Paperback / Hardback

Sometimes in life, you get an opportunity that can make or break you. For Aakash, it comes in the form of a construction contract for the personal residence of Mr Khanna, a flamboyant, egocentric billionaire known for his eccentricities. In an eager bid to win the contract, Aakash desperately attempts to earn favour with Khanna’s beautiful and docile wife, Maya—a path that soon turns dangerous when they begin a secretive affair. With Maya’s help, Aakash inches closer to clinching the contract, but things spiral out of control when Aakash is faced with the prospect of Khanna’s murder.

Too late, Aakash realizes that Maya is not all she appears to be and finds himself in the midst of a cascading set of events that threaten to derail the lives of everyone forever. To escape from the clutches of the law, Aakash must race against time to uncover the secrets of the Khanna family. The labyrinthine road to the truth takes Aakash to the foundations of the Khanna mansion, beneath which lie years of buried secrets whose stench has finally come out in the open.

What is the price that Aakash must pay for his greed? Is he the player or the one being played?
