The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken

A Vish Puri Mystery

  • customer reviews
When an elderly Pakistani visiting India dies frothing at the mouth during a banquet, it’s not a simple case of Delhi Belly. His butter chicken has been poisoned.

Unfortunately it is the one person in the world with whom he has sworn never to work: his Mummy-ji.
