Based on actual events, Tarun J. Tejpal’s The Story of My Assassins is about a journalist who learns that the police have captured five hit men on their way to kill him. The news prompts him to launch an urgent investigation into the lives of his aspiring murderers and their mastermind, and forces him to reexamine his own life. The novel is part thriller, part romance, and moves from India’s grand palaces to its seediest slums.
