Hi members,

We'll utilise this thread to discuss the August BOTM (Dead in a Mumbai Minute) on this thread. Please do make sure that you have read the rules beforehand.

Looking forward to your enthusiastic participation!

Blurb:
A private island, a bottle of ridiculously expensive wine, a late-night party hosted by a glamorous diva … for Reema Ray, this is not a taste of the good life -- it’s a matter of life or death.

As a private detective in Calcutta she had impressed maverick security expert Shayak Gupta with her sleuthing skills, leading to a new job with his firm Titanium. Now in Mumbai she is given the case of the year – the murder of Ashutosh Dhingre, former assistant to fading Bollywood superstar Kimaaya Kapoor.

The location of the crime is Kimaaya’s private island. The suspects – her house guests, and Kimaaya herself!

Reema learns of Kimaaya’s prior relationship with Shayak, and can’t help but think it is a conflict of interest. Equally puzzling is Shayak’s repeated absence. And what of the continuing attraction simmering between her and her secretive boss?

Despite the state-of-the-art facilities at Titanium, Reema is soon back to her own devices – which sometimes involves cooking up something for a spot of culinary meditation – to get to the bottom of a crime that points to a deep and sinister plot.

As the body count increases, can Reema crack the case before more blood is spilled?

Indrani will be leading the discussions. I may not be active for this month's read due to family commitments, but I'll peek into this thread often! :-)

Happy reading :)

I have started with this, finished a few pages and have liked it so far - reading for the first time of a Bollywood star who has purchased a private island (does this really happen though?).. Like the equation between Reema and Shayak.

I wanted to clarify though - can this be read as a standalone (because it is the second book in the series) or is it continuation from the first book?

The Reema and Sayak saga continues from the first book. But I think this is definitely a stand-alone. The mystery has no connection to the one in book one.

All right, thanks Indrani. I'm progressing quite slowly with this one as I've barely got any time to read this week :-( I'm reading through Reema's first day at work and am getting goose pimples conjuring up hers and Shayak's introductory scene :D :D
