When the clever, stubborn Kaveri moved to Bengaluru to marry doctor Ramu, she resigned herself to a quiet, peaceful life.
However, all that peace goes out of the window on a fateful party night at the Century Club. Wishing to be on her own for a while, Kaveri goes out into the garden, where she runs into some uninvited guests in the shadows. Half an hour later, the party has become a murder scene.
After the crime is blamed on a helpless woman, Kaveri takes it upon herself to save the poor lady, launching a private investigation to zero in on the killer. She ends up tracing their steps from a well-known brothel to an Englishman’s mansion. It soon dawns on her that sleuthing in a sari isn’t as hard as it seems when you have a thing for math, an inclination toward logical thinking, and a doctor for a husband.
How Kaveri uses all this to her advantage as the case leads her deeper into a hotbed of danger, sedition and intrigue in Bengaluru’s darkest alleys is what Harini Nagendra’s The Bangalore Detectives Club is all about.
