Maharajas, Mystics and Masala

La Di Da Di Bloody Da! Series

Campy, quirky and hysterically funny, this story has it all. The characters are easy to picture, the scenes easy to see, and the world these ladies live in is well written. It is a bit hard to understand at first as it’s a bit over the top. You’re talking about drag queens here. The writing of Robin Anderson does grow on you and you get the flow of the words. Sometimes the zaniness almost over takes the story.

Kookie or Miz K as she is known becomes the owner of a game reserve in Africa. So off Miz K and Miz M go to check it out. There are ivory poacher there, which somehow leads the ladies to find themselves in among the palaces of Mogul India. There they find a Maharajah, his lover as well as two young lovers. There are drag appearances by more than a few well know movie leading ladies. This leads to all kinds of zany happenings and there’s even a murder. In a lot of ways this book reminds me of the old “Road To” series done by Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.

There are a lot of things going on in this story and a lot of characters. I believe this was book number three in the series and I hadn't read the first two. I was a bit lost in a few of the relationships between characters. Maharajas, Mystics and Masala is a funny and zany book.
