A client claiming she was murdered in a past life is a novel dilemma even for Vish Puri, India’s most private investigator. When a young woman comes forward saying she’s the reincarnation of Riya Kaur, a wife and mother who vanished during the bloody 1984 anti-Sikh riots, Puri is dismissive. He’s busy enough dealing with an irate matrimonial client whose daughter is complaining about her groom’s thunderous snoring. Puri’s indomitable Mummy-ji however is adamant the client is genuine. How else could she so accurately describe under hypnosis Riya Kaur’s life and final hours? Driven by a sense of duty—the original case was his late father’s—Puri manages to acquire the police file only to find that someone powerful has orchestrated a cover-up. Forced into an alliance with his mother that tests his beliefs and high blood pressure as never before, it’s only by delving into the past with the help of his reincarnated client that Puri can hope to unlock the truth.

“Hall’s plot is filled with engaging twists. Vish is a wonderfully realized character, and we’re treated to his takes on Delhi’s pollution, traffic, and food.” Booklist (starred review)
“With pitch-perfect aplomb, Dastor expertly commands the colorful cast, navigating comedic twists and solemn tragedies. From the opening credits to the closing author’s note, the gleeful relief of savoring Dastor’s performance never wanes, until the very last second, when you’ll have to face the unavoidable, undeniable hunger for more.” Booklist audio review (starred review)
