Synopsis

Solving crimes isn't easy.

Add a flowing sari dress, a jealous mother-in-law and the disapproving glares of Indian high society into the mix, and you've got a problem.



BOOK ONE IN THE BANGALORE DETECTIVES CLUB SERIES



A witty, richly evoked murder mystery set in 1930s India with an unforgettable female sleuth!

_____________________________



Murder and mayhem . . . monsoon season is coming.



When clever, headstrong Kaveri moves to Bangalore to marry handsome young doctor Ramu, she's resigned herself to a quiet life.



But that all changes the night of the party at the Century Club, where she escapes to the garden for some peace - and instead spots an uninvited guest in the shadows. Half an hour later, the party turns into a murder scene.



When a vulnerable woman is connected to the crime, Kaveri becomes determined to save her and launches a private investigation to find the killer, tracing his steps from an illustrious brothel to an Englishman's mansion. She soon finds that sleuthing in a sari isn't as hard as it seems when you have a talent for maths, a head for logic and a doctor for a husband . . .



And she's going to need them all as the case leads her deeper into a hotbed of danger, sedition and intrigue in Bangalore's darkest alleyways . . .



Can Kaveri solve the crime before the next full moon?



*INCLUDES A BONUS CHAPTER OF DELICIOUS INDIAN RECIPES*
