Saboteur: The Novel
“So, what makes it a crackerjack plot? Take e-commerce, venture funding, data theft and bots, and blend all that with a female cop on a Royal Enfield out to solve a murder.”
“Inspector Dhruvi Kishore isn’t the cliched choice for a woman character, and throughout the narrative, she doesn’t fail to stand true to her bold character.”
— Hindustan Times.
“What makes Saboteur so fascinatingly readable are the insights it offers into the world of e-commerce.”
“Raman combines fact with fiction to spin a compulsively readable yarn.”
— Deccan Herald.
In a world of stratospheric valuations … where bots mimic humans in Bangalore as men risk millions in Hong Kong … something is not quite right
– AN E-COMMERCE FIRM finds itself targeted by corporate espionage
– A PROSPECTIVE INVESTOR vanishes without a trace
– A KEY EMPLOYEE is murdered in cold blood
MyMagicHat, a high-value, supercharged Bangalore-based e-tailer is on the verge of an unprecedented gamble when suddenly, things start going awry. The company unexpectedly runs out of cash and, to make matters worse, a massive data theft follows. A critical funding round is stalled.
Is someone trying to kill MyMagicHat?
When Inspector Dhruvi Kishore is brought in to investigate, she finds that in the dog-eat-dog world of e-tailing, crime too, is driven by technology. Hidden in the mountains of data and unverified claims lie clues to a massive fraud – one that justifies anything. Even murder.
Saboteur is the third novel in RV Raman’s corporate thriller series that explores white-collar crime in India.
