prove his versatility and we should be thankful for that Longtime readers of his blog, and there are plenty, know him for his wit, sarcasm, hold over current affairs, and a balanced approach on topics However, his flair for fiction doesn t come across that clearly on that famous blog of his With the Mahabharata Murders he displays his command over holding your attention with just 3 primary characters, with a plot that mirrors the greatest tale of them all the Mahabhrata The narrative is in the first person of a policeowoman, and a Muslim to boot Talk about breaking stereotypes And as an eternally aspiring writer I understand it s quite demanding to write an entire novel from the perspective of the other gender, and not let the efforts show With a grisly murder taking place within the first few pages you are sucked into the story from the get go Ruksana is not just offbeat as a Muslim policeman but has a checquered past of her own having just finished The Girl on the Train, could see some similarities with Rachel though they are purely unintentional as he had started writing MM much before GotT released I think a quick wikipedia reading of the Mahabharata would be good warm up for this book, especially if you don t remember the epic in details Pavitra Chatterjee s character is one for the ages If this story ever gets made into a movie, and it should, there s an award winning role for the taking And I hope SRK does that This is Arnab s best work till date, at par with his other unreleased novel The Sultan of Delhi Part 1 An entertaining harboiled read from start to

try to do that, there s no guarantee I will succeed, so consider this a disclaimer I was a little bummed that Arnab Ray s next book would not be the sequel to Sultan of Delhi which ended on quite the cliff hanger But having read TMM, it isthan adequate compensation.The protagonist is a cop right out of noir a hard drinking cynic who finds herself way over her head in a case that s bewildering and outre, even as she struggles with numerous metaphoric and real personal demons.The case is that of a serial killer dispatching various people most of whom appear to havethan just a foot in the bizarre, disreputable side of Kolkata society , all of whom are killed using methods that were used on key characters in the Mahabharatha, and all of whom are, in some tangential way, linked to the Pandavas If you are looking for pat resolutions and everything explained, look elsewhere The best parts of the book stray into inexplicable urban legend territory an entrepreneur with a vampire fetish, a child abusing dancer with the powers of prophecy an improvement on the sort of stories you often hear when the people around you are drinking, and the alcohol has done away with the impulses that compel them to be non superstitious and tediously rational I m not sure if liking this is a generational thing, considering these have a resonance to the urban legends and stories I grew up on it may well be, but its these details that lend the book a lot of its atmosphere That and the way the book ties into its source text , the Mahabharatha Does the final explanation stretch the bounds of credibility a bit It does, but nowhere near as much as the conclusion of The Girl On The Train, to name just one example By the end at least I was not sure if I d heard a convincing explanation or one from an unreliable narrator relying on the fact that they are not expected to be an unreliable narrator
