“A thought-provoking tale.” — The Guardian (UK)

“Riveting, slow-burn murder mystery in which the new and the old India collide head on, as Desai’s ballsy, maverick, and thoroughly modern heroine, Simran Singh, reveals a shocking twist on one of India’s ugliest traditions.” — M. J. McGrath, author of White Heat

“We were thrilled and exhilarated by this stunning debut. Just like her feisty main character, Desai has fearlessly blown the lid on the problems that simmer under the surface of modern-day India.” — The Costa Award Judges

Witness the Night is an important novel with a compelling mystery at its heart. Simran Singh, in particular, is a terrific protagonist – the perfect guide on what is a dark and unsettling journey. Desai deserves a wide readership to go with the accolades she has already accumulated. This is a novel of genuine accomplishment.” — Simon Lelic, author of A Thousand Cuts and The Child Who

"Terrific." — The Telegraph (UK)
