Bombay Fever

Where did it come from? In the courtyard of a Hindu temple in Switzerland, a woman collapses in the arms of a visiting Indian journalist, her body reduced to a puddle of blood. It is unlike anything anyone has ever seen. How does it kill? Three months later, all over Mumbai, men, women and children are ravaged by a disease that strikes with deceptive mildness before swiftly condemning patients to a gruesome death. Who will it hit next? As the rogue microbe wreaks its bloody havoc—slaying rich and poor, young and old—chaos ensues. Thousands try to flee the city for their lives. Including the most powerful man in the country. Can it be stopped? All that stands between the city and apocalypse is a ragged team of doctors, civil servants and scientists. But is their intervention too little, too late? Bombay Fever is a meticulously researched work of fiction—too plausible to ignore and too chilling to put down—by one of India's most original writers.
