A stylish, haunting retelling of The Ramayana brings dizzying new twists to a classic tale.

It has been ten years since Ram's return from the fallen island of Lanka. The city of Ayodhya is shining. It has prospered through the war. But darkness lurks at the heart of the victrorious regime. A pointed question piques a young journalist's curiousity: What happened to the beautiful Sita? Where is Ram's absent wife whose abduction triggered the war with Lanka?

And so begins one woman’s search for the missing queen. Soon her investigation attracts the notice of Ayodhya's all-powerful secret police and its mysterious head, the Washerman. Forced to flee Ayodhya, the journalist makes her way through a war-devastated Lanka in search of answers.

In this stylish speculative thriller, Samhita Arni skilfully combines a crafty retelling of mythology with a riveting potboiler.
