Serial-Killer Adventure

This may well be the best rime thriller coming from an Indian author after a long time. Unlike the many mythology books coming out every other day this is a true crime novel. It has a gripping murder mystery. The twists and turns will twist your mind seeking for the answers. The climax is a shocking powerful one that one would have never thought of and gives you a jolt!

This is a must read!

1. Its strengths lie in the most powerful hero any Indian novel has produced, HAWA SINGH. He is unl...

Not worth any reader's time... Such a disappointing end... Tried to pull off a Dan Brown... Could not even reach Ashwin Sanghi... Pure waste of time...!!!

CRIMINALLY GOOD!

"Mahendra Jakhar needs to be arrested for writing the Butcher of Benares. The book is so damn good that it will keep you awake at night, won't let you eat or even take a leak. The thrills will chill youand you will be shivering with delight long after you have finished the book. It will keep you spellbound and dazed for days. This is one book that is definitely bigger and better than the movies. Mahendra Jahar should not be allowed to write another book or we will lose all our appetite for fi...

A Taut Thriller

Chilling crime thriller

It's been a long time since I picked up a book that I found difficult to put down. The Butcher gets to you and keeps you guessing till the very end. A racy crime thriller, gripping in its plot and characters.
The book also gives you enough view into the city of Benaras to make you curious and want to go visit the place.

Definite recommendation!

Not good

Feels like a movie script.. Goes to say something but ends up saying something else.. I thought it might be a thrilling read. But sadly, gave me headache with the glorifying of the hero, his died fiance, the FBI agent cum his current love interest, filmy style fighting and finally the climax which is very dramatic.. Not a good read

Less like a novel, more like a filmscript

Starts with good opening and in the middle of book it indulge with so many thing which ultimately take the story from a gripping thriller. Also, many time it describe things like I'm reading a complete script and because of that it loosen grip on story.

Though characters are well chosen and Benares is well described. Aura of lead character is holding its grip throughout whole book.

Author need to tighten its story line for such topic.

Average Book

The books starts with a bland prologue. In bits and pieces, as the story progresses, the sub-plots are interesting ( like the part that contains mention of of Bhrigu Samhita, Marma Adi and James Neill) but mostly the length is linear and very filmy ( e.g. maniacal behavior and ostentatious display of power and money by Prashant Singh and his father) . The characters do not come out strong, especially of the female protagonist-Ruby Malik. The flourishing relationship between Ruby and Hawa Sing...
