Vish Puri mystery
Sequel to: The case of the missing servant.
Murder is no laughing matter. Yet a prominent Indian scientist dies in a fit of giggles when a Hindu goddess appears from a mist and plunges a sword into his chest. The only one laughing now is the main suspect, a powerful guru who seems to have done away with his most vocal critic. But Vish Puri, India's Most Private Investigator and lover of all things fried, doesn't believe the murder is a supernatural occurrence.
