About the Book:

I really do not understand why a serial killer must leave behind a signature, a hint, or a proof of his presence besides a dead body (supposed to be one of his victims). Perhaps, it is because just to show his identity and that all should be terrified of him. Why must anyone kill any innocent people just to solve his purpose? All such questions have made me think about a recent crime thriller book that I read some days ago. I find the book titled 'Compass Box Killer - An Inspector Virkar Crime Thriller' written by Piyush Jha very thrilling and intriguing as well. I was amused when I came to know about the serial killer's compass box been found besides his first victim with a note written in blood, which says in the quoted lines [‘Akurle is just the first to die. To find out who is next, find me first.’].
