Overview

A sampler from each title in Hall’s fun, exotic, mystery series, about which Andrew McCall Smith says, “These books are little gems. They are beautifully written, amusing, and intensely readable.”

An honest public litigator is accused of murdering his maidservant in The Case of the Missing Servant; the Hindu goddess Kali comes down to earth and murders a laughing scientist in The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing; and the father of the most prominent cricket player in India dies at a feast in The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken.

    Enjoyable introduction

    Nice way to get a taste of this unique cast of characters and colorful setting in India. Weaves the sights and experiences of busy Delhi into the action of the Most Private investigators. Fun!

    Great series

    Fun to have at least partial Vish Puri books on my Nook, when I don't have access to my paper books!
