Not Really A Crime Novel
Beware! This is not really a crime novel. True, a young boy is found murdered in a seedy Calcutta hotel, but the novel is really about the relationship that develops between Jerry Delfont, a hack writer suffering from writer's block, and the mysterious Mrs Unger the woman who hires him to solve the crime, and, needless to say, is not all that she seems.
Paul Theroux is a great writer, both of fiction and travel literature, but this isn't one of his best books.
