Writing a criminal thriller book is difficult. Adding too many elements can spoil the book while keeping few elements would not make the book count in that genre. I have been a fan of Indian thriller drama series CID as a kid and I enjoy reading such books. However, I do not like violence and do not let such things get over my head. I was hearing too many praises about this book and the book reached me.
Before sharing a brief about the story, I must say that it is an amazing book. The story revolves around Kansa, the child killer. (The name has been taken from Hindu mythological character) He is a child killer who has been mercilessly killing a number of pregnant women and their unborn children. The toll has reached over 40. He used to kidnap them and then murder them. ACP Saargi was given this case to find out this mysterious killer and stop these horrible events. With the help of Professor Black, the investigation and the case further proceeds. By connecting clues, they start moving closer to Kansa. You will have to read this book to find out.
Beginning with the narration of the book, it is amazing. The book is a fast-paced novel and a page-turner. It will be hard for you to put it down as there will be a constant question of “What next?” in your mind. The title is perfect because the mythological character, on which it is based, did similar crimes. I felt the cover is good but I felt that it was not suitable for the story because it does not give an indication that the story is a criminal one. The plot is amazing.
Strongly recommended if you like fast paced novels or thriller novels!
