Agatha Christie and Hercule Poriot have met their match, and then some, in Tarquin Hall and his detective, Vish Puri. Vish is smart and trained well by the military for his job as private detective. He faces danger with confidence and aplomb, even when he is forced to go into the country of his worst nightmares - Pakistan. He uses the latest technological aids to solve his crimes, which made it all the more interesting to read. This book was a thrill to read, not only because of the mysteries, danger, and suspense; but because it is full of historical fact with a deep look into Indian culture. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys mystery, suspense, danger, history, or enjoys getting to know people of other cultures.
