The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall
The Case of the Missing Servant by Tarquin Hall is a charming and entertaining mystery full of a variety of distinctive characters. He shows the class differences in contemporary India, the confusing legal system, and the erratic transportation and communication systems of Delhi in the most humorous situations. Vish Puri is the private investigator attempting to solve the case of a missing maidservant who is believed to be a victim of murder. He and his team of undercover operatives find themselves trying to find the missing girl with no information to go on but rumors and gossip. This book was simply a lot of fun to read. I look forward to reading his next mystery, The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing.
