THE DAZZLING DEBUT FROM YOUR NEW FAVOURITE CRIME WRITER.
Among the rarefied circles of Mumbai’s posh Temple Hill, there is nothing more tragic than the loss of face — not even loss of life.
Award-winning novelist Radhi Zaveri flees home to Temple Hill trying to escape a broken heart and humiliating writer’s block.
But she is met by a terrible tragedy. Her pregnant best friend Sanjana’s father has killed himself.
And yet, just hours before, he was telling Sanjana that he couldn’t wait to hold his grandchild in his arms. What triggered this desperate act? And why is their young maid so terrified?
Radhi is determined to uncover the truth. But the deeper she digs beneath the diamond-studded prayer meetings and the lavishly catered ‘pure-veg’ brunches, the faster she finds herself drawn into a web of festering grievances, hidden agendas and long-buried secrets.
Fans of Richard Osman, Victoria Dowd, Ian Moore, Vaseem Khan, Louise Penny and Shamini Flint will devour this brilliant, atmospheric murder mystery.
