Tarun Tejpal presents The Story of My Assasins ($27.95). Based on actual events, this novel tells the story of a journalist who learns that the police have captured five hit men on their way to kill him. The news prompts him to launch an investigation into the lives of his aspiring murderers—a ragtag group of street thugs and village waifs—and their mastermind.
