"An intensely gripping thriller with a compelling psychological component that is unusual in crime fiction."
- N. RAM, POLITICAL JOURNALIST AND CHAIRMAN OF THE HINDU PUBLISHING GROUP.
"A deeply moving and disturbing story that artfully brings to light the ills of trafficking and the trauma of abuse that women, especially the mentally challenged, face amid an emphasis on family honour among South Asian families in the UK."
- SUNETRA CHOUDHURY, AUTHOR & ANCHOR AT NDTV.
"I review a lot of books for HT City, but 'Victims For Sale', I felt was the first work of fiction in a long time that really had me interested till the end. The greatest achievement of 'Victims For Sale' is not only its discovery of an unheard-of epidemic in our midst, but the trust it invests in a young journalist who is herself teetering on the edge of a precipice. For a young woman with a bright future lying ahead, choices could be a lot safer. But then, it is the difficult and the perilous that the book deals with. Engaging, shocking, and liberating."
- PRANNAY PATHAK, EDITOR AT HINDUSTAN TIMES.
BBC journalist Sandy Raman had fled from a traumatic incident to begin a new life in the swinging city. During her first night here as a paying guest with the Sawants, she woke up to a woman with a knife … and a dark secret. An ominous stranger was found snooping on the Sawants’ home, weeks later. The family was clearly hiding something.
It is only after Sandy launches a sting operation on a South London facility that she joins the dots between an institute acting as a front for a sinister nexus and the odd family she lives with. It isn't long before Sandy finds herself running for her life and chasing the truth up a trail of brutal murders. She must expose the predators and step up to the deranged kingpin of a thriving racket. Before time runs out.
