Writer's Side is delighted to announce the sale of Arjun Raj Gaind's Pucca Murder Trilogy to HarperCollins India. 


It's 1909. Deep in the hinterland of the Punjab, in the small princely state of Rajpore, the British Resident, Major William Russell, is found dead.

The Maharaja of Rajpore, Sikander Singh, who has a keen passion for mysteries and fancies himself somewhat of a detective, rushes to the Residency to investigate the scene of the crime, and concludes that the Major was poisoned.

Now, Sikander must race against the clock to deduce who murdered Major Russell,  a bewildering chase as he uncovers twist after twist,  all leading towards a staggeringly unexpected denouement.
