Her Nightly Embrace: Book 1 of the Ravi P.I. Series

Adi Tantimedh. Atria, $26 (288p) ISBN 978-1-5011-3057-1
Tantimedh’s episodic first novel, a trilogy launch, takes the reader on an exhilarating roller-coaster ride of unusual cases. Ravi Singh, a religious-studies dropout and failed teacher who’s on the hook for his mother’s gambling debts, is employed at the London office of the Golden Sentinels Private Investigations Agency. Working with other social misfits hired to discreetly resolve issues in any way necessary for clients willing to pay well, Ravi is tasked with finding the ghost having sex with a high-ranking politician. Ravi’s success brings on visions of Hindu gods. Helping a runaway bride, or outing an online troll who’s bashing an author, is hard work with Lord Vishnu looking on. As the cases become more intense, more gods appear to Ravi. When investment bankers start dying, a new client hires the agency to save her. Ravi eventually begins to grasp that there’s more to his employer—and himself—than he first realized. Those who enjoy mysteries with a touch of fantasy will welcome this auspicious debut. Agent: Lisa Gallagher, DeFiore and Company. (Nov.)
