    In this darkly satirical novel, the protagonist, a war photographer with a penchant for exposing the brutal truths of his country's civil war, finds himself in the afterlife with no memory of how he died. Set against the backdrop of 1990s Sri Lanka, a nation ravaged by conflict, he is given a week to solve the mystery of his own death and to secure the safety of his carefully documented photographic evidence, which has the power to rock the country. With the help of some eccentric and otherworldly allies, he navigates the complexities of the afterlife, reflecting on themes of corruption, violence, and the cost of silence. The narrative is a compelling mix of humor, horror, and political commentary, offering a unique perspective on the impact of war and the importance of truth.
