Obsessed by Ruchi Kokcha: A shocking novel of lust and murder
"The most shocking novel you’ll ever read," says a note from the publishers, HarperCollins Publishers India, about Obsessed, described as "a tale of lust and murder" by Ruchi Kokcha, and recommended by Ravinder Singh.
Disturbingly dark and full of shocking surprises, Obsessed traverses a path along the razor’s edge of twisted love. How far will Avik’s and Ananki’s obsessions take them?
Investigative journalist Avik has finally found the one case that could bring him glory. Or death.
As the mystery behind millionaire Kalki Rajput’s murder thickens, Avik is forced to risk it all to bring out the truth that has eluded many before him.
If only he could uncover what the victim's daughter had witnessed. Of course, that would mean diving into the depths of her madness. He had thought he could resurface with the truth. Now he will count himself lucky if he makes it out alive. And sane.
Populated with characters that pose at the chasm that separates the real from the unreal, in prose that belongs to worlds not our own, Obsessed will snatch you from your comfort zone. None will ever guess the identity of the killer until the book chooses to reveal it.
