Neal gives an overview of the book:

After solving the murder of illustrious guru Ajoy Chaterjee, yoga detective Matt Bolster is finally getting some students at his Los Angeles yoga classes. With attendance now hitting the double digits, nothing can stop the Bolster express.

When Bolster gets invited to teach at The Gathering, a prestigious yoga retreat run by the renowned Tom Hart, it seems like things can’t get any better. Bolster is a little dubious about the cultish atmosphere, but, as they say in L.A., it’s an honor just to be nominated. What starts off as a relaxing, decadent retreat quickly spirals into deadly chaos that forces Bolster to use all his yoga-detective powers, and also his fists.

Open Your Heart, like Neal Pollack's first Matt Bolster book, Downward-Facing Death, is a biting satire of trendy, sexually-driven yoga culture, where ancient principles of loving enlightenment clash with the darkest corners of human nature. The latest in the Matt Bolster Yoga Mystery series will thrill readers, whether they read it while in Crow Pose or on the couch.

My second detective novel featuring former LAPD homicide detective-turned yoga teacher Matt Bolster is blazing great paths in the yoga detective genre. This Bolster book is a really fun send-up of the ego-and-sex drenched California yoga scene. I hope you all take some time to check it out.
