Based on actual events, The Story of My Assassins tells the
story of a journalist who learns that the police have captured five hit men on
their way to kill him. Landing like a bombshell on his comfortable life, just
as he’s started a steamy affair with a brilliant woman, the news prompts him to
launch an urgent investigation into the lives of his aspiring murderers—a
ragtag group of street thugs and village waifs—and their mastermind. Who wanted
him dead, and why?
But the investigation forces him to reexamine his own life, too—to
confront his own notion of himself, his job, and his treatment of the women in
his life, as well as his own complex feelings about the country that crafted
his would-be killers.
Part thriller and part erotic romance, full of dark humor and
knife-edged suspense, The Story of My Assassins is a piercing literary
novel that takes us from the lavish, hedonistic palaces of India’s elite to its
seediest slums. It is a novel of corruption, passion, power, and ambition; of
extreme poverty and obscene wealth.
It is an awesome
adventure into the heart of today’s India. Download and start listening now!
