As a reader, I’ve always found book covers fascinating.
They tell me a little about the story (or a lot), about the characters. Some are just so dang pretty. (I’ve been guilty of shallow purchases based on the cover art alone.)
So it is with trepidation that I introduce the cover of my debut novel, “You Beneath Your Skin,” published by Simon & Schuster IN
All my proceeds from the book go to Project WHY and Stop Acid Attacks. – Damyanti Biswas
Lies. Ambition. Family.
It’s a dark, smog-choked New Delhi winter. Indian American single mother Anjali Morgan juggles her job as a psychiatrist with caring for her autistic teenage son. She is in a long-standing affair with ambitious Police Commissioner Jatin Bhatt – an irresistible attraction that could destroy both their lives.
Jatin’s home life is falling apart: his handsome and charming son is not all he appears to be, and his wife has too much on her plate to pay attention to either husband or son. But Jatin refuses to listen to anyone, not even the sister to whom he is deeply attached.
Across the city there is a crime spree: slum women found stuffed in trash bags, faces and bodies disfigured by acid. And as events spiral out of control Anjali is horrifyingly at the centre of it all.
In a sordid world of poverty, misogyny, and political corruption, Jatin must make some hard choices. But what he unearths is only the tip of the iceberg.
Together with Anjali he must confront old wounds and uncover long-held secrets before it is too late.
