A mystery package addressed to the ladies of Tupper arrived from Amazon this past week.
Faithful blog follower and my IB buddy Zahra M. happened upon this best-selling butter chicken book recently and--being all too familiar with our fondness for Indian edibles--sent it our way. Zahra, you're awesome.
Enter: Story Time with Kinseep Brockinder,
Kinsey Brockie's Indian alter ego
Long-held secrets, deadly lies, a sports scandal, and a poisoned helping of butter chicken -- all in a day's work for the head of Delhi's Most Private Investigators, in this latest book in the delightful Vish Puri detective series. When the father of a Pakistani star cricket player falls dead during a glamorous India Premier League dinner, clearly it isn't just a case of Delhi Belly. But which of the VIPs at the victim's table is responsible for poisoning the man's butter chicken? And was the victim killed for his involvement with a gambling syndicate that controls cricket's illegal billion-dollar betting industry? The answers seem to lie across the border in Pakistan -- the one country Puri swore he would never set foot in. Or do they? For Puri's beloved Mummy-ji, who has a unique insight into the killing, believes there is much more to this murder than meets the eye. Puri and Mummy-ji's search for the truth will lead them to uncover decades-old secrets and tragedies thought best forgotten in their most compelling case yet.Let's hope the book doesn't give us food poisoning.
