ABOUT THIS BOOK
The gentleman’s game will no longer be the same.
In Murder at Lord’s, different characters from the world of cricket—Indian boy wonder, Vinoo Ramji; English team’s manager, Alan Moorcombe; young and ambitious English reporter, Dick Anthony; Pakistani match-fixer and former hitman, Mohammed Musa; the English team’s captain and compulsive gambler, Michael Cookson, and its physiotherapist, Tony Abbott—cross paths in the shadowy world of match-fixing, a world ruled by syndicates whose sole purpose is luring players and coaches into their dangerous web of fear, deceit and greed. No one and nothing is off limits—whether it is the mysterious disappearance of a cricketer’s girlfriend or a murder at Lord’s.
A deadly cat-and-mouse game begins when a Scotland Yard detective sets out on this elusive crime trail. The quest to unmask the perpetrators takes the reader from the plush suburbs of London to the dark alleys of Mumbai.
As secrets lurk in the shrouds of violence, will justice prevail or will it be too late?
