The Sea of Innocence – Kishwar Desai

Goa, India.  A beautiful holiday hideaway where hippies and backpackers while away the hours.  But beneath the clear blue skies lies a dirty secret…

Simran Singh is desperate for a break and some time away from her busy job as a social worker-come-crime investigator.  And so the unspoilt idyll of Goa seems just the place – white beaches, blue seas and no crime.

But when a disturbing video appears on her phone, featuring a young girl being attacked by a group of men, she realises that a darkness festers at the heart of this supposed paradise.  And when she discovers out that the girl is Liza Kay, a British teenager who has gone missing, she knows she must act in order to save her.

But first Simran must break through the web of lies and dark connections that flourish on these beaches.  Everyone, it seems, knows what has happened to the girl but no one is prepared to say.  And when more videos appear, and Simran herself is targeted in order to keep her quiet, the paradise soon becomes a living nightmare.

Desai writes with admirable intensity about the plight of women in India today, keen to be western in attitude yet trapped in a hierarchical society.  All wrapped in a fine crime novel.
