The Reluctant Detective (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.98

The Reluctant Detective is about a typical Mumbai suburban housewife bored with the routine life, looking for a purpose in life beyond shopping and kitty lunches. Through the book, the author sends a message to her readers that one must not get involved in matters beyond his/her limits.

Summary Of The Book

Kay, or Kanan Mehra, is a suburban housewife of about 30 years of age. She is a young mother, who is very curious about things that she should be avoiding at any cost. When she finds a couple of quick successive murders taking place in her neighborhood, her curiosity gets the better of her and she makes a team with Runa, her nosy neighbour and detective friend, in an attempt to find the murderers. The story also has a hilarious overtone. The author also tries to convey a message through her book: one should involve in the matters of others, especially those that are not in his/her line of duty.

Through The Reluctant Detective, the author Kiran Manral attempts to capture the suburban lifestyle lead by a mother and a wife in Mumbai.

The book received mixed reviews from its readers.
