The book revolves around the life of Ahi Chatterjee, a young girl in her 20s and the daughter of Director General of Kolkata Police, Dhritiman Chatterjee. Ahi owns a Publishing house named Ankur and has only succeeded in publishing a few works of debutant authors. But her life undergoes turmoil when she receives a manuscript from a well-known author Devang Awasthi who committeed suicide a few months back. The pages describe the personal life of Devang Awasthi filled with crimes and confessions. But if Devang Awasthi is dead then who has sent the manuscript? What is his motive behind publishing the autobiography? And why he selected Ahi’s Ankur?
Ahi determined to publish the manuscript visits Devang’s family in Delhi to get their consent where she meets ACP Abhimanyu Rathore who knows that something fishy is going on in Awasti Nivas and is on a constant look out for any clue, so he decides to help Ahi in her journey to find out who killed Devang Awasthi.
