The fertile belts of India hide their own deadly secrets.
One fine morning, Diya Rai’s high-flying career as a management consultant ends abruptly. With little to sustain her lifestyle in Delhi, she reluctantly moves back to her ancestral village, Dhanpur, a sleepy little village in the state of Uttar Pradesh on the banks of the Ganges.
Not all is what it seems…
As soon as she arrives in Dhanpur, she finds herself thrown into trouble: her father has been accused of murdering his farm labourer and the once warm villagers have suddenly found new enemies in the Rais.
Determined to clear her father’s name, Diya teams up with a local cop, Sub-inspector Dev Kaushal.
As the outsider wades through the murky layers of truth, dirty secrets of the simpletons start bobbing up; it doesn’t take much for Diya to realise that the purest of the heartlands harbour the deadliest of intentions. The first in a new series, Neelabh Pratap Singh writes a totally unputdownable murder mystery with a dash of romance that will keep you hooked from the first page.
