The Bangalore Detectives Club by Harini Nagendra


Someone is killing people.  Who could it be?

Pegasus Books and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It has already been published so you can get a copy now.

First a pimp is killed.  He was a big man.  Then a blackmailer was killed.  A doctor was killed.

The wife of a doctor starts her own investigation, but it is dangerous.  Her husband is not happy about it.  She talks to a lot of women, gardeners and more but she hasn't found the killer yet.

When she does, the killer is trying to kill her....

It's a busy book with many suspects and the killer surprised me.
