CURSE OF THE COBRA is an exciting murder mystery set in modern India crammed with foreign intrigue, colorful characters and hair-raising adventure.
Father “Raff” Rafferty, a former NYPD cop now turned Catholic priest, has been assigned by his bishop to an orphan girls mission school in India from which a pair of young girls and the nun principal have mysteriously disappeared. Complications arise at a sacred Hindu ceremony in which a statue of the god Shiva, whose third eye is the world’s largest ruby, is ritually bathed in the sacred lake by a revered holy man. When the holy man is murdered and the ruby stolen during the ceremony, Raff promises the beleaguered Maharajah that he will search for the holy man’s killer, recover the ruby and find the missing girls.
