The story is very gripping and full of detail. The plump detective, Vish Pury, takes us inside modern Indian society for a glimpse of the exotic, charming, complex and sometimes corrupt underbelly of the society and culture. As all good story tellers, Hall keeps you enthralled right to the end. The narrator is so well chosen too.
