Conspirator: The Novel
– A YOUNG REPORTER dies a dramatic death.
– A VETERAN JOURNALIST investigating paid news is murdered in his hotel room.
– A BUSINESS TYCOON tries to seize control of a large media group.
In the midst of a private party hosted by a media mogul in Coorg, murder strikes, sending shockwaves through its influential guests.
When Inspector Dhruvi Kishore arrives at the scene, she finds, to her consternation, that some of her suspects – prominent politicians, businessmen, a blackmailer and a purveyor of fake news – have fled. She pursues them to Delhi, only to find herself drawn into the bewildering world of fake news, paid news and tailored news. Fighting forces trying to shut down her investigation, Dhruvi struggles to weed out the truth from a web of well-constructed lies before time runs out.
Revealing a world where ethics are scarce and lucre is abundant, Conspirator weaves a thrilling tale about how the people who uncover others’ secrets often have the most to hide.
Conspirator is the fourth novel in RV Raman’s corporate thriller series that explores white-collar crime in India.
