Overview

A missing domestic-violence counselor. A wealthy and callous husband. A dangerous romance.

Kareena Sinha, an Indian-American domestic-violence counselor, disappears from her Seattle home. When the police dismiss suspicions that she herself was a victim of spousal abuse, her best friend, Mitra Basu, a young landscape designer, resolves to find her. Mitra’s search reveals glimpses of a secret life involving her friend and a Bollywood actor of ill repute. Following the trail, Mitra is lured back to India where she uncovers the actor’s ties to the Mumbai underworld and his financial difficulties – leading her into a web of life-threatening intrigue where Mitra can’t be sure of Kareena’s safety or her own.

“Mitra is gunpowder chutney to the mystery genre, her adventures a hot refreshing blast of sumptuous storytelling. Bharti Kirchner has once again conquered another literary field. Highly Addictive.”
-- Skye Moody, Author of the mystery novel Three Bags Full

"Tulip Season is an evocative taste of Seattle's darker side."
-- Cara Black, Author of the mystery novel Murder at the Lanterne Rouge

“A multi-layered mystery, Tulip Season, is carefully crafted.
-- Curt Colbert, Co-author of the upcoming mystery novel Dial 'C' for Chihuahua
