Ramola withdrew from the public eye at the peak of her stardom, choosing a life of quiet anonymity over the glamour of the silver screen. Surrounded by retired couples spending their twilight years gardening and gossiping, Ramola's life is idyllic.
Or at least it was, till the night of her birthday party, when she announces that her tell-all memoir will soon be published. The book, documenting her rise to fame, puts each of her ex-lovers' careers in jeopardy. As each desperate man tries to save himself, Ramola is drawn back into the very web of lies and deception she'd left behind.
And by the time the party is over, Ramola's neighbour, retired army officer and amateur sleuth Colonel Arjun H. Acharya has found his first murder to solve.
A Closetful of Skeletons reels you into a cosy world of fresh mountain air, long-drawn poker games and bloody murder.
