Thank you to Digital Reads Blog Tours for having me on the tour for Tied to Deceit!
On a drizzly August morning, the inhabitants of the hill town of Sanover, Himachal Pradesh, wake up to the shocking news of the murder of the exquisite, secretive, malicious, and thoroughly immoral Devika Singh.
As Superintendent of Police Vishwanath Sharma begins to sift through the hidden secrets of Devika Singh’s life, it becomes evident that everyone who knew her seems to have a clear-cut motive for killing her. Faced with the investigation of a crime that appears to have as many suspects as there are motives, Vishwanath Sharma probes the sinister web spun around a tangle of lies and deception.

I have to admit that I was a bit hesitant going into Tied to Deceit, but I enjoyed it! It was a slow burning mystery that had me guessing that multiple people were the killer. I found that the novel and guessing the killer was like a game of Clue – it was person x because of this reason, no wait it was person y because of that!
I haven’t read too many Indian novels, so it did take me a bit to get into all of the different Indian names. Also at times, I found myself getting a bit lost in the story since I found it hard to tell who Superintendent Sharma was interviewing.
3 calculators out of a potential 5. If the plot sounds interesting to you, then I would recommend reading it. I will be looking out for Brar’s future novels!
Neena H. Brar lives in Edmonton, Canada with her husband, two children, a highly energetic German Shepherd, and a lifetime collection of her favourite books.
A hermit at heart, she’s a permissive mother, a reluctant housekeeper, a superb cook, and a hard-core reader.
Tied to Deceit is her debut novel.
