“Even as he began speaking, he knew he was committing the biggest mistake husbands often made. “What are you thinking?” Her eyes slowly turned to him, still deep in thought. Then she pushed the newspaper towards him gently. “I want you to read this article,” she said, pointing at a column.”
Salil Desai, The Murder of Sonia Raikkonen

Salil Desai Thanks Mukesh. Yes I am working on a new one. Hopefully, it will be out late next year.


Mukesh Kumar Thanks for accepting the friend request! I am a fan of your Saralkar-Motkar series novels. So, are you working on a new one? Any expected dates, if not to much to ask :)
