An evil criminal boss named Kalidas is hellbent on acquiring India's arsenal of nuclear weapons in the hope of delegitimizing its government and plummeting the continent into civil war. Twin siblings Alex and Jason, one ninja, and an "elite ex commando" are all who stand between Kalidas and his plans for nuclear catastrophe. That's the pitch for Blood Bath, a new novel from Ray Rao. The writer currently lives in Pittsburgh but went to school at the Armed Forces Medical College in India and has worked as a professor and physician there, as well as in England, Japan and the U.S. Seems like a solid resume to write a novel about international intrigue. Rao discusses Blood Bath at Mystery Lovers Bookshop, where copies are available for purchase.
