The book has its moments but it is unable to balance between keeping up with the detective story format and raising vital socio-political issues such as the discourse on section 377 in India. What comes through, though, is the writer Pinto's intense association with the city of Mumbai- with its riches as well as rags and with its joys as well as sorrows.
Murder in Mahim is unable to become a worthy successor to Pinto’s flawless debut Em and the Big Hoom.

Jerry pinto is a decent novelist, his a bear for Felicia is an old time favorite with me. I enjoyed his Helen...also. u will enjoy this novel if you like a bit gore, English word play. If u are a hard core murder mystery fan then you will know the who did it earlier...but Jerry pinto s writings are not read for their endings but for the phrases, thought processes.

Man murdered in a squalid lavatory on a station platform. Add the fact that a gay honey-trap took him there and it tells a lot about the story. There is a gritty reality to the way Mumbai's gay scene unfolds, questioning relationships and providing opportunities for exploitation. We see the story from the eyes of an ex-journalist who tags along with a police team as their probe enlarges. A new kind of Indian detective story, well worth reading.

Awesome Jerry Pinto writing as usual. Enjoy his style of writing. The plot and the minute nuances which he brings to the characters are a pleasure to read. Cheers
