Wonderful storytelling, great acting

I first heard snatches of this drama on the BBC and was intrigued - listening to the whole thing was a gripping experience. A beautifully produced insight into Mumbai life seen from the point of view of a weary, but cliche-less female detective. Ayeesha Menon (sadly her surname is misspelt by Audible here) is a brilliant writer. I'd also recommend her version of A Tale of Two Cities, recently done by the BBC.
