What’s better for a cosy read than a murder mystery in a hill station? Stephen Alter has written more than twenty books based on mountains and has been shortlisted for the DSC South Asian prize as well. Based in a quaint hill station of Debrakot, a retired police officer looks forward to spending a solitary life. Things go topsy turvy when he is asked by an ex colleague for help in a murder investigation. DIG Carmichael embarks on an edgy journey during monsoons in this hill station to find the culprit. Recommended as a pacy thriller as we have read Alter’s writing previously.
