Product description


Realism is never too far in author Salil Desai’s latest book, 3 and A Half Murders. A non-regulation twist turns the saga on its head. - Bangalore Mirror

The unexpected twists leave the reader shocked at the turn of events. The suspense is not allowed to slacken at any stage. The author transfers his own excitement to the characters as well as the reader. The suspense is so well-built and the pace so well-maintained that it is only at the fag-end that the reader manages to start putting together the clues into a coherent reality. The end is shocking and leaves the reader reeling. The writer has deftly handled the plot, weaving it with so many shades. The writing style is easy and the plot is absorbing. It is difficult to put down the book till the mystery is solved. - The Sunday Tribune

He narrates a chapter till its high, then mixes it with a different scenario, until that reaches climax. This makes the narrative more intriguing. The built-up of every character forces you to understand the psyche behind every wrong-doing. The unpredictability and the backdrop of the criminal make the climax unbelievable and astonishing. The book surely impresses the reader with the final revelation. - The New Indian Express
