The first in a trilogy of whip-smart novels--currently in development as a TV series set to star Sendhil Ramamurthy (NBC's Heroes and Heroes Reborn )--about a destructive private investigator and his eccentric coworkers, who handle cases so high-profile that they never make the headlines.

Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you'd expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups: Ken and Clive, a pair of brutal ex-cops who are also a gay couple; Mark Chapman, a burned-out stoner hiding a great mind; Marcie Holder, a cheerful former publicist; Benjamin Lee, a techie prankster from South London; David Okri, an ambitious lawyer from a well-connected Nigerian immigrant family; and Olivia Wong, an upper-class Hong Kong financial analyst hiding her true skills as one of the most dangerous hackers in the world--all under the watchful eye of Roger Golden, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire, and his mysterious office manager, Cheryl Hughes.

Thrust into a world where the rich, famous, and powerful hire him to solve their problems and wash their dirty laundry, Ravi finds himself in over his head with increasingly gonzo and complex cases - and the recent visions that he's been having of Hindu gods aren't helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if the things he's seeing are a delusion - or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognized shaman of the modern world...

So pithy and fresh, if you like irreverent, tongue in cheek dialogue, you'll love this! Great mystery at work, too!

This was a really intriguing premise where Ravi solves cases while seeing the gods. I liked the little mini stories connected by ongoing events in the book, so I will have to hunt down the BBC series to see if they did make it into a show. Worth trying out, especially if you like mysteries and short stories.
