There's a caste system - even in murder. Vicky Rai, notorious son of a prominent Indian politician, shoots dead a waitress at a trendy Delhi restaurant. Thanks to his mother pulling a few strings, he gets off scot-free. At a lavish society party to celebrate his acquittal he is himself murdered. Who did it? The Bollywood actress with a guilty secret; the American who came to India to marry his mail-order bride; the mobile-phone thief with big dreams; the tribesman on a quest to recover a stolen relic; or Vicky Rai's mother, a corrupt politician who will do anything to cling to power...? The police investigation gets nowhere and the murder of Vicky Rai promises to be yet another unsolved mystery in a country full of unsolved crimes. That is until India's leading investigative journalist, Arun Advani, steps in to tell the world the shocking truth. It's a story that takes us on an extraordinary journey into the heart of modern day India. It comes from the producers of the Sony Award-winning BBC Radio 4 drama Q&A.
