It was stories of the supernatural on the winding drive to the little himalayan town of Bhairavgarh that had made him uneasy. But what Anant's holiday finally serves up is something all too real, and infinitely more disturbing. When Anant is invited to Bhairavgarh by his employer, the maverick New Delhi criminal court judge Justice Harish Shinde, the young law clerk looks forward to a peaceful stay at the Judge's friend's home. It isn't to be. Only days after he arrives, the tranquil hill-town is transformed into a seething hotbed of hostility. The cause is a controversial report on AIDS authored by Mittals, fellow guests at the house of Shikhar Pant. Small town morality wrestles big city urbanity as the people of Bhairavgarh protest against the report's alleged obscenity. But within the house too, loyalties are divided. Matters come to a head when Pant's cousin - a famous writer and supporter of the Mittals - is discovered stabbed to death. But with the police chasing all the wrong leads it's up to the Judge to track down the murderer. Soon Anant finds himself legal counsel for the Mittals and an assistant sleuth to the Judge. His quiet holiday is going to be anything but. A brilliant literary thriller from a debut author, A Nice Quiet Holiday is a thoughtful, pacy, unputdownable read!
