About the Author

Arjun Raj Gaind is one of India's best known comic book writers. He is the creator and author of the critically acclaimed, best-selling graphic novels, Empire of Blood, Reincarnation Man, The Mighty Yeti, Project: Kalki, Blade of the Warrior: Kshatriya, and A Brief History of Death. A Very Pukka Murder is his debut novel, the first in a trilogy featuring the adventures of Maharaja Sikander Singh, set against the backdrop of princely India during the heyday of the British Raj.


"...a delightfully intriguing mystery...captures the spirit of the British Raj - with its appalling racism and indolence - while still letting the legacy of Sikander's ancestors represent India's glorious past...Armchair travelers, mystery readers and history lovers are sure to enjoy this interesting twist on life in the British Empire."--Jessica Howard "Shelf Awareness "
"George V's visit to India in 1911 provides the backdrop for Gaind's excellent sequel to 2016's A Very Pukka Murder...Golden age fans will appreciate how Sikander works his way through an array of suspects. Once again, Gaind successfully blends detection with history." (starred review)--Publishers Weekly
"The middle volume in Gaind's Maharaja Mystery trilogy (A Very Pukka Murder, 2016) is both an homage to vintage British whodunits of the 1930s and a wry comedy of manners."--Kirkus Reviews
"This is the second Maharaja mystery. The author is familiar with the culture and politics of the era, and he paints a rich, thorough picture of India during the Raj period. It's enjoyable as an historical novel as well as a well-written mystery."--Historical Novel Society
