Enjoy another 'exhilarating roller-coaster ride of unusual cases' (Publishers Weekly) in this second book of the Ravi PI series, featuring detective Ravi Chandra Singh and his team at the gleefully amoral, unfailingly dangerous secret agency Golden Sentinels.
When Ravi's colleagues at Golden Sentinels discover that he sees gods in moments of heightened anxiety and stress, they are surprisingly fine with it. They even encourage him to incorporate his visions into his work, especially now that the cases have become more intense, with many hidden risks at play. But their latest case - a search for a dead Russian oligarch's last will and testament - leads to more than anyone expected: a missing heir, murderous relatives, and geopolitical implications. So, when Ravi's boss sends him to Los Angeles to wait out the heat, it's almost a relief...until Ravi's past catches up to him.
In this thrilling and complex sequel to Her Nightly Embrace, nothing is what it seems, as Ravi stumbles upon a dangerous scheme that involves the CIA, MI5, and a wanted man with a $20 million price on his head.
Ravi Singh, who works for the London branch of Golden Sentinels Private Investigations and Security Agency, has the ability to see Indian gods Ganesha, Kali, Shiva a gift that he finds highly unsettling. His boss, however, believes that his visions actually make him a better operative, and Ravi uses them effectively in Tantimedh's outstanding sequel to 2016's Her Nightly Embrace. In the opening case, Ravi and his team seek economic justice for victims of a fraudster who created a fake company that claimed to have invented a revolutionary model of drone detector. Ravi and his colleagues, who use elaborate plots they consider "social engineering," are next employed to thwart some evil British nobles with a history of marrying wealthy spouses who have a suspicious tendency to die of some sickness. Brilliantly combining an original and offbeat concept, extremely clever plotting, and fast pacing, Tantimedh offers every indication he can carry these strengths over into future volumes.
