A gigantic bird returns from extinction.

Birds in Mumbai wearing jewels from a medieval kingdom.

A medieval kingdom that mysteriously collapsed 300 years ago.

When a giant bird, long thought to be extinct, makes a surprise visit to Mumbai, all hell breaks loose. Nobody has a clue where it came from or how it escaped human attention for centuries. Despite the initial shock, it doesn't take long for the bird to win over the hearts of Mumbai's people, who fondly nickname it 'The Bollywood Bird'. The investigations into the bird's origins had barely begun when the bird poops out a coin from a medieval kingdom that had mysteriously collapsed 300 years ago, adding another layer of suspense. The chaos ensues when birds wearing antique jewellery from the same kingdom start appearing randomly all over Mumbai.

Why did the medieval Indian kingdom suddenly disappear without a trace?

Were there any dark secrets buried in the graves of that once thriving civilisation?

Why did the birds start wearing the medieval jewels?

It is up to five ambitious individuals - Aman, Samantha, Tisha, Neil and Karan to answer these questions and unravel the clues as they set out on a quest to solve this mystery. Despite their individual aspirations and motives, they will need to come together and combine their unique strengths to join the pieces of this complex puzzle.

If you love a thrilling mystery, packed with sci-fi elements, suspense and adventure, you will love this fast-paced page-turner novel.
