Well written page turner.
Mystery/suspense about who travels to India on a quest for his murdered Indian neighbors. It provides a glimpse of modern India with its rush to become a technologically advanced country versus the traditional culture with a large portion of the population living in great poverty.

This book is a cute, really light read. If that's what you're searching for this is just perfect!
