The Case of the Love Commandos

by Tarquin Hall - £9.99  Cornerstone (Arrow Books Ltd) (2014)

The wonderful fourth outing for Delhi detective Vish Puri ('the Indian Hercule Poirot' Financial Times).
 
When Indias Love Commandos rescue a young woman from a high-caste family who has been forbidden from marrying an untouchable, she looks set to live happily ever after with the man she truly loves. But just hours before the wedding, her boyfriend, Ram, is abducted. Has his would-be father-in-law made good on his promise and done away with him?
 
It falls to Vish Puri to find out. Unfortunately, hes not having a good month. He cant locate a haul of stolen jewellery. Hes been pickpocketed. And the only person who can get his wallet back is his interfering Mummy-ji.
 
Things only get worse when he discovers that his arch-rival, Hari Kumar, is also trying to locate the abducted boy as is a genetics research institute exploiting illiterate villagers.
 
To find Ram first, Puri and his team must travel into the badlands of rural India where the local politics are shaped by millennia-old caste prejudices.
