Kashmir Blues

Naia, looking for her birth family in India after the bizarre death of her parents in Southern California. Leon, photographer, who cannot resist a chance to put his life in danger, whether from dysentery or bullet wounds. Samaad, Kashmiri, fighting to save a piece of his homeland from destruction by the two countries on either side of it, and who may well be the enabler of Leon’s self-destructive visions.

For them, and for the reader, Kashmir Blues is an unexpected journey – the atmospheric streets of Bombay and Delhi, the valley of flowers, guns, Shiva, carpets, sapphire mines, addiction, and, love and death.
