Mrinalini Gupta is back with her eclectic group of family and support staff; and dodgy hip. A semi-retired consultant after years of corporate life, Mrinalini has moved home, to Santiniketan – Rabindranath Tagore’s university town in India. Her desire to lead a peaceful life continues to elude her as she gets embroiled in her second murder mystery.
In December, Santiniketan gears up for its biggest festival of the year, namely, the Poush Mela – a four-day carnival which has craft and art and food and corporations and entertainment and millions of tourists from all over the world. Mini di and her large extended family are having a wonderful time till a woman is brutally murdered.
This book falls within the genre of ‘Cosy Mysteries’. Perfect for a ‘couch potato’ or ‘self-isolation’ day – depending on which times you live in.
