Do we know the other side of the story? Or we just conclude the final by simply knowing the oh-so-obvious facts? Is  this book Blood in the Paradise a tale of an impossible murder, or just an accidental death? The book is divided into supporters for each segment.

Fast paced, the story-line is written in dialogues to make it easy to read for Indian readers. The trials and the media turning the events seem natural where it is no more in the hands of law but where the media decides the verdict and either culprits go unpunished or the accused turned out nothing but a victim. I personally like the plot, especially with females leading the narrative with good hold of suspense.

The story is fresh, however the treatment could have been a little better with more focus on other characters and better editing. Few pages seemed repetitive. Even in between, the pages of the diary also seemed like someone else correlating the scenes than the one who was writing it. Recommended for all looking for a light crime thriller.

Excerpt from the back cover 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
