Neeraj Shah

The Reincarnation of Himmat Gupte

Born and raised just outside of Manchester, Neeraj Shah studied mathematics and natural sciences in Cambridge and Zurich. He spent nine years living and working across five continents. Inspired by his varied experiences, Neeraj likes to experiment with structure and style to bring colourful and surprising stories to life.

The murder of a corrupt businessman plunges Detective Himmat Gupte into a murky world filled with political maneuvering and dangerous mysticism. Under pressure and frustrated by the widespread injustice in India, he struggles to define and ultimately perform his duty.
