by | Read by Raj Ghatak

Fiction • 5.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

This fast-paced and deftly narrated medical thriller-cum-parable packs an emotional punch with a side of gore. Raj Ghatak narrates the story of a surgeon in rural India who one night is visited by a murdered family of three. The undead visitors come to the surgeon with a desperate request, and over the course of the long night, a series of decisions is made and secrets are revealed. The story is atmospheric and at times creepy. Paralkar plays up its mythological leanings while also commenting on social and political corruption. The characters are complex and compelling, and Ghatak deftly handles the large amount of dialogue. His captivating narration skillfully carries this visceral story.
