A detective delves into a cold case; a ship that disappeared in the Bay of Bengal in the year 1913.
A man is bludgeoned to death in an apartment and a piece of paper with the word ‘STOP!’ is nailed to his forehead.
Six deaths under mysterious circumstances and the only common link is a box of arsenic-laced sweets.
A soldier’s homecoming dredges up memories of a murder that took place a decade ago in the family.
The first-ever anthology of its kind, The Hachette Book of Indian Detective Fiction compiles more than 30 compelling whodunits spread across two volumes. Hybrid, self-reflexive and experimental forms of writing that blur the boundaries between genres, with supernatural mysteries, serial murders and at times absurd crimes jostling for the attention of both amateur and professional detectives in these stories.
Red herrings simmered in blood gravy, served up with family feuds, ancient curses, long-haired lady sleuths and many other typical subcontinental chutneys provide a rare feast for the avid reader of crime fiction!
