Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In Hall’s thought-provoking and charming fourth mystery featuring PI Vish Puri a young Delhi couple’s plan to marry runs afoul of the bride’s powerful father, who objects to his future son-in-law’s low caste…This series has dealt with progressively more serious topics, but Hall, the author of Salaam Brick Lane and two other works of nonfiction, hasn’t lost his light touch.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Vish Puri of Delhi, head of Most Private Investigators, Ltd., is regarded by many (and himself) as the best private eye in India…As in any Puri novel, a great deal of humor about Puri’s family life is mixed with skillful plotting and realistic descriptions of contemporary India’s overflowing street life.” Booklist (starred review)
“Once again, India’s Most Private Investigator solves his case with panache.” Kirkus Reviews
“Vish Puri becomes embroiled in a modern-day Romeo and Juliet story set in India. As she is wont to do, his mother helps investigates in her own inimitable style. Do try Hall’s fourth entry in his charming and gently humorous series.” Library Journal
