Ode to Broken Things

On a humid tropical night, Colonel S straps explosives to the mistress of a senior Malay minister and presses the detonator. American professor Jay Ghosh, who owes Colonel S a blood debt, is summoned back to Malaysia and to Agni, the daughter of his childhood romantic obsession. Jay realises, as does Agni, that nothing is as it seems and each must race against time to fight their personal demons for there are greater things at stake. A fast-paced literary thriller that pits the forces of tradition against globalization, faith against conservatism, and diversity against discrimination to paint the portrait of a modern nation wavering at the brink of terror…
