Topnotch business executive Rahul Mehta is
found murdered at the unlikeliest of places – a big, fat Indian wedding in the
multimillionaire Gupta industrialist family! There are suspects galore: Several
members of the Gupta family who resented Rahul's success and his brazen affair
with the glamorous widow of one of the Gupta brothers. The dead man's wife
Kamini. Tagami, Rahul's arch business rival. Even canny politician, Sitaram
Kesri, Minister of Industries. All of them had the opportunity as they were
guests at the wedding and ample motive, too. So who killed him?
An advertising professional, Shankar Sood,
gets drawn into the investigation by chance but the police soon develop respect
for his capabilities. Totally baffling and unexpected developments unfold after
the murder, including sex scandals and newspaper leaks. Just when the police
have almost given up hope, Shankar is able to put all the pieces together and
solve the riddle. Murder, love, money and power: All the elements of a racy
read that you won't be able to put down!
