Product description


Praise for A Cut-Like Wound "I loved this book and was constantly gripped. Anita Nair's writing in some moments has photographic qualities, in others the precision of surgeon's scalpel; and always the great inner warmth of the human heart. Truly astounding writing."- Peter James, author of 'Dead Simple' In this exceptional police procedural, Nair immerses her readers in Bangalore's alluring and sinister melange of Hindu and Moslem cultures, revealing a people afflicted by the inability to allow unqualified praise for anything or anyone. Complex, psychologically deep characters are a plus. PW Starred Those who enjoy international settings will surely enjoy the well-drawn tension between modern and traditional Indian culture, Gowda s steady confidence, and the heady immersion in Bangalore s hidden recesses. Booklist Anita Nair is a feminist and highly regarded Indian novelist. As startling a debut crime novel as you are likely to read. This is a troubling novel about men and sexual identity, ending with a shattering and unexpected revelation. Sunday Times Nair captures the seedy side of shiny new India vividly, and Inspector Gowda with his weary self-knowledge; his secret, his stagnating marriage and his confusion when an old flame re-enters his life is a welcome addition to the ranks of flawed-but-lovable fictional cops. Guardian "
