A suicide in an upper-class, politically connected business family is exactly the kind of case that Additional Commissioner of Police Nikhil Juneja likes to take on. Easy contacts, easy money and an easy conscience. But things don't work out quite like that. The death becomes a murder, the contacts onerous and his conscience heavy. Like India in the mid 1990s, Juneja can't decide which way to go.
Chaotic and corrupt, yet with a lethally persuasive charm, Delhi, old and new, stars in this riveting debut novel about the banality of justice sought and deflected.
