THE DEVIL WITHIN

Best friends Ramya Chaudhary and Samar Sengupta vividly recall the Incident from four years ago when they’d killed two peers, decapitating one Sunil Desai—the school golden boy who’d secretly plagued the campus with drugs. Having graduated and relocated to the town of Chanakyanagar, Ramya is eager to move on, and enjoy the summer before college with Samar.

However, she doubts her guilt when Ashwin—Sunil’s father, her mathematics teacher, and mentor—goes missing in his pursuit of the Devil, Sunil’s faceless killer. Rescuing him could help prove her innocence, but it also means confronting what Ramya is desperate to forget.

The quest earns her more enemies than allies among others struggling to reconcile their own pasts: a vengeful lawyer, a crooked detective, and newfound friends with deep pockets and deeper secrets. With the Devil stoking the town’s malady entrenched in its turbulent history, the only way out could be letting another head roll.
