The truth has never been this frightening.
ABOUT THE BOOK
When ten-year-old Sakshi goes missing from East Delhi, almost no one, including the police, seems too concerned. Not until a curious journalist begins to ask questions.
Soon, she cracks open a can of worms, and what started as an innocuous investigation into corruption and systemic apathy begins to reek of a larger and terrifying conspiracy, as chilling secrets and long-dead skeletons tumble out.
Pieced together using police reports, detailed interviews, leaked emails, WhatsApp conversations and much more, this extraordinary debut takes you from the bylanes of Delhi and the communist bunkers of Russia to the frozen grounds of Antarctica, following a trail that will leave you questioning what is real and what isn’t.
Set in the breathless and exhilarating world of investigative journalism, Cold Truth breaks the boundaries of conventional crime-writing to bring you something truly unique.
Open the book, read the evidence, and discover the Cold Truth.
