The Kiss of Death
Jeffery Deaver | Hodder & Stoughton | Rs 695

In this ticking-clock thriller, Deaver looks at what it means to be a female celebrity singer being pursued by a stalker who believes that every song the singer has sung has been specially written for him. The price of fame in the modern world of invasive TV coverage and multimedia is much more than in the years Beatles came to India.

Deaver is an author of 29 novels, his latest is a James Bond novel, Carte Blanche published in May 2011.
