Sandeep and his younger brother, Manish, are not looking forward to spending three months in the remote, Internet-challenged hill station of Pahadpur, especially under the eagle eye of their military-minded great aunt. Apart from taking care of their kid sister, Chubs, who has a tendency to wander off on her own, the boys have absolutely nothing to do in the holidays. But there is more to Pahadpur than meets the eye. Sandeep and Manish discover that the neighbours next door, at Falcon Heights, are shunned and called ‘lepers’ by all the townsfolk. Who is the sullen, mysterious girl who lives there and flies a falcon every morning? Why do perfectly respectable citizens get up and leave, muttering darkly,every time she enters a shop or cafe? As Sandeep unravels the mystery, two terrible but seemingly plausible stories emerge, only one of which can be true.
