Krishna’s Secret by Devdutt Pattanaik

Midnight in Death by J. D. Robb

Midnight in Death by J. D. Robb

“Murder knows no traditions. It ignores sentiments. It takes no holidays.” The ominous opening lines of my latest read Midnight in Death by J. D. Robb aka Nora Roberts sent a shiver down my spine. After hobnobbing with witty Gauri and impressive Holmes, I thought a pure murder mystery would […]
