Another of this weeks reads was Her Nightly Embrace by Adi Tantimedh! . It had been a while since I've read a good mystery and this one peaked my interest as it's been optioned for TV. . In the book you read about Ravi Chandra who falls accidentally into being a PI. But Ravi has a special talent. He can see Gods. . While reading HNE you can definitely tell that it's been optioned for TV. It almost reads like a screenplay. You'll read about 4 different cases that Ravi investigates. . Overall I enjoyed Her Nightly embrace. But it was the lack of character development and a few plot wholes that caused me to give the book ⭐️⭐️⭐️ . Full Synopsis from Goodreads: 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: Ken and Clive, a pair of brutal ex-cops who are also a gay couple; Mark Chapman, a burned-out stoner hiding a great mind; Marcie Holder, a cheerful former publicist; Benjamin Lee, a techie prankster from South London; David Okri, an ambitious lawyer from a well-connected Nigerian immigrant family; and Olivia Wong, an upper-class Hong Kong financial analyst hiding her true skills as one of the most dangerous hackers in the world—all under the watchful eye of Roger Golden, wheeler-dealer extraordinaire, and his mysterious office manager, Cheryl Hughes. . Thrust into a world where the rich, famous, and powerful hire him to solve their problems and wash their dirty laundry, Ravi finds himself 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 the things he’s seeing are a delusion – or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognized shaman of the modern world.
