    British India. The summer of 1942. Bombay. From the leafy lanes of Wodehouse Road, a British woman goes missing from her home. Her husband Thomas Stanton, wants to keep the police out of the loop, and thus calls in Bombays first Private Detective, Barnabas Mehta. Barnabas, the son of a cook, has been brought up under the tutelage of his fathers employer, Francis Curtis, and thus knows the ways of the British. But that isnt enough to solve the mystery for him. His search for Rose leads him to the bylanes of Girgaum where he finds a murder to solve and webs of deceit to traverse. Who would murder Rose so brutally? Family secrets and the machinations of an evil mind theyre all there for Barnabas Mehta to unveil!

    Worst

    If it was possible I could have given 0 stars. The flow of story is so bad that I stopped reading this book after 11 pages. I don't know what the writer was trying to show whether she has a very good knowledge of English or whatever. this book just SUCKS and It Sucks really hard.

    A very good book

    As far as the genre goes, the writer has done full justice to the story. A very good blend of situation and twists that keeps the reader hooked up to the book.A must read for every thriller fan. Besides the simple language, its in itself a very good read due to the unique story line. One among those books that wont bore you even if you are reading for the tenth time
