A review of Tarquin Hall’s ‘The Case of The Missing Servant’

Your Weekend Reading List

This week, Aparna Jain, planning associate at Rediffusion Y&R, tells Campaign India why she highly recommends Tarquin Hall’s ‘The Case of The Missing Servant’:

“Tarquin Hall’s ‘The Case of the Missing Servant’ is the first of a series of humorous, crime novels in which Vish Puri (or ‘Chubby’ as he is called lovingly at home) is the pakora-devouring, whisky- chugging, larger than life 51 year old Punjabi private investigator who hates being compared to Sherlock Holmes. After all, it was Chanakya who established the art of espionage, says Puri. While Puri gets most of his business from screening prospective brides and grooms, the murder of a public litigator’s maidservant sets the pace of this novel. With a light-hearted take on the changing times we live in rolled together with comic characters like ‘Mummy-ji’ and a vivid description of Delhi that will transport you instantly, this is as easy a read as it is unputdownable.”
