Six Suspects

Производитель: "Transworld Publishers"

There`s a caste system even in murder. Seven years ago, Vivek`Vicky`Rai, the playboy son of Cabinet Minister, murdered Ruby Gill at a trendy restaurant in New Delhi simply because she refused to serve him a drink. Now Vicky Rai is dead, killed at his farmhouse at a party he had thrown to celebrate his acquittal. Six guests are discovered with guns in their possession - and each one is equally likely to have pulled the trigger. Who are these six suspects? And what were they doing in the farmhouse that night? In this elaborate mystery, we join Arun Advani, India`s best-known investigative journalist, as the lives of these six suspects unravel before our eyes. Ingeniously plotted,`Six Suspects`is the work of a master storyteller.
