    Meet Vish Puri, India’s most private investigator. Portly, persistent and unmistakably 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

    What made the experience of listening to The Case of the Missing Servant the most enjoyable?

    I loved the whole story about Vish Puri and his operatives - such an insight into India and how people live. The narrator Sam Dastor was excellent bringing Vish to life.


    What was most disappointing about Tarquin Hall’s story?

    Not one bit of it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No favourite scene - just loved the whole book.


    If you could rename The Case of the Missing Servant, what would you call it?

    No rename is necessary.


    Any additional comments?

    Am hoping I will be able to download his second book soon - unfortunately being Australian based it's not yet available for me. His third book in the series is due in July 2012 and I can't wait to get hold of it.

    Angel Tungaraza has recently moved to Rwanda from her native Tanzania. Although she has her husband Pius and the five orphaned children of their late son and daughter to look after, she still finds time for her small business, baking individually designed cakes for the celebrations of her neighbours and their friends. Entirely aware that many of the people around her have witnessed and survived horrors she can barely imagine, Angel also knows that their lives continue, and they still find reasons for joy and celebration.

    Where does Baking Cakes in Kigali rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up there with the best of them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The diverse characters, the setting, daily life in Rwanda for an ex-pat Tanzanian, the slightly quirky story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No particular scene but I'd love to see what Angel's cakes really look like.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm hoping Gaile Parkin will follow up with a second book about Angel, her family and friends - it can't come too soon.
