June 2010 Indie Next List
“Vish Puri, master of disguise and lover of all things spicy, does not believe that Dr. Suresh Jha's death was brought about by supernatural powers. While he sets his team of operatives--Facecream, Tubelight, and Flush--off to investigate, he tries to ignore the fact that his wife and mother are investigating their own crime. The second book in this series set in India is a hoot!”
— Doris Blechman, Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, IL
