Item description for Season of the Monsoon (George Sansi Mysteries) by Paul Mann...

As a police detective in Bombay, Inspector George Sansi is used to struggling for order in one of the world's most exuberantly chaotic cities. But the mutilated corpse discovered in Bollywood -- the Hollywood of India -- taxes even Sansi's formidable skills. Could the murder have been a cult initiation gone hideously wrong? Was it the work of a serial killer? Was the victim killed as part of a political cover-up? Answering those questions will take Sansi from Bombay's teeming slums to the film community's palaces of excess and the menacing haunts of India's underworld. It will uncover a web of corruption that stretches from the powerful to the desperately powerless. And it will leave him running for his life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Season of the Monsoon (George Sansi Mysteries)?

Engrossing and vivid page-turner set in India  Jul 18, 2002
Set in India, *Season of the Monsoon* is a police mystery filled with vivid imagery and wonderful descriptive language. Mann's ability to draw in his readers and keep them riveted is reminiscent of well-known mystery authors like Michael Connelly, and this is definitely high praise. Where writers like Connelly surpass Mann, however, is in their ability to construct a complex mystery that presents twists and turns that keep coming throughout the novel. Mann's story is intriguing, but ultimately, the resolution of the mystery (i.e., the identity of a serial killer) is (disappointingly) simple. The ending is a bit theatrical, which is also something of a flaw.

Overall, however, this novel is gorgeously written and once started is hard to put down. Maybe "gorgeously" is an inappropriate word here, since some of the book's descriptive vividness relates to horrifying imagery related to corpses and murders. This story is definitely NOT for the squeamish. Having greatly enjoyed *The Season of the Monsoon*, however, I definitely plan to read others in the Sansi mystery series.

wonderful!  Mar 13, 2001
this is a great book and a great series. terrific mystery in an exotic locale. Can't wait for more of Paul Mann's George Sansi novels. Have a cup of Chai and enjoy!
Excellent mystery, but some parts not for the faint of heart  Jul 4, 1996
Extremely well-written mystery introducing George Sansi, the half-Indian, half-British inspector for a special divi- sion within the Bombay Police Department. It shows not only Sansi's frustration at having to deal with the system (and I should point out that Sansi's "system" makes ours look like a bunch of yes-men), but also provides a view of India that is somewhat different from any other fictional account I've read. A word of caution, however: some sections of Mann's novel get unnecessarily gory (in description, not in action; Sansi isn't a violent man), and while in hindsight these parts are vital to the plot, I do wish that Mann could have toned them down - I don't often get queasy reading a book, but I did with this one. Thankfully, descriptions like that are few and far between, and on the whole, this is an extremely well-written book.
