The 2nd novel in the Inspector Sam Blackstone Series:
A series of kidnappings seemed like straightforward, run-of-the-mill crimes at first, but Inspector Sam Blackstone soon realizes they are anything but.
When the son of the visiting Maharajah of Chandrapore - known to all as the Tiger - is taken in a full-on ambush, Blackstone realises that the previous kidnappings were just practice for a plot that impacts not only Britain, but its whole Empire.
Blackstone finds himself caught up in a game of cat and mouse, frantically trying to pin down the loose threads to find the lost prince before it’s too late. But with the criminals always appearing to be one step ahead of the Inspector, he begins to suspect that the threat is closer to home than he previously thought . . .

Great Review of A Murder of No Consequence
By Eager Reader: I am writing this review having read all three of this author's civil war novels, as well as the three Inspector Woodend/Inspector Monika Paniatowski British mysteries that overlap events in Spain, utilizing the wonderful character of detective Paco Ruiz, first introduced in "A Murder of No Consequence."
Of all Spencer's books I've read, my favorites were this one and the last of the six ("Death's Dark Shadow").
The author has not only lived in Spain, as stated, but must have experienced it to a degree most British transplants do not. ... Spencer KNOWS Spain, with an outstanding grasp of the events surrounding the Civil War--pre, during, and post.
He writes with delightful fluidity. His characters are influenced by history and culture, but they are also well developed to drive the plot.
I had just begun my exploration into Kindle Unlimited books, and I must say how astonished I am to find such a serious yet fun, scholarly yet sensitive novel that costs nothing other than a number of fulfilling hours of reading time.
