In the fourth Harith Athreya mystery, a murderer strikes at a luxury resort - can detective Athreya prevent them from capsizing his holiday?
Detective Harith Athreya is recuperating from an illness in the beautiful backwaters of Kerala when he stumbles into a new form of intrigue: a family of vacationing Bollywood royalty, who want his help making a murder mystery film.
But not all is as it seems with the family - there are rumours of major money troubles, links to organised crime and growing rivalries between the scions.
One of them is found dead, murdered in the exact manner of the film that Athreya has been helping to put together. Is this the work of an angry co-star, or something more sinister? Tensions rise as the family starts to point the finger at one another.
Fearful that he has unwittingly provided a blueprint for the murder, Athreya has no choice but to put his holiday on hold to solve the case.
