Murder Under A Red Moon

Murder Under a Red Moon by Harini Nagendra is a thriller set in Bangalore in 1921. Amateur sleuth Kaveri Murthy agrees to investigate a minor crime involving her new husband’s family, just to please her demanding mother-in-law. But, when she stumbles across a murder, uncovering the truth may put her own life at risk. With the help of the Bangalore Detectives Club, a motley band of street urchins, ex-prostitutes, and a policeman’s wife, Kaveri races to uncover a web of secrets buried in the complex social world of Bangalore, at a moment when anger against the British colonizers is rising and a new, charismatic religious leader is emerging.
