An international conspiracy thriller in the vein of The Parallax View— a Salman Rushdie-esque figure uses his latest novel to explain his own disappearance after a journalist's murder

Raj Chakraborti, internationally renowned novelist and commentator, has disappeared from public view. What's worse, the police want to question him about the murder of a young journalist. Raj claims to explain everything in chapters from his latest work of fiction about a serial-killer-turned-hired-assassin. Is Raj right to believe that he is being hunted, or is it his past that has finally borne down to haunt him?

"Shadow Play is ambitious and challenging metafiction.... It will fascinate readers who enjoy Haruki Murakami." - Booklist

Reviews

Praise for Shadow Play

"A teasing, haunting jigsaw puzzle, less a thriller than a provocative meditation on the intersection of fiction and memory." - Kirkus Review

"Confirms Chakraborti as an ambitious writer, bravely traversing vast spaces, literal and metaphysical, committed to developing original structures and ideas." - Edinburgh Review (UK)
