Death in the Air

Death in the Air

Author(s): Ram Murali

Location(s): Indian Himalayan Region

Genre(s): Crime, Mystery

Era(s): Contemporary



Welcome to Samsara, a world-class spa nestled in the Indian Himalayas where all your wishes are just a gilded notecard away. Ro Krishna has just checked in. With his rakish charm, Oxford education, perfect hair, he has it all – well, until he loses his job at the hands of a white woman with a vendetta. It’s stressful, and Ro decides it’s time for some much-needed R&R. At Samsara, he’s free to explore the wealth of yoga classes, wellness treatments and guided meditation sessions on offer among the rest of his exclusive, kurta pyjama-clad guests. It’s the pinnacle of relaxation.

Until, that is, Amrita – gorgeous, charismatic, well-connected – is found dead among the trees. As the guests and Mrs. B, Samsara’s all-seeing matriarch, scramble to figure out what happened, Ro is pulled into an investigation that endangers them all and threatens to spiral beyond the hotel walls. Because it turns out it’s not just heiresses and Bollywood stars-to-be that have checked in: cocktail hour is over, and death is on its way…

Bursting with wit, glamour and smarts, Death in the Air is a murder mystery like no other: at once a love letter to Agatha Christie and a razor-sharp exploration of colonialism and class
