    What did you love best about Royal Flush?

    This is the first book I've read by Rhys Bowen and I really enjoyed it. The story was entertaining and the narration was wonderful. I found the book by accident on Audible.com and am now going back to find the earlier books in the series.

    When the elderly father of a top Pakistani cricketer playing in the multi-million-dollar Indian Premier League dies during a post-match dinner, it’s not a simple case of Delhi Belly. His butter chicken has been poisoned. To solve the case, Puri must penetrate the region’s organized crime, following a trail that leads deep into Pakistan - the country in which many members of the P.I.’s family were massacred during the 1947 partition of India. The last piece of the puzzle, however, turns up closer to home when Puri learns of the one person who can identify the killer. Unfortunately it is the one woman in the world with whom he has sworn never to work: his Mummy-ji.

    What did you love best about The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken?

    I really enjoyed all three of the Vish Puri books. They were not action packed but instead an enjoyable look at the life of this engaging detective. The story was a pleasant one and kept my attention and the narrator really made the characters come to life.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tarquin Hall? Why or why not?

    This is the third of the series and I have read all three, enjoying every one of them.


    What does Sam Dastor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It is always nice to listen to a book that may have language, dialects or names that one wouldn't know how to pronounce if just reading. The narrator gave life to each of the characters and I am sure that I would have no idea how to pronounce many of the names included in the stories.


    Any additional comments?

    For me, Vish Puri is a very similar character to Alexander McCall Smith's Precious Ramotswe. Both are noted detectives with pleasant personalities who solve cases through perseverance and common sense. I look forward to any other books in this series.

    Story

    He’s the Man With No Name and the owner of No Alibis, a mystery bookshop in Belfast. But when a detective agency next door goes bust, the agency’s clients start calling into his shop asking him to solve their cases. It’s not as if there’s any danger involved. It’s an easy way to sell books to his gullible customers and Alison, the beautiful girl in the jewellery shop across the road, will surely be impressed. Except she’s not – because she can see the bigger picture.

    Toby says: "Mystery, humor & literary nuances - GREAT"

    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed this series - humorous and dark at the same time. Quirky characters that you can't help but become friends with.


    Which character – as performed by Stephen Armstrong – was your favorite?

    Mystery Man himself was a delight - I wish that there were more than just the three books in the series.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh out loud at times... which could be a bit akward as I walked to and from work. I must have made many passersby wonder just what I was up to!


    Any additional comments?

    If you haven't tried this series - do so! You won't be disappointed.
