Blood in the Paradise - A tale of an impossible murder

"Blood in the Paradise - A tale of an impossible murder" is a suspense murder case mystery by Madhav Mahidhar. A sure shot eye catcher in book-shelf, which will make you at lease check blurb of book. (Though blurb of the book could be more interesting)

Blurb of the book -
This is a tale of Madhumitha Nandan. Her courage, her determination, her mission and her pursuit.
This is a tale of DCP Vishwaroop. His honesty, his intelligence, his shrewdness and his focus.
This is a tale of Anupriya Gautam. Her theories, her influence, her credibility and her dependability.
This is a tale of an impossible murder. The puzzle begins.
Goal - Freedom from the fear of death
Weapon - Deceiving the minds
The Bait - Law—breakers
Evidence - Nullified because of the weapon
Crime designers - Unknown to the executor
Story started with a suiside attempt of Madhumita. Her husband, Vikash came home a few minutes after Madhu consumed cynide. Vikas saw the scenario and in panic he called neighbours and ambulence. Police entered in to the scene and started investigation. But when they came to know that Vikas died due to high dose of poison and chances of Madhu's survival still there, they got confused.

Vishwaroop, an honest & intelligent DCP, take the case in hand. He started investigation. He along with his collegue understood the truth and started taking actions. (I don't want to spoil the suspense so leaving remaining summary)

I like the way Madhav narrated the story. Though there were some lose ends but it is still better than plain rom-com novels of debut author. Author has taken enough efforts to study criminal psychology & police intterogation style, which is visible in questionair prepared for Madhumitha. Talking about ratings:
  1. Cover - 4 / 5 
  2. Language - 3.5 / 5
  3. Story Line - 4.5 / 5 (Smooth. I finished it in 2 sittings)
  4. Characters - 4 / 5 (Very strong character base, specially Madhu, Vishwa, Anu, Mallika
  5. Overall - 4 / 5
