About the Book
Dead bodies of women, all strangled, begin appearing on the hills lining the serpentine Gurgaon-Faridabad Road. The faces have been mutilated beyond recognition. A Bollywood film director has an adulterous affair with his scriptwriter’s wife and receives blackmail threats. A night time rendezvous with the blackmailer leads to murder. Prostitutes have been disappearing for years from Mumbai’s world famous Kamathipura red light area. Is there a monstrous shadow looming over all these events? As the police investigators from Gurgaon travel to Goa following tenuous leads, mysterious events on a film location shooting and murder and mayhem on a casino ship lead to a nerve-wracking and totally unexpected climax.
