    Description
    Meet Vish Puri, India's most private investigator. Portly, persistent and unmistakeably Punjabi, he cuts a determined swathe through modern India's swindlers, cheats and murderers. In hot and dusty Delhi, where call centres and malls are changing the ancient fabric of Indian life, Puri's main work comes from screening prospective marriage partners, a job once the preserve of aunties and family priests. But when a dish of deadly butter chicken is served at a cricket match, with terrible consequences, it takes all of Puri's resources to investigate. With his team of undercover operatives, Puri ingeniously combines modern techniques with principles of detection established in India more than two thousand years ago - long before 'that Johnny-come-lately' Sherlock Holmes donned his Deerstalker. Puri's adventures reveal modern India in all its seething complexity.
