This new series, which features the gentleman sleuth Harith Athreya, is set in remote and picturesque locations in the vast Indian countryside. From the misty Nilgiris to the lofty Himalayas, from serene backwaters to a wooded riverbank in Central India, these books take readers on a virtual tour of the Indian hinterland. With murder and intrigue as accompaniments.
The New York Times: “Athreya is a fine detective with a curious mind, a cool eye for the chance detail, a skill in synthesizing disparate threads and a talent for resisting the insults of the requisite police officer assigned to the case.”
The Sunday Times (UK): “. . . endowing Athreya with an omniscience rarely seen in today’s jaded detectives.”
The Guardian (UK): “Athreya . . . the sort of brilliant detective who is a joy to watch piecing together the answers.”
CrimeReads: “Readers who crave the fair play puzzling of a traditional mystery mixed in with some armchair travel will be richly rewarded.”
