About the event

Bestselling crime fiction author Vaseem Khan takes us on an exhilarating journey from the last days of the Raj to the heart of modern India.

He will examine the setting of his new novel, The Dying Day, in 1950s Bombay, just a few years after Indian independence, the assassination of Gandhi, and the horrors of Partition. He will also discuss one of the world’s great treasures, a 600-year-old copy of Dante’s The Divine Comedy, which is stored at Bombay’s Asiatic Society and vanishes at the start of The Dying Day, leaving behind a trail of cryptic riddles and dead bodies. The first book in the series, Midnight at Malabar House, won the Crime Writers Association Historical Dagger in 2021, and introduced us to India’s first female police detective, and her co-investigator, an English forensic scientist.
