Constructed around the true Nanavati murder case, Indra Sinha's first novel offers a rare and fascinating insight into the psychosexual undercurrents of Indian life. In a family of storytellers, there was one tale never told...The reverberations from the notorious Nanavati society murder in 1950s Bombay - involving a love triangle between an Indian playboy, an Englishwoman and her jealous Indian husband - were so great they reached the offices of Prime Minister Nehru. What is not known is that a second, connected crime, so cruel that it destroyed the lives of two women, went unreported and has remained unpunished. Until now. In present-day London the women's children meet. Driven by grief and anger they return to India to uncover the mystery of the crime that caused their mothers' suffering and exact their cold revenge. But in the bazaars of today's Bombay, a city racked and burned by riots, their adversary still enjoys huge power, and the friends soon find themselves in real, terrifying danger.
