There was another scream and another and then a terrible cry went up all along the ghats ... panic spread along the riverbank as people rushed to get out of the water. A lethal chemical spill kills thousands of pilgrims worshipping at a sacred Indian river. George Sansi is enticed by a dangerously seductive Government Minister to investigate the atrocity. An unscrupulous industrial tycoon will stop at nothing to cover his tracks ... The enigmatic George Sansi returns in a spellbinding novel of political intrigue, corporate greed and fierce passions.
