This is the first book in a new series featuring Vish Puri, head of Delhi, India’s “Most Private Investigators.” A colorful, appealing cast of family and employees help Vish Puri, know to his family and friends as “Chubby,” solve this case. With a strong sense of place, the plot takes us to different locales in India and also works in some of the problems and social issues of the world’s largest democracy. I listened to the book on CD and the narrator was terrific, using Indian-accented English and appropriate voices for the various characters. If you enjoy Alexander McCall Smith’s novels, try this one, it’s a winner.
