best any man.

    I loved the storyline and greatly appreciated learning how she was able to open her own house. I love that she owns a brothel and has so much confidence her own abilities. She runs a successful business in a time that women very rarely did such a thing. She's also earned respect, which I think would be very hard to do in her profession.

    Very much look forward to the next book in the series!

    India Black goes undercover in this short story that is a prequel to the rest of stories.




    India is working for Mother Moore and she has become to favorite to many gents. When one of her favorites asks for her assistance she just can’t turn him down. She accompanies him on a week long trip to the country where he will meet with a wealthy American. He hopes India’s special talents will get him to agree the the business deal he has in mind.   She is surprised to learn the American is in possession of the Rajah’s Ruby. She is even more surprised when the ruby disappears at the same time as her favorite gent.









    I love this series and really enjoyed this novella that gives us more of India’s background and how she came to be the madam of Lotus House.  India Black is a unique character and Carol Carr fleshes her out for us wonderfully.  Before this series I was not much of a fan of historical mysteries but this author writes in a way that takes us right there in the moment. The last installment of this series, India Black and the Widow of Windsor, made by Best of 2011 list for a very good reason. All of these stories are excellent.




    If this series is new to you this is the perfect time to read it. Start with this short story and then continue with India Black  and India Black and the Widow of Windsor. India Black and the Shadows of Anarchy hits stores February 5, 2013. You will not be disappointed.

    India Black and the Rajah¿s Ruby a novella is a little appetizer

    India Black and the Rajah’s Ruby a novella is a little appetizer from Carol K. Carr, due for release on December 31, 2012. As a fan of Carr's India Black historical mystery series, I loved this...such fun and it gives you a peek into India’s past, including just how she came to buy Lotus House. I know I have often wondered about India’s past, haven’t you? Fans will just have to read it to find out. In short format you still get it all, the humor, the Victorian flavor, and a great little romp of a story. You also get a preview of the next full length India Black novel, India Black and the Shadows of Anarchy, due for release in February 2013, from Berkley Prime Crime.


    If you've never read an India Black novel, do start at the beginning with India Black A Madam of Espionage, followed by India Black and the Widow of Windsor.


    I would like to thanks Carol, her publishers and Net Gallery for my review copy.

    A great prequel

    I learned about India Black from the blog "Random Jottings from a Book and Opera Lover" and she has yet to steer me wrong. I love historical mysteries, and this prequel to the India Black series is a great introduction. The twist is not obvious and this novella is a nice introduction to a smart lady.
