Buried
by Mark Billingham
"Teenager Luke Mullen is missing. He was last seen by schoolmates getting into a car with an older woman, and it is unclear whether he has disappeared voluntarily or been abducted." "Police looking For the boy are pretty certain they are dealing with a missing-persons case. The son of a former police officer. Luke has no history of being out of touch, no track record of truancy or misbehavior. And they know that the longer he is missing, the more likely he is to turn up dead. Then the videotape arrives ..." "On special assignment, Detective Inspector Tom Thorne searches desperately for the boy and for anyone who might have a grudge against him or his father, former detective Tony Mullen. As someone responsible for convicting many tough villains in his time, Luke's father is asked to list a few potential suspects. But it is the names Mullen carefully omits from the list that intrigue Thorne. Has Mullen simply forgotten about the criminal who threatened him.Is he so distraught in the emotional trauma of his son's disappearance Or is he hiding something?" "When the kidnapper demonstrates, shockingly, that he is not reluctant to kill, Thorne knows he does not have the luxury of time. He must dig hard and deep into old cases and past lives. He learns that secrets are as easily hidden as bodies, and that even if Luke Mullen is still alive, making assumptions is the quickest way to get him dead and buried."

Of Dreams
by Aditi Talwar Sodhi
"Of Dreams" is the story of Amrita, Aarti and Payal.

Rich and arrogant Amrita has lost her first love; pessimistic Aarti has lost her only chance to higher education and licentious go-getter Payal has lost her dignity. Of Dreams is the story of these three girls who stand disadvantaged at the threshold of adulthood.

As they journey ahead:

Amrita repeatedly allows herself to be manipulated but consequentially will she become the biggest manipulator.

Aarti keeps looking behind when she should be forging ahead, and

Payal tries desperately to erase her past but her future seems to be fading faster.

And who is Shaheen. Why does she bring these three estranged friends together after 17 years and what secrets is she going to reveal.

Of Dreams is a story of inner journeys set in an outer world of constraints and constrictions; deceit and manipulation....and love.

Of Dreams explores who and what people become as the life choices they make sweeps them onwards.

After Taste

After Taste
by Namita Devidayal
Diwali 1984. Mummyji, the matriarch of a prosperous mithai business family, lies comatose in a Bombay hospital. Manipulative, determined, and seemingly invincible, Mummyji has held together her family through bribes of money, endless food, and adoration.

Surrounding her are her four children: the weak and ineffectual Rajan Papa who is desperately in need of cash; Sunny, the dynamic head of the business with an ugly marriage and a demanding mistress; Suman, the spoilt beauty of the family who is determined to get her hands on Mummyji's best jewels; and Saroj, Suman?s unlucky sister, who has always lived in her shadow. Each one of them wants Mummyji to die.

Aftertaste tells the story of one business family and its bitter dynamics: of resentful bahus, emasculated sons, controlling mothers-in-law, and rapacious siblings. For at the heart of family lies money, not love. Full of rare period details and insights into the world of Baniya families, Aftertaste is worldly, astute, and utterly riveting.
