Reviews of

"A socialite thriller with diamond-dripping and Birkin-bearing ladies."
India Today
"A perfectly enjoyable read that focuses completely around Indian art."
Bangalore Mirror
"All about art and crime in high-end society. The drab world of brushes and strokes springs to life, mainly because of the energy levels of the now-confused-now-determined protagonist Tara."
Deccan Herald
"A fast-paced thriller in the dizzying backdrop of Indian art; the engrossing crime tale is deceptively woven around a frantic chase for trophy art."
The Arts Trust
"Set mostly in urban India, the fast-paced entertainer is a reverse-migration story. It gives an insider's view of the art world and takes you through the world of elusive artistes, gallery owners, art auctions and explores art writing and criticism in true settings."
The Hindu
"Written in a fluid yet literary language, it is about the scintillating, almost-glass world of the Mumbai elite and the glitterati. At a more macro level, it is a commentary on fast-changing India and about the multiple realities in our lives."
Deccan Herald
"The racy tale tracks down a fake Amrita Sher-Gil painting, with exciting traps laid out for the leading character, a diamond-dripping lady of leisure."
Indian Express
"A cross between chick-lit and crime thriller."
