I'll just summarize the blurb on the superficial to avoid spoilers. The idea about the book is that a woman can kill not only with a smile but also, with a knife. The book begins with Professor Dibhakar Dutt's conversation with Dev. Where Dev wants to write about crimes committed by women and seeks the help of the Professor in this regard. Professor Dutt is a clinical psychologist & Dev is a columnist. He writes about crime.
The book is a collection of the seven most dangerous female killers of India. Or you can say that this book is a collection of 7 short stories related to the murder mystery. The reasons for the murder are different in all the stories but the common factor of all the murders is the woman. She is the one who plans and executes. These stories explore the dark side of a woman and reveal some aspects such as aggression, anger, and cruelty which are rarely associated with women. The book sheds light on a very different side of a woman, a woman who is supposed to be the epitome of love and care can be heartless and ruthless even when covered by greed or lust.
When I was reading this book I was thinking that while this book is based on the murders done by women (true incidents), the book should also include the Kerala massacre in which a woman killed 6 members of her own family in 14 years. When I first read about this crime I was shocked how could someone do something like this for a long time of 14 years and when she get arrested she was very calm & composed. Then I came upon the last story in the book which was the same story I was thinking of.
The excellent description, lucid language, and descriptions of events make this a wonderful read. I would recommend this book to thriller lovers, especially those who enjoy reading murder mysteries.
