A call to all the lovers of fiction. A new book to relish is here!
Title: Fatal Fires - Dark before the Dawn [Book I]
In 1753, Ruckus Thawhorne, a British revenue officer, comes at midnight to the house of Ramabrahmam in Gandharva Kota. It is no ordinary counsel or favour that the officer seeks. In secret, the Brahmin journeys with him that night to destroy an unnatural 'evil'. On his death bed, five years later, he makes a sinister prediction to his son Madhavachary, that the evil may return, although its perpetrator a British clerk James Hill was deported to England.
In 1792, Madhachary's days go by, as did his father's, in rituals, family affairs and offering counsel to the villagers. He lives with his two sons and two daughters. Suddenly the forty year old events invade his life; his fears dead and buried return. He turns to his father's papers stashed in a casket. Madhavchary discovers an unnatural tale of evil and a mysterious discovery that led to its destruction - but - was it destroyed?
