Visha Puri is a highly respected detective who one day gets called to investigate the death of  a Dr. Jha  who died while participating in the activities of the laughing club – a health practice.   It seems that during the laughing session  a Hindu goddess appeared from the heavenly mists and stuck a sword into him.  Now … that gives one pause – there were many witnesses,  it did happen.  But how and why?

This was a very enjoyable book,  I chuckled many times with a few lol’s in there, too.  Puri is smart and funny,  the plot is complex and has a few twists but it all comes together in the end.   I think I’ll listen to some more of Hall’s books.
