About the book: An explosion brings down the orphanage that is home to Battees. Buried in the debris, he realises that something impossible has happened. Someone has got inside his head. It’s Goongi who cannot speak. Battees identifies the terrorist who blew up the orphanage and he obviously wants the only eyewitness dead. Goongi becomes Battees’s companion as they plunge into a mad adventure—an encounter with the Eunuch Queen, being captured by the Beggar King and seeing the dirty underbelly of Mumbai city. Does Battees manage to save himself from the terrorist and bring him to justice? Will Goongi ever be able to speak? They must find a way out of this dangerous cat-and-mouse game.
