New Delhi, May 1 (IANS) A debut crime fiction by the senior executive in a multi-billion dollar organisation, who writes under the pseudonym Elijah Brahms, is set to hit the stores in India soon, the publisher said.
Published by HarperCollins India, “The Billionaire’s Funeral” is a “fiction debut that cuts real close to the underbelly of big finance”.
The story begins with billionaire investor Chad Cohen who is at a London restaurant where all his credit cards are declined.
He is then accused of travelling on a stolen passport and put in jail.
“His reputation in shreds, the company he so painstakingly built comes under threat. The stocks plummet and the board of directors decides to fire Chad,” reads the book’s synopsis.
In the website elijahbrahms.com, the author says, “‘The Billionaire’s Funeral’ is the kind of story I wanted to tell but do so quietly. So I took up the pseudonym Elijah Brahms rather than my usual name under which I’ve published more than ten books. Now, Elijah Brahms is not meant to sound prophetic or musical, just cool.”
Priced at Rs 299, the 264-page crime thriller will be out on May 25.
