Product description


An Amazon Rising Star of Autumn 2016: In Abheek Barua's debut novel, the City of Joy transforms into the City of Death. This dark, twisted and gripping tale of crime follows a 40-something investigator, Sohini Sen, whose near-dead career is somewhat resurrected when she is called in by the chief minister to investigate the high-profile murder of a leading industrialist's daughter in the city of Kolkata.

From the wonderfully evocative descriptions of the state and political machinery of the times, old money families, the new media barons and the television anchors who ""Combine the hectoring style of a Bible belt preacher with a careful disregard for the politically correct,"" one gets flashes of real-life people and incidents that may have inspired the author to craft this tale. A compelling and chilling debut novel. One can only hope that there will be more books to follow! - Debeshi Gooptu, Huffington Post India.

About the Author

Abheek Barua has been in the financial sector for twenty-four years and is currently the Chief Economist of HDFC Bank. Having written on the issues in the dry world of economics and finance for over a decade, he was curious to know if his skills would work in fiction. City of Death is his first novel.
