a Moral Murder

A foreign tourist encounters a retired judge in a secluded part of the Nilgiris, who narrates a remarkable tale of happenings long ago... A resident of Coonoor saves a panther cub, and mysterious incidents follow... Two college girls are the best of friends, until one fateful trip to Ooty changes it all...

A Moral Murder & Other Tales From The Blue Hills captures the magnificence of the Nilgiris in a way that very few authors can, a place that has thus far been relatively unsung in prose and verse, when compared to its northern counterparts. This book comprises ten exquisite tales - some poignant, some nail-biting, some heartbreakingly real; each of them carry to the reader, the essence of The Blue Hills, its beauty, its flaws and its magic. The book is previewed here.
