- CITY OF DEATH
DetailsOn a muggy monsoon afternoon Sohini Sen gets a call from the chief minister’s office. A young woman from a well-connected family in the city has been found brutally murdered. Sen is brought back from a bureaucratic wasteland to the thick of the action. An intelligent and intuitive investigator who struggles with addiction and depression, Sen is ill-prepared for an investigation that is a political minefield with TV anchors and tabloids baying for blood. As various interested parties, armed with power and money, try to manipulate the murder enquiry, Sen is forced to question the very possibility of justice. A moody, atmospheric novel that is as much about the Indian city and the dark depths of the human mind as it is about crime and investigation, City of Death marks the debut of a brilliant new voice.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Abheek Barua has been in the financial sector for twenty-four years and is currently the Chief Economist of HDFC Bank.
