I finished reading Song of Kali by Dan Simmons last night. I polished the book off in less than 48 hours. Not only was it a quick read, the suspense kept me up late turning the pages to find out what would happen next.
Set in India in the late 1970s, the story is about a journalist sent to Calcutta with his wife and baby daughter. His mission is to pick up a new manuscript by a famous Indian poet who was thought missing for the last 8 years.
To give away more, I fear, would ruin the story. What I enjoyed most about the book was the suspense, mystery and terror that seemed to be lurking just on the next page. If you enjoy Stephen King novels and other tales of suspense, I would recommend reading this book.
