The Times Audiobook of the Week.
Kamil Rahman, disgraced detective-turned-waiter, is about to find himself embroiled in a case that might just change his life...for better or for worse.
Disgraced detective Kamil Rahman moves from Kolkata to London to start afresh as a waiter in an Indian restaurant. But the day he caters a birthday party for his boss's friend on Millionaire's Row, his simple new life becomes rather complicated. The event is a success, the food is delicious, but later that evening the host, Rakesh, is found dead in his swimming pool.
Suspicion falls on Rakesh's new wife, Neha, and Kamil is called to investigate for the family, with the help of his boss's daughter, Anjoli. Kamil and Anjoli prove a capable team - but as the investigation progresses, Kamil struggles to keep memories of the case that destroyed his career in Kolkata at bay...and his past will soon catch up with him in some rather unexpected ways.
"A hugely entertaining first novel, taking us from Kolkata to Brick Lane." (Ann Cleeves)
"A rip-roaring mystery that's engrossing from start to finish...a refreshing and welcome addition to the world of detective fiction. One of my favourite reads of the year." (Abir Mukherjee)

Great story brilliantly narrated
loved the book. The plaiting of two segments really worked to build the layers and maintain the readers attention. Had to try really hard nit just to consume in one go.
The narration was perfect, the range of tones and accents added authenticity often missing in audiobook.
Thank you both.
