The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken: Vish Puri, Most Private Investigator, Book 3 | [Tarquin Hall]

The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken: Vish Puri, Most Private Investigator, Book 3

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.

Publisher's Summary

Dubbed “a wonderfully engaging P.I.” (The Times, London), Tarquin Hall’s irresistible protagonist Vish Puri has become an international favorite through a series that "splendidly evokes the color and bustle of Delhi and the tang of contemporary India" (The Seattle Times). Now the gormandizing, spectacularly mustachioed sleuth finds himself facing down his greatest fears in an explosive case involving the Indian and Pakistani mafias.

    "Sam Dastor is perfect !!"

    Great match for Dastor's narrating skills and this fun mystery book. It's a delightful series, that'll give you some laughs and insight into the culture as well.

    "Love this series, so funny!"
    Any additional comments?

    I just love this series, it is so funny: The characters, the setting, the descriptions of the food, the language and customs all bring the sights smells and sounds of India alive to the listener. Also there are some very real and interesting observations about the dilemmas and difficulties faced by modern Indian society. The narrator is spot on. I can't wait for the next installment!

    "Loved the Complex Back Story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The entire series is great, but book 3 is by far the best. The characters are complex, flawed and lovable. Lots of cultural and historic background related to Delhi, Punjab and India.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken?

    I really like the reading of Mummy Ji's diary.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene at the second cricket match where the killer is exposed.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A quirky detective story in the British tradition set in India, more precisely in Punjab.

    He does a great job with different voices for each character . . . hopefully he'll also read for all future episodes.

    Here's another new P.I. - this time from India.


    Any additional comments?
