About the Author

Nilanjana Roy is a Delhi-based journalist, literary critic, editor and author. She has written and reviewed for numerous publications including the Guardian, New York Times and Huffington Post, and has a weekly column in the Financial Times, and her novel The Wildings was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize. Black River is Nilanjana's debut thriller. It grew out of her years of reporting on gender from New Delhi and the surrounding states for the New York Times, and from exploring the capital and the Yamuna river on long walks.


'A riveting murder mystery. A psychological thriller. A magnificent work of literary fiction' - Kiran Desai

'An elegy for India. Gorgeously written, utterly devastating, and feels completely true' - Sonia Faleiro, author of 'The Girl'

'A thrilling and riveting crime noir, written tenderly and elegantly' - The Hindu

'This emotionally engaging novel, less a "whodunit" than a "whydunit" is remarkable for the interiority of its characters... The compulsive pull lies in the slow burn of a leisurely paced plot' - Frontline

'The soul of a river, poured into a saga of fatherhood and crime... The thrillerish pace is tight [but] the prose is immersive enough for one to want to savour' - The Deccan Chronicle

'A new writer to shout about... Roy brings rural India and Delhi to life as much as she does her characters... Riveting' -Observer

'A novel that is on the one hand a wholly satisfying murder mystery, but which also employs the village of Teetarpur as a kind of India-in-microcosm... A powerful, immersive and unsentimental novel of modern India, Black River establishes Nilanjana Roy as a crime novelist with which to be reckoned' -Irish Times
