About this title

Synopsis:

Enchanted by stories of mysticism, American journalist Christine Jones goes to India in search of enlightenment. Almost immediately she is implicated in a crime, and later accused of being a terrorist with Pakistani connections.

Still seeking spiritual guidance, but also trying to understand the region's corrupt politics and survive the parched climate, Christine befriends Raj, a suspected criminal. She sets off with him to find an ashram, or community of mystics, following a path that leads to a series of mysterious events. Christine's search for transcendence takes several very wrong turns into drug use, police power games, tantric love and emotional blackmail as the mystics she encounters pursue the ultimate aphrodisiac. When the state administration collapses, Christine finds herself in the middle of a police raid as ideals and illusions about "self-knowledge" come crashing down around her naive head.

About the Author:

This intriguing and exciting novel exposes the greed and ruthlessness of those who prey on innocent victims. A thrilling backdrop of terrorism gives Christine's story a very contemporary feel. The author, born and raised in India, has published three books in Malayalam, his native language; The Monsoon Mystic is his first novel in English.
