ABOUT THIS BOOK

When Deputy Superintendent Om Prakash Agarwal of the Delhi Police dies in a shocking accident, startling revelations come to light: the clandestine manoeuvrings of the Great Leader who is at the centre of a complex web of politics, a bank fraud case which boggles the mind, and a Swami whose dark secrets tantalize the public. And when DSP Agarwal’s diary, which contains explosive official secrets, turns up missing, the administration goes into a frenzy.
Inspired by the events of the Emergency of 1975-1977, The Garland Keepers is an electrifying thriller from one of the most venerable names of Indian writing in English.
