Description

About the Book :

Guru, an end-stage cancer patient, comes to a quiet medical campus and quickly befriends his host’s friends and neighbours, his warmth and sympathetic manner encouraging them to confide in him. Out of these conversations emerges a name— Prabhakar Tambe—which spreads a pall of uneasiness over the doctors and triggers a chain of events that leads to catastrophic results.

Rumours start to fly, old tensions and rivalries between colleagues and friends resurface, and every family on the campus is caught in a web of suspicion. Within weeks, two people die in mysterious circumstances and it seems that life will never be the same again for the doctors and their families.

Selling Points :

• A first-of-its-kind event in Indian publishing—a gripping murder mystery done in a literary style.
• A short but powerful novel that can be read briskly. It will appeal to readers of crime as well as literary fiction.
• The author, Shashi Deshpande, has been on the forefront of Indian literature for more than a quarter of a century.
• With intricate subplots, If I Die Today is not only suspenseful but also rewards serious readers with psychological and social insights.
