Here’s an opportunity to become a detective

On the occasion of the publication of The Paris Enigma by Pablo Di Santis, Harper Collins Publication is organising a contest for the readers. Interested candidates should write an application to Detective Craig for the position of an acolyte giving him a good reason to hire you and which case in the book interested you the most and why. Women can be more confident in filing their application because according to Sanjay Singh CEO of Indian Detective Agency (the organisation that has partnered with HCI) says “Through our past experience we have found that revealing or extracting truth from somebody is easier for female detectives than male detectives.”

Contestants should mail their application to contest@harper The contest helps the reader get a first hand experience of ways in which this rapidly growing industry works. The last date for sending your application is August 31 and the results will be out by September 5. The winner of this All-India detective contest will get a training from the best detective at Indian detective agency.

The Paris Enigma is a huge best seller in Spanish and is the winner of the Casa de America Prize for best novel. It’s translated by Martha Lethem, sister of best selling author Jonathan Letham.
