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.
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.
This is the third of the series and I have read all three, enjoying every one of them.
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.
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.
I really enjoyed this series - humorous and dark at the same time. Quirky characters that you can't help but become friends with.
Mystery Man himself was a delight - I wish that there were more than just the three books in the series.
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!
If you haven't tried this series - do so! You won't be disappointed.
