Praise for THE UNEXPECTED INHERITANCE OF INSPECTOR CHOPRA
:

Woman & Home

A cast of intriguing characters that it will be a joy to see develop. But the greatest strength is the setting in the teeming city of Mumbai, from which the colour and atmosphere flows out of every page in this enjoyable, whimsical tale
Daily Express
A sparkling debut with a zippy plot and an endearing set of characters
The Lady
A quirky murder mystery... full of colourful characters and insightful details about human motivation
