Murdrum by Dr. Sohil Makwana is a fascinating crime thriller with blending of murder mystery, bio punk, forensic thriller and a few more subgenres. The novel is written by a doctor, thus, he has leveraged his medical knowledge and other expertise to make the novel really captivating and moving.
At the story, we see that Komal tries hard to get into CBI. But as luck turns around, she majorly works in a forensic lab and plays around data of DNA and all. There is a serial killer out on the lose, probably no one has seen it. Also to maintain a right sense of suspense, the author referred that person as Mysterious Hoodie. The killer targets pregnant women. But why? One needs to pick up the book for internal details. Komal has a hunch about the killer, she tries to make it acquaint with her seniors in the CBI, but all in vain as she is just an intern for them.
How will she then chase the killer? Will her study of forensic and DNA reporting help her grabbing the killer. Other than Komal and Inspector Jadhav, there are some more auxiliary characters that equally nudge the plot and keep its suspense element alive till the last. A terrific page turner in its essence.
The novel will initially prick you so much that once you get under its skin, there will be no point of return. Above all, the author has left the ending at a cliffhanger. We all wanted to know the fate and identity of the killer exposed…but sadly for that we may need to wait for the right sequel.
