All deaths are not equal. There’s a caste system – even in murder....
The debut novel of Indian diplomat, Vikas Swarup’s was made into Oscar winning film SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. It was also turned into a rather good radio serial “Q&A”, first heard here on Radio 4. Now the team behind the Sony award-winning “Q&A” has gone to work on Swarup’s second novel – SIX SUSPECTS. Inspired by a true story, it’s a murder mystery set in modern day India… presented by investigative journalist, Arun Advani.
He is following the story of Vicky Rai, a nasty trust fund baby who shoots a waitress for not serving him a drink. Across the ten episodes, Arun weaves a tale of the lives Vicky Rai has destroyed as he tries to solve the murder of a murderer.
