Downward facing death... Blessed with uncanny deductive skills and a blasé disregard for authority, Matt Bolster was a rising LAPD homicide detective by the age of 35. He was also overworked, near-alcoholic, and miserable. Then, to impress a girl, he agreed to try yoga. And with a single savasana, everything changed. Now Bolster has traded his badge for a three-day stubble and the life of an itinerant yoga teacher, dabbling in PI work to make rent. He mostly handles missing-persons cases, credit-card fraud - nothing too messy. But that's before Ajoy Chaterjee, the wealthy mogul behind one of the world's leading yoga-business empires, is found murdered inside his West L.A. flagship studio. Bolster knows the LAPD doesn't have a prayer of cracking the secrets of the yoga world. But he does, and he really needs the dough. Of course, sticking to the principles of the yamas and niyamas during a murder investigation isn't easy, especially with so many alluring women among the suspects. But personal ethics will be the least of Bolster's problems if the killer finds him first.

In the yoga satire mystery genre this one is tops.
Matt Bolster, the perfect name. Hard-boiled PI yogi.
Narrator was great. Loved them all.
If you love yoga and humor Neal Pollack nailed both. The insider jokes were right on. To write satire like this you have to love what you're making fun of, and I have no doubt Pollack does. Though now not too many teachers or students would want to be in class with him. ;)
I am an artist, lover of books. Love reading or listening to a good book. I live on the East Coast of Canada with an awesome ocean view.
Where to begin, this book is so poorly written couldn't get past the second chapter.
Not written it in the first place.
He sounded like he appreciated the book as much as I did.
