    One thought on “Kali's Heel”

    1. I won this book from in exchange for an honest review. I found this book very hard to get into. It is touted as a mystery, but is not at all a mystery. I think you need a working knowledge of Hindi religious practices and terminology before reading this book. I spent much of it being confused and only found the glossary after finishing the book. Putting the glossary at the beginning is a small change that could have really improved my experience. Sorry, but this wasn't for me.

    2. I won this book in a giveaway here on . DNF at 24 pages. It just seemed strange and hard to follow for me. :/

    3. Midnight assignations, shady art dealers and the goddess Kali herself demanding retribution! You'll love this Annie Gilbert Mystery, set in an ashram in India.
