The Dead Came Calling

by Ndũcũ wa Ngũgĩ

When an Indian businessman, Vishal Mehta, is found murdered inside his garage in Tigoni, Limuru, Jack Chidi, an investigative reporter with The Daily Grind is called in to investigate. Jack has no idea why Mehta’s wife, Anarupa Mehta, has decided to call him. She informs him that it was Mehta, who had asked her to call him should anything happen to him, a few weeks before his death, signalling that he knew his life was in danger. Who would want him dead? And why?

The only way to get to the bottom of this is to dig deep into Mehta’s business dealings and the secrecy surrounding the Mehtas. It is a murder case that will take him all the way to Texas, USA, and back in search of the killer or killers. In the process, he exposes major international sex-trafficking ring, prostitution and corruption here and abroad. Jack is determined to find out who killed Mehta, a quest that puts his life in danger. Can he solve the case before they get him?
