The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken” (341 pages; $24) by Tarquin Hall; published by Simon & Schuster (

The Case of the Deadly Butter ChickenHe’s back! Vish Puri, India’s Most Private Investigator travels deep into Pakistan to solve a murder. After the father of a Pakistani cricketer is poisoned with butter chicken during a post-match dinner, the master of disguise is hired by the Clean Up Cricket organization committed to wiping out match-fixing. The stocky detective attends gangster racketeering galas, takes off on a high-speed car chase, and stakes out a diamond smuggling business. Joining in the excitement with amusing consequences are his undercover detectives: Facecream, Tubelight and Flush. And, of course, his Mummy-ji who likes to conduct her own investigations. After “The Case of the Missing Servant” and “The Case of the Man who Died Laughing,” (we reviewed both books in August 2011 Khaas Baat), Tarquin Hall has written another gem. It leaves us craving for more of the heavy detective’s mysteries. Once again, we are sure the author will indulge us!
