Review

‘Unexpected delights await on every page of Ram Murali’s impressive and captivating debut. Crisp as a gin and tonic and delightfully wicked, this smart, smart novel delivers a sophisticated, subversive murder mystery set in the highest stratosphere of the international idle rich. I had to force myself not to binge it in one night so I could savor it like the rare and exquisite meal that it is.’ -- Kevin Kwan, author of Crazy Rich Asians

'Glamorous, gripping, absolutely heaps of fun. I loved this.' - Lucy Foley, New York Times bestselling author of The Guest List and The Paris Apartment

‘A warm broth of Golden Age mystery (both Agatha Christie and Richard Osman would be proud), contemporary comedy (think Crazy Rich Asians), and some nameless secret ingredient all Ram Murali's own. Evocative, provocative, and very, very fun.’ - A.J. Finn, author of The Woman in the Window

'A stunning, sophisticated, scalpel-sharp murder mystery. Powerful, fun, and hugely rewarding. Immensely impressive.' - Chris Whitaker, New York Times bestselling author of We Begin at the End and All the Colors of the Dark

‘Murder most rich. International and humorous at just the right time, Death in the Air will set you soaring, drinking, and guessing all the way to the last page.’ - Ridley Pearson, a New York Times bestselling author.

'A romp of a whodunit, poking fun at the über wealthy whilst calmly meditating on both the horror of Partition and identity in a globalized world. I rattled through it. Ro is a very charming lead character indeed!' - Charlotte Vassell, author of The Other Half.

'Littered with designer jewellery, accessories and activewear, Death in the Air fizzes with ambition, managing to be both showy and subversive, operating as it does around the axis of Partition . . . Although it carries many of the hallmarks of an Agatha Christie-style murder mystery, what sets Death in the Air apart, leading to its unique conclusion, is its rejection of Western norms of justice and spirituality. The result is a fun, thought-provoking book-a commentary on greed, cultural appropriation and the peculiar malaise of the wealthy-a daring début.' - Nii Ayikwei Parkes, author of Azúcar and Tail of the Blue Bird.
