“Happy Hanging!” Saralkar growled with all the spite in his system and stormed out of the cell.
Two corpses . . . a woman lying dead on her bed, a man hanging from the ceiling fan. A suicide note cum murder confession! And a name . . . Shaunak Sodhi!
When the case comes their way, Senior Inspector Saralkar has just been diagnosed with hypertension and PSI Motkar is busy with rehearsals of an amateur play. What appears at first to be a commonplace crime by a debt-ridden, cuckolded husband, who has killed his unfaithful wife and then hung himself, soon begins to unfold as a baffling mystery.
As clues point to a seven-year-old unsolved murder in Bangalore and other leads emerge closer home, Saralkar and Motkar find themselves investigating shady secrets, bitter grudges, fishy land deals, carnal desires, the dead woman Anushka Doshi’s sinister obsession with past life regression and her husband’s links to a suspicious, small-time god-man, Rangdev Baba. And then, suddenly, the murderer resurfaces and yet another life is in grave danger…..
Can Saralkar and Motkar get to the bottom of an unimaginably shocking motive and stop the malevolent killer from committing the fourth murder . . .?
Late one November night, the mutilated corpse of a young Finnish tourist is found in a public garden in Pune.
It looks like a case of brutal rape and murder, but Senior Inspector Saralkar
and PSI Motkar find themselves probing further....delving deeper.
Standing virtually clueless, except for a single white sandal found on the scene of the crime, the policemen duo start looking for suspects. Things get murkier when Saralkar's old friend and colleague, Inspector Patange, seeks his help to establish the identity of another murder victim - an old man found by a wooded hillside on the outskirts of Pune. Not only do the old man's injuries match the wounds inflicted on the Finnish girl, but he is also found wearing the other white sandal.
As Saralkar and Motkar struggle to find the link that connects the two murders, nothing is what it seems....The emerging truth seems far more dangerous and the motive far more bizarre!
Senior Inspector Saralkar is back at his desk after spending a rather annoying week at a ‘Secrets of Living’ course, especially for police officers and is itching for some action now. Luckily, an exciting new case turns up right away!
Barely a year out of college, six close friends—Sandeep (Sandy),
Divya, Kapil (Kaps), Sharmeen, Jerry and Aarushi—are bored of their jobs.
But deadly excitement is just around the corner when Sandy's abusive boss, Ravinder Wadhwa is found murdered after a nasty argument with him. The police arrest Sandy. His friends realize that the only way to save him is to investigate Wadhwa's murder on their own.
Soon, a maze of chilling motives emerges—from domestic violence to sexual harassment to underhand dealings and much more. The friends battle danger and doubt, wondering whether they'll be able to prove Sandy's innocence and catch the real killer.
