Reviews

"Delightful . . . Hall splendidly evokes the color and bustle of Delhi streets and the tang of contemporary India." --Seattle Times, "Best Crime Novels of 2010"
"Hall writes amusing mysteries...[his] affectionate humor is embedded with barbs." --Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
"Modern India, in all its colorful squalor, provides a vivid backdrop for this well-crafted whodunit." --Jean Westmoore, Buffalo News
"Delightful . . . a terrific book with wonderful puzzle plot and a great setting." --The Globe and Mail
"Hall takes the reader into a very Indian, very Delhi web of spirituality, sin, slums, and power broking, but all treated with a veneer of wit and intelligent absurdity." --India Today
"Splendid . . . Entertaining . . . Vish Puri is large, constantly hungry, a perpetual victim of Delhi's traffic congestion, and a wonderfully engaging P.I. . . . A joy to read." --The Times (London)
