A new "find".

Vish Puri (affectionately known as Chubby by his family and Boss by his employees) is a the owner of Most Private Investigators in Delhi, India.

A prominent Delhi lawyer has been accused of raping and murdering a young maidservant who worked in his house, and Puri has been hired to find the servant and clear his name.

Good characters. Solid plot. Lots of humor. The Indian settings, urban and rural, are vividly evoked.

We have already started reading the next book in the series: THE CASE OF THE MAN WHO DIED LAUGHING.

MemoryWalk: Tony and Naline's greenhouse. Tony is checking out his pepper plants, a maid is approaching with a tea tray, a shot rings out and shatters the glass of the greenhouse. The maid vanishes into thin air and the tea tray clatters to the ground. (#2)
