    Description

    When little Pinky Chaddha flunks the nursery entrance exams of Bangalore’s snootiest school, her hyper-ambitious parents hire the one man who can secure her admission – Mr Chatterjee sole proprietor of The Chatterjee Institute of Detection and Crime Fighter for the Common Man. But Sister D’Souza, the school’s headmistress is a Machiavellian adversary and soon Mr Chatterjee is on the run, pursued by villainous policemen with arresting moustaches. To survive, he must uncover the mysterious secret that the Sister has so carefully concealed from prying eyes. Unfortunately, time is not on his side… worse still, his personal assistant, the utterly inept Miss Jolly is…

    About the Author :-

    Nilanjan P. Choudhury’s debut novel Bali and the Ocean of Milk received wide critical acclaim and was a brief best-seller.   This is his second novel and the first adventure in the Chatterjee Institute of Detection series. He confesses to having studied at IIM Ahmedabad and IIT Kanpur and hopes that this will not be held against him. He lives in Bangalore with his wife, a daughter, a mother-in-law, a day job in the IT industry and a home loan. It’s a wonder he manages to write anything at all apart from EMI cheques. He can be reached at www.nilanjan.net

    Another good laugh set in Bangalore

    Nilanjan has done it again. He has shown the ability to laugh at himself, at his characters who seem believable while still being slightly Wodehousian in their ability to make you gasp and at the situations they seem to get themselves in. In this book, Nilanjan has shifted the setting from the ocean of milk, Amaravati and kingdom of the Asuras to Bangalore, no less replete with magical characters. I don’t know if Chatterjee is how Nilanjan sees himself twenty years down the line, once he has ...

    THE FUNNIEST BOOK I READ IN SOMETIME

    What a refreshingly funny and thrilling book! It’s plot is adrenaline-rushing, gritty, rousing and fast-paced, just the way a thriller should be, taking you through unsuspected twist and turns, double chases, masquerades, red herrings, cliffhangers and the works; There’s not a quiet moment. And if you are trying to catch your breath it is because its rip-roaring humour keeps you in splits. Be cautioned though, if you are reading this while waiting for a bus, train or a flight, you are sure t...

    Keep Cool and Don't Lose Your Shirt

    Nilanjan's first book was a rip rollicking irreverent mythological drama. His second book is quite a turn, but stays close to his forte of fiction.
    Mr Chatterjee is a retired widower and decides he wants to become a private detective, and unimaginatively christens his one-man firm the 'Chatterjee Institute of Detection'? The only worthwhile case he gets is that from Mrs Pammi Chaddha, a loud Punjabi - but I repeat myself - who wishes desperately for her daughter, Aisharadhya, to get into the...

    An interesting start

    I was quite glad to see another book by this author. I read the book at a leisurely pace. It's one of those books that you can carry with you anywhere and chill and read. The characters are quirky and unique, so are the situations that arise.
    Quite enjoyable. And it's nice to see a detective series (I hope its a series) come up in India.

    Loved it!

    Fast paced, witty, lucid, gripping, real life characters, even more real problems.. overall a great read! For a non-Kannadiga to have settled in Bangalore, tried hard for kid's admission to those old missionary schools, the same occasional tryst with the Auto drivers, those forever in rush BMTC buses, this story seems so real. A story that you can finish off in flat 2 hours time. Keep them coming Nilanjanda.. :)

    A free flow story line with lots of surprises and and humorous moments.

    All major characters in this book are migrants to Bangalore, which is a true reflection of a modern cosmopolitan city. Thus, they have unique characteristics based on their regional or socio-cultural background. The main character of this book detective Mr. Chatterjee unwillingly took a mission to facilitate nursery admission of a little girl into a reputed convent school in Bangalore. However, there are many dramatic and hilarious moments where both Mr. Chatterjee and Sister D'Souza - the sc...

    Unputdownable fun!

    Having read Nilanjan's first book, this book was a must read for me. Changing course from the mythology, palace intrigue and symbolic overtones of the first book, Nilanjan now presents us with a story of mystery, action and suspense - all wrapped up in the fabric of comedy.

    There is the protagonist, a pot bellied retiree, who intent on killing the boredom of life tries his hand as a private investigator and gets entangled in a near impossible mission, a desperate lady who does not wish to l...

    The Case of the Secretive Sisters

    I must thank my stars that I picked up this book. An absolute readers’ delight, the book kicked off right into a Harry Potter scenario leaving me wondering about what was going to unravel. Nilanjan Choudhury has put together a nice piece interweaving suspense with a dash of humor and has created characters that you can relate to. Mr. Chatterjee seems like your next door retired uncle and Eunice D'Souza is a straight copy of the School Principal.

    The plot and the language ensured that I coul...
