DAKHMA – A Novel


A new city. A new home. A new life. Things seem perfect … for a while.

A pregnant Anahita moves in to an apartment in Malabar Hill with her husband, eager to begin a new phase in her life. Unfortunately, nothing goes as expected and Anahita begins to witness things she cannot explain.

It’s not long before a presence makes itself known in their new home. Appearing after dark the strange apparition leaves Anahita terrified – but determined to find answers. Her search leads to Parizaad: a woman who was haunted by phenomena she believed to be linked to a tower of silence, or dakhma, that is deeply affected by environmental changes.

As Anahita wades further into the mystery around the life and death of Parizaad, she uncovers a devastating secret – one that goes beyond nightmares and corpses.

A spine-chilling psychological thriller, Dakhma brings horror to the heart of the big city.
