Mystery Amateur Sleuth
Under the Eye of Kali introduces Indian American amateur
sleuth Anita Ray, who lives with her aunt at a tourist hotel
in South India. The guests are the usual assortment of
foreigners, but two of them are too free with their plans to
smuggle medical materials into Burma. When one becomes ill
and her traveling companion turns up dead, Anita is
determined to find out what is happening.
While also trying to track down the source of one guest's
sudden panic, Anita must also cope with strange goings-on
within the hotel management. Auntie Meena's behavior becomes
increasingly erratic, and she refused to explain strange
expenditures from the hotel income.
Under the Eye of Kali takes the reader into a little-known
part of South India, and behind the scenes in a popular
resort. The men and women who make the world a special
vacation site are also the ones who watch the strangers in
their midst skirt danger without even knowing it. And the
workers come together to help their own.
This mystery is rich with the sights and smells and secrets
of South India and Indian families. Anita is a young woman
fending off her aunt's efforts to find her a suitable
husband, all the while reminding her of her family heritage
and the duty of a young Indian woman. Anita, of course, will
have none of it. A talented photographer, she is determined
to live the life she wants--and that is her only ambition,
along with tracking down murderers.
