Description

An enthralling adventure set in one of the world’s most exciting cities.

The recovery of a diamond-encrusted gold box from the Mughal era draws together a blind street musician, a schoolboy and a young policeman. But what the box is reputed to have contained is even more valuable, and there are dark forces that will stop at nothing to recover it.

Disturbing contemporary problems and secrets from the past surface as the unlikely allies grapple with a mystery that gets as twisted and murky as Mumbai’s by-lanes. A world-famous art dealer, his snooty daughter, an influential MLA and an astrologer join a cast of characters as diverse as the denizens of the city. And as events spiral towards a stunning climax, you will wish that this thrilling adventure would never end.
