Bollywood P.I.



Not all clues lead to the answer you're searching for…

Aparajita Patel punches numbers and coddles patients at a health clinic in Santa Barbara, California. Her only excitement is a daily dose of Bollywood P.I. (starring a senior citizen), and dodging her mother’s matchmaking attempts.

When Jita’s cousin mysteriously disappears, she strikes out on her own, only to be joined by a collection of misfits along the way.

When she stumbles upon a bizarre crime operation involving drug smuggling and missing women, the group find themselves on the run for their lives.

Can Jita and her crazy-making troupe stop the machine before D-day?

"...an immensely satisfying mystery."

Priya Khajuria’s deftly written Bollywood P.I. has absolutely everything: it’s funny, it’s smart, it’s exciting—and it’s unlike anything else I’ve ever read, in the best possible way.

With Jita, Khajuria has created a sassy, street smart character who also has a beautiful heart, and some seriously good one-liners.  

You will not want this book to end. When it does, you’ll want to read it again. If you love Bollywood, you’ll love this book. If you love great books, you’ll love this book. If you love to laugh, you’ll love this book. There are so many reasons to love this book!

Marissa Stapley, bestselling author * The Last Resort and Lucky

Bollywood P.I. was one of the most enjoyable mysteries I've read in a long time (and I read a lot of mysteries). The characters are hip, the dialog is fun, there's a lot of action, a good plot, and a sweet resolution. What more can you ask for in a mystery? I enjoyed every page and look forward to more from Priya Khajuria.

This is a wonderful, warm, inspiring story that will inspire you and lift your spirits.
Brian Tracy, public speaker and bestselling author * Eat That Frog!

…A great storyline with plenty of twists and turns, nicely rounded out with some excellent humour.

Bollywood P.I. has a soul: it lives and breathes and plays your heartstrings like a master on the sitar. You're in for one hell of a treat.
Andrew Marc Rowe, author * The Yoga Trilogy

…a fun, light-hearted read. Part romantic-comedy, part mystery novel, its main character, Jita, is a funny, likable heroine, endowed with the amazing ability to get herself in — and out — of various scrapes. Jita's interactions with her mother, who is determined to see her wed, were hilarious, and the cast of side characters added color and humor to the tale. This is the first book in what promises to be an engaging series in the same vein as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series.
