Mystery lovers, rejoice!
Can a mystical American detective solve the mysteries of India? . . . Bollywood Storm is an intricate, multicultural comedy in the form of a Bollywood Murder Mystery. With a dash of Kill Bill, this novel will not disappoint those readers expecting action; it’s also a profound meditation on self, identity, ego, intimacy, sensuality, spirituality, fame and obscurity, privilege and loss in both Eastern and Western frameworks; and it’s got the five song and dance numbers in it, too.
The mazza of the story unfolds in two Books, spanning two continents.
Elanna Forsythe George is a Boston born, New York forensic scientist who takes on only cold cases, stone cold dead cases. She solves mysteries in unusual ways with her accidentally acquired, para-mystical abilities. Her cases come to her a few years after high-powered mainstream investigations, police and legal proceedings have all failed, and there’s a dead end. But she doesn’t take every case.
Book I: New York
Elanna is hired by the Bollywood starlet, Simryn Gill, to reopen the case of Rajesh Sharma, a renowned Bollywood director who died supposedly from a heart attack two years previous. Although it appears a simple heart attack, there is no drama, no gossip, no controversy in the Bollywood media. Somewhere, in that odd conspicuous silence, Elanna smells a big rat.
