Says Moitrayee, “I enjoy reading crime thrillers, especially murder mysteries. I love epic characters like Sherlock Holmes, Miss Marple, Feluda, and Byomkesh Bakshi. Since I wanted to read more Indian detective stories with women protagonists, I decided to write one. Private detective Mili Ray is a character that today's youth will identify with and look up to. She is not a superwoman - but she makes a difference with her intelligence and courage. She has an uncanny ability to solve twisted cases.”

The Sinister Silence – A Brief Overview
When ace software engineer Saahil is found battling for his life on a rainy morning, it looks like a case of attempted suicide. However, Saahil's family strongly denies that possibility and calls in ex-supercop-turned-private detective Mili Ray to investigate. While doctors are uncertain about Saahil's survival, the police discover the blood-soaked body of Saahil's colleague Farzad. Why are IT engineers being targeted? Is there a link between these ghastly attacks and Saahil's cutting-edge invention – the PA software? Ray and her team – Advocate Gatha and ex-army officer Anubhav – dive into this case, which is turning murkier by the hour.
Unaware that a conniving assassin is stalking her, Ray races towards a dangerous trap while murderous attacks continue to haunt the IT world. Who is behind these assaults – a jealous co-worker, an IT kingpin, an estranged friend, or someone else? With the killer on the loose, Ray's credibility is at stake. Will she be able to crack this case?
An assortment of love, friendship, and deceit, The Sinister Silence promises to be a gripping, action-packed suspense thriller.
