Launched a decade ago, New York’s Felony & Mayhem Press offers the best in intelligent mystery fiction, reprinting hundreds of out-of-print titles for fans of page-turners and whodunnits.
Season of the Monsoon — first published in 1993 — is one of these thrillers.
The first in a three-part series, this Paul Mann-penned mystery follows the fictional adventures of Inspector George Sansi, a Bombay police detective who’s used to struggling for order in one of the world’s most exuberantly chaotic cities. But a mutilated corpse discovered in Bollywood taxes even Sansi’s formidable skills.
Could the murder have been a cult initiation gone hideously wrong? Was it the work of a serial killer? Was the victim killed as part of a political cover-up?
Answering these questions will take Sansi from Bombay’s teeming slums to the film community’s palaces of excess and the menacing haunts of India’s underworld. It will uncover a vast web of corruption that stretches from the powerful to the utterly powerless. And it will leave Sansi running for his life.

About Felony & Mayhem Press:
Felony & Mayhem Press (F&M) recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. Founder Maggie Topkis owned a mystery bookshop in NYC’s Greenwich Village for nearly 20 years, and F&M is a direct descendant of that store. She loves the press — and is thrilled to bring back into print many books that had wrongly been disappeared from bookshelves — but she misses making recommendations to readers. She’s proud to note that F&M has had four books shortlisted for the Edgar Award (the Oscars of the mystery-world), and is delighted to have more than 300 titles in print.
