The Girl In The Glass Case is a psychological thriller. Have you ever heard of two serial killers competing against one another? In this story, two psychopaths commit horrific crimes, turning the city of Bhopal into a city filled with crime. A constable discovers a dead body dressed as a Barbie doll in a glass case in the city of Bhopal. Usually, the killer targets innocent children around five years old who are separated from their mothers. By concealing the bodies as Barbie dolls, he performs his flagrant act and preserves them in a glass case. ASP Simone Singh and DSP Zoya Bharucha, the two best police officers, struggling hard to get hold of an enigmatic serial killer – “The Doll Maker”. After being suspended, Simone is back at work and it's her first case after the suspension. Zoya is a psychologist who is separated from her husband and trying to study people around her.
The search for "Clipper" is also underway by Superintendent Hussain. So far, Clipper has killed 40 Transgenders without leaving any bodies behind, and the police haven't found a clue in those nine years. What they found was a pair of testicles that he sent to Hussain as a gift.
A new serial killer, The Doll Maker, had taken the limelight away from Clipper, prompting him to be very upset. Hence, "Clipper" makes a mistake in an effort to make headlines in the paper again, but the police get a breakthrough because of it.
What is the motive behind the murders? Who is the real culprit?
To know the answer you need to read the book.
The writing style of the book is quite apt. The author has nicely blended two stories beautifully while keeping the intensity level high until the very end. Throughout the story, there are a number of twists and turns that keep the reader interested and glued to the page. The book is written in good and easily understandable language. All the characters were well created and portrayed by the author. The book is well narrated. In the beginning, I felt the pace was a bit slow, but as the story progressed, the pace also increased. Overall, I found the book to be very good, but I also felt there were some loopholes. It's a book you won't regret if you're a thriller/mystery/crime book fan, go for it.
