WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

A book review

I found this book extremely thrilling, keeping me thoroughly engrossed until the end. I congratulate the author for coming up with one of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read. The identity of the murderer is not revealed until the climax which is sooo good that you won’t be able to put the book down.


The story begins with a gruesome murder of Supriya Kelkar, an employee, at Smart Tech company in Pune. The killer leaves behind a message in a trail of blood for former Lawyer and private detective, Siya Rajput. Senior Investigating Officers at CID, Kapil Rathod, and Mahesh Bhalerao, arrive at the crime scene along with Forensic medical examiner, Dr. Sonia Joshi. As they search, Supriya’s house for clues, Rathod finds a gruesome scene in the bathroom. It’s covered in blood. He is frozen on the spot because it’s like the MO of the serial killer, Kishore Zakkal, who is due for a death sentence for kidnapping and killing seven women but only one body was discovered.Where are the rest of the corpses or had he held them captives? How is it possible to continue his killing spree from behind the bars as he is lodged in Yerawada jail amidst tight security?

Siya is unaware of the impending doom and is busy celebrating her thirtieth birthday with her younger sister, Radha and her fiance, Rahul. Her mother was kidnapped sixteen years ago by Zakkal and her father disappeared within three months of the unfortunate kidnapping. Rathod contacts Siya because they have worked together in the past as Siya was a practising Criminal Defense Lawyer and a private investigator. She has a regrettable secret that she keeps under wraps and quit practising law. Siya is shocked to learn from Rathod about a new murder and that a lock of hair belonging to her missing mother, Naina, was discovered at the crime scene. The deceased, Supriya, was alone in the house as her husband and kids were away when the killer struck. The horror doesn’t end here. She also learns that her mother is still alive along with some other women that Zakkal had kidnapped.


Someone is following his footsteps and is on a murder spree, leaving behind sinister messages for Siya. Who is this guy and why is he targeting Siya? Siya and Rathod are on the hot pursuit of nabbing the cold-blooded serial killer. Will they succeed in their mission and rescue Siya’s mother and the other missing women before it’s too late and nab the culprit?
It’s undoubtedly, one of the best psychological thrillers, that is sure to keep you glued to the book because there are so many twists and turns to maintain the suspense throughout the book. I highly recommend it for reading for all those who love a nice crime thriller.
