Am Reading - The Kolkata Conundrum, Kalyan Lahiri

Author Name: 

This book, from India, has such a wonderful sense of place and culture, partially due to the "tone" of the writing, which is beautifully lyrical.

From the Blurb:

The mysterious and alluring Pramila, resident of Avantika Heights, is brutally murdered. Sudhir Das, the security guard from the Golden Red Security Agency, is caught red-handed. 

In steps Sudhir's boss, young Orko Deb, the hesitant avenger. 

His cautious sleuthing, all over Kolkata, throws up more questions than answers. 

Who is Pramila?
