Indian Noir is the home of fast-paced, edge of your seat crime thrillers set in India, featuring Indian characters. Each season will feature a new story where heroes will fight against all odds and race against a ticking clock to save the day and blow your mind. These plot-heavy audio stories will have enough back-story and characterisation to deliver memorable heroes and allies and villains, but the focus will always be on delivering a roller-coaster ride of action and thrills.

Indian Noir is written, narrated and produced by Commonwealth Short Story Prize and DWL Story Prize winning writer Nikesh Murali. Nikesh has received honourable mentions for the Katha Short Story Prize twice and has been nominated twice for Townsville Arts Award in Writing.

Nikesh is the author of a multi award winning, Amazon bestselling short story collection 'The Killing fields'. His novel 'His Night Begins', which was praised by Crime Fiction Lover magazine for its 'terse action scenes and brutal energy', was released to critical acclaim and earned him the tag of the 'most hardboiled of Indian crime writers' from World Literature Today Journal.

Nikesh is an internationally acclaimed spoken poetry artist and reads the poetry of the some of the greatest poets of this generation on twitter (@_nikeshmurali) and instagram (@thewordmanifesto). His poetry was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2007.
