“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


Murder is no laughing matter. Yet a prominent Indian scientist dies in a fit of giggles when a Hindu goddess appears from a mist and plunges a sword into his chest. Vish Puri, Private Investigator, doesnt believe the murder is a supernatural occurrence, and proving who really killed Dr. Suresh Jha will require all of the detectives earthly faculties.
