The Case of the Love Commandos

India’s Love Commandos rescue a young woman from a high caste family bent on marrying an untouchable student called Ram. But the young man is a no-show at the wedding. To find him, Vish Puri must travel into the badlands of rural India where the local politics are shaped by millennia-old caste prejudices. His archrival, the unethical yet capable Hari Kumar, is also after Ram, making this the most entertaining case yet for the gormandizing Punjabi detective.
