The Case of the Love Commandos (Vish Puri #4) is published today in the UK.  It’s available on Kindle and in paperback here.

The US edition came out on Tuesday.  Publishers Weekly chose the book as a Best New Books for the Week, calling it ‘thought-provoking and charming.”  You can read more here.

NPR “Crime in the City” Feature

National Public Radio in the US is airing a ten minute segment on me and Vish Puri today (Thursday August 28th) at 0650 and 0850 Eastern Standard Time (that’s 1150 and 1250 GMT).  I’ll be sure to post a link later in the day, but if you’re outside of the USA and want to listen as the piece goes to air, here’s the link:



Case Closed

One of the most satisfying parts of the writing process is getting a finished manuscript bound. It makes the whole process feel worthwhile! I get mine done in Delhi in leather with gold emboss. The lettering’s stamped by hand and, to be honest, it’s all a bit wonky, but then that’s part of the charm. This is a bound copy of the first draft of ‘The Case of the Love Commandos’ (to be published Oct 2013), corrections and all. Something nice to pass onto the kids. Perhaps between now and then, I’ll get myself a nice old antique glass cabinet to put my growing collection in.
