Harith Athreya is taking a well-earned break at a boutique hotel run by his friend in the Himalayan foothills. But his holiday is swiftly cut short when mysterious bloody handprints start appearing on the walls around the resort. When a woman then falls to her death, chaos and confusion reigns. Harith’s friend is convinced that the key to the case rests with four other young people who checked in at the same time as the victim, all pretending not to know each other – although this is seeming increasingly unlikely. Did one of these guests have something to do with it? Harith Athreya must get to the bottom of the case, before the murderer strikes again.
