Description
When the elderly father of a top Pakistani cricketer playing in a new multimillion-dollar cricket league dies frothing at the mouth during a post-match dinner, it soon becomes clear that his butter chicken has been poisoned, in this third novel in the series by the author of The Man Who Died Laughing and The Case of the Missing Servant. To solve the case, Vish Puri must penetrate the region's organized crime, following a trail that leads deep into Pakistan—the country in which many members of his 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 person in the world with whom he has sworn never to work—his Mummy-ji.

"These books are little gems. They are beautifully written, amusing, and intensely readable."—Alexander McCall Smith
