A ruthless killer is on the loose. He has openly challenged the police to catch him. The reputation of the Hyderabad Police is in tatters. The psychopath is roaming freely across Hyderabad killing indiscriminately. Or is there a method in this madness? Who are these victims and why they have been selected by the murderer? ACP Gopi Reddy ropes in good friend Vikram Rana to help him. As Gopi Reddy admits, 'Random killers are the hardest criminals to catch.' But to Vikram Rana something about these brutal incidences does not ring true and these crimes seem to be related…. Will Vikram and ACP Reddy be able to prevent another murder in this race against time before this monster strikes again? FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
The one must have for a murder mystery is suspense and A Season for Dying is loaded with it! I loved the story and its many twists. It’s definitely worthy of the mystery genre! I love the process of solving the murders as much as the game the killer is playing. I strongly recommend A Season for Dying, by Sharmishtha Shenoy.
This is the second Vikram Rana book I’ve read and I was not disappointed. This mystery demonstrates an excellent writing style with obvious talent. Another huge 4 Boundless Star Book.
