With a deadly pandemic reaching its peak across the country, the last thing Inspector Mona Ramteke, in Hyderabad training to be an ACP, wants is to be roped into a high-profile investigation. But when news arrives quite suddenly that four distinguished employees of a prominent media house have died in their office cabins on the same day, at around the same time, Mona is summoned to 'crack the case as soon as possible'.
As if the intrigue surrounding the deaths is not enough, Mona finds herself caught in the midst of political feuds, information leaks, conspiracy theories churned out by the media and corporate warfare. As baffling links surface between the crimes and cricket and a temple to Ayn Rand, the case begins to look murkier than any she's had to solve before.
Will Mona be able to untangle the knotty mystery before it's too late, and more bodies begin to surface?
