      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product

      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Description

    The dead don't speak. But sometimes they leave a trail. Andy Karan, an investigative journalist, is tasked to probe one such the death of a local lawyer. As he begins to unravel the past, within days, he discovers a shadowy parallel life in the village. Instances dont add up and he is quick to realize that there are many loose ends around the drunkards death. And connections reach far and wide to Mumbai, Murud Janjira island and even the high seas off the western seaboard.
    But Andy ends up grievously wounded. His new found love Monica's life is in danger too.

    Catching the Departed is a story of a honest investigative journalist who is caught between state sponsored retribution of two warring nations and politicians who wouldnt stop at anything, not even the end of the world. And he is all of 30 patriotic, vulnerable and expendable. Attributes that cant guarantee his survival.

    Captivating and Scintillating!!

    Kulpreet ji
    I completed reading your book yesterday. I enjoyed it.
    It's like watching a Hollywood movie with some India masala.
    Keen to know what will be his next mission.
    Will he be more technically advanced or not?
    Will he be able to come over her gf death?
    Your writing, every word I enjoyed.
    For the first time, I read a book in less than month's time.
    Hats off to your creativity.

    A winner.....Andy Karan..

    I had two books for this long week end. One was the award winning ‘Chronicles of the Corpse Bearer’ and the other one ‘Catching the departed’, third book from Kulpreet Yadav. It seemed he has really departed from his other two books. This was really a winner for me instead of the shortlist of Hatchette. Recently I have read one detective book Lee childs Jack Reacher thriller. It will not be an exaggeration if I say, I could not really feel the difference between the Lee’s and Kulpreet’s writi...

    Good beginning, mediocre in the middle, mediocre end

    The book began with almost perfect descriptions. The author created very believable characters and the style of writing was impeccable. In the middle somewhere, it seemed like the author was falling out of love with his own character Andy Karan. A few events started sounding repetitive and then in the end too, there was not much of a detective's job left to be done. Pure brawns somehow seemed to be the protagonist's only weapon.

    The promise of the book is too huge though to dismiss the auth...

    A complete package of thriller, romance and suspense

    I had a pleasure to have this book signed by the author himself. As Kulpreet sir had promised, this book turned out to be an entertaining read packed with emotion, suspense and romance. The plot of the story is excellent.......I don't know why Indian are obsessed with foreign authors when we have brilliant authors in our country too.

    Packed with suspense, romance, patriotism and most of all thrill...A must read!

    A bang on thriller that keeps you on the edge and involved throughout. The characters are well described and come out pretty clearly. The narration and the Indian-ness of the backdrop is engaging. Looking forward to the second part of the trilogy.

    Great Summary. Not so great novel!

    The summary of the book was very captivating. That prompted me to contact the author for a review copy. However, the story did not live up to expectations.

    The author tried very hard to write a gripping mystery. The attempt was very clearly visible throughout the book. The descriptions were a bit too much, but not something which will bother you. The story is passable. It is definitely not bad, but it is also not as great as the summary gives.

    Andy Karan is a journalist who has retired from...
