Soon to be a TV series! Enter “an exciting and dynamic new world of storytelling in which spirituality and science are inextricably entwined” (Deepak Chopra) with this boxed set of the engaging, whip-smart, and witty Ravi PI series.
In Her Nightly Embrace, Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you’d expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups and together, they are hired to solve the problems of some of the most powerful people in town. But Ravi is in over his head with increasingly gonzo and complex cases—and the recent visions that he’s been having of Hindu gods aren’t helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if he’s delusional—or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognized shaman of the modern world.
Her Beautiful Monster continues the vivid series with Ravi’s colleagues at Golden Sentinels discovering that he sees gods in moments of heightened anxiety and stress. They are all surprisingly fine with it and even encourage him to incorporate his visions into his work, especially now that the cases have become more intense. But their latest case—a search for a dead Russian oligarch’s last will and testament—leads to more than anyone expected: a missing heir, murderous relatives, and geopolitical implications. So, when Ravi’s boss sends him to Los Angeles to wait out the heat, it’s almost a relief…until Ravi’s past catches up to him.
Finally, in Her Fugitive Heart, Ravi simply desires to marry his girlfriend in peace, but events conspire to keep things anything but peaceful. An actress hires the agency to track down the source of a sex tape she never made, yet still appeared in. A weekend party in a deceased rock star’s country mansion where the investigators are charged with surveilling the rich guests for dirt goes way out of control. A terrorist leader goes missing in London before he can turn himself in to the CIA and the agency is hired to help track him down. And finally, Ravi’s boss’s secret plans to make himself a major player in the world stage blows up in his face and Ravi must go into hiding. The future of the Golden Sentinels and Ravi hang in the balance in the gripping and unforgettable conclusion to the Ravi PI series.
