Overview of the Book:
The abandoned Haveli in Bhramdev, a hill station near Mumbai, is known among the local population to be haunted. People keep away from it. A group of youngsters decide to use it for shooting a pilot for a reality TV series on ‘Haunted Houses’. What follows is a horrifying reality they do not live to relate.
Sanya Sharma is an investigative journalist, with a shattered life and a grieving past. Having lost her husband and little daughter within a span of six months, her once perfect life is a distant dream. Depressed, unable to concentrate on work and barely paying attention to her ten-year-old son, she takes help in alcohol and regular visits to her psychiatrist.
Unable to overlook her wary ways any more, her boss and old friend, gives her a last chance to get back and assigns her a case of mysterious deaths on a small hill station, a few hours from Mumbai. Sanya knows it is her only chance to redemption and delves into it. What follows is a series of mysterious, eerie, and horrifying events that Sanya cannot understand and finally with the help of a local police inspector turned friend, it dawns upon her that the haunted Haveli is not just small town hocus-pocus, but also a reality that had turned on her. The evil that she encounters slowly affects everything around her and she knows that it will finally consume her.
But why? What were the deep, dark secrets of the Haveli’s past? What was the Nawab family’s past? Who is the old woman haunting her? What are the cards and what is the card game? How is such a horrifying situation merely a game and how is she to play it? Why do the writings on the cards come true and people die? She has to find a way to save herself and her son from the evil and the game of cards that makes everything come true. People around her, are killed one- by-one making her wonder why she is spared. Will she play the final KHEL—The Writings—or will it be the evil that will end the game?
