I enjoyed reading this book. When I watch some very good thriller movies, I want to skip the details in the first half especially (Although I won't skip any scenes but may not want to pay much focus) when I am really curious and I badly want to know the climax. Then I would want to re-watch the movie to really enjoy the little details. I did the same thing while reading the book. Thank you Chital for the book which made me sit through a long time. It was interesting to read your book as there were some interesting twists.

This is such a grasping story line which has the ability to hold you till you finish the last page and still keep thinking about it. The story has its own flavour which keeps you engaged throughout, loved the way it has been presented.

With shades of Agatha Christie , Chital spins a beautiful murder mystery set in Chennai. Her narrative of each scene is splendid and evokes one’s memories of Chennai. All in all a really great read.
