Magnus Larsen is a young American yearning for home when a strange series of events brings him face to face with a charismatic guru. A dynamic friendship ensues, and Magnus is drawn into an intrigue that exhilarates and terrifies him. Devon Clarke, a man with a tortured past, has reinvented himself as the guru Dadaram, and his plan for his own spiritual redemption is brutal. He uses Anna, a beautiful and obedient devotee, to ensnare Magnus in a scheme that tears his life apart, and leads him on an obsessive, murderous pursuit throughout Southeast Asia. A tale of murder and revenge wrapped in layers of mystery, it's also an epic odyssey of the spirit that brings Magnus to a shocking conclusion. "...shining example of literary brilliance ... A rich, entertaining read ... a book that readers will not easily put down." Lisa Brown-Gilbert, Hollywood Book Reviews (from the 5 Star Review) "A brilliant and complex literary thriller ... DEATH OF A GURU is one that you simply can't miss." Michael Gardiner, Penn Book Review "A startlingly well-written, fast-paced and exciting novel with a heightened emotional tension and a poetic, noir-like prose that lends the book an ambitious, propulsive pace - not to mention a plot twist that lingers even after the final denouement has played out."
