The Case of the Deadly Butter Chicken by Tarquin Hall

Private detective Vish Puri is hired to find out who poisoned the father of famous cricketer Kamran Khan.  Puri was actually present at the party where Mr. Khan ate the butter chicken laced with aconite. Was he killed because of the illegal goings-on in the international world of cricket (such as match fixing and illegal gambling) or is the reason more personal?  Puri has his hands full, having to travel from India to Pakistan dealing with several wealthy, powerful and hard to access suspects. Will he be able to unmask the killer?  This third novel in the Vish Puri series was okay reading, but I was hoping for more of a presence for Puri's mother, Mummy-ji and forward movement in the lives of the recurring characters.
