Some, like Sneha Sridhar, don't know what they do when, at times, they are overtaken by compulsive behaviours. At other times, they are normal folk like you and me in, “LET THE DEAD STAY DEAD,” my completed psychological novel, studded with suspense and intrigue, set in contemporary India. A brilliant scientist working on cutting edge research fights an ongoing battle with The Voices that seek to control her mind, goading her to take revenge on the lover who abandoned her. Having inherited more than just her mother’s beauty, she finds herself accused of a murder she wanted to but did not commit. When a man she mistook for someone else is murdered she is driven to seek refuge in a fugue state. Will she successfully battle the demons within her? But wait, all paranoid schizophrenics don’t behave in the same way.
