Tarquin Hall, the author who has created detective Vish Puri, on why golgappas, as well as crime fiction, are an acquired taste.

On a misty January afternoon, in a café at the India Habitat Centre, not far from where Vish Puri, his fictional Punjabi super-sleuth has his Khan Market office, novelist Tarquin Hall quaffs at a long, black Americano. "I can’t keep my eyes open. I’ve been writing the whole day," declares the 45-year-old author, whose books place Puri, a 50-something Punjabi Poirot of sorts, into the maze that is Delhi.
