The Silence of the Lambs meets Fargo in this debut thriller set within the Ghats and labyrinth of India’s spiritual centre, Varanasi. Helen, a young English teacher arrives in the ancient city of Varanasi to stay with her aunt Agatha, a local missionary. It follows her mother’s suicide. Her arrival coincides with a series of gruesome ritual killings. Four young women have been burned to death. Central Bureau of Investigations officer Arjun Das, who was raised in Varanasi, returns from New Delhi to mount an urgent investigation. With the approach of Holi, the extraordinary Hindu festival of colour, it becomes clear that the killer is preparing to claim the greatest sacrifice of them all to attain Moksha. Helen’s encounter with a reclusive Aghori priest, forges an unusual bond which brings her to the attention of the killer.
