Constructed around the true Nanavati murder case, Indra Sinha's first novel offers a rare and fascinating insight into the psychosexual undercurrents of Indian life.

When an Anglo-Indian love triangle ended in murder, it sent shockwaves through 1950s Bombay. The Nanavati trial split Indian high-society, its effects reaching as far as the Nehru government. In modern-day London, Bhalu's dying mother leaves him a trunk of letters and a mystery: was there a second crime connected with the murder, one that has gone untold and unpunished, but that has shaped the lives of Bhalu and his family? Together with his childhood friend Phoebe, Bhalu returns to India to discover the truth, and write the last chapter of The Death of Mr Love.
