A Detective Dhruv Mystery

Three suicides. An eerie piano symphony- the last thing they hear.

One tune. Three listeners. Three grisly suicides. The melody – an eerie piano symphony – is the last thing they hear.

Leading an unremarkable existence in the sleepy town of Manali, Private Detective Dhruv is jolted into the heart of this case when he is hired by Misha, daughter of the first victim, Raina Awasthi.

As he delves deeper into the mystery, threats against his life begin to multiply. It’s soon clear that he is dealing with a conspiracy that goes far beyond suicides and murders, and that there is more at stake here than just his life. The shadows are closing in, and Dhruv is all that stands in their way.
