    Five beautiful college girls - Kat, or Kathyayani, Minx or Minaxi, Lolita or Lalitha, Moti or Siya Motwani, and Deepika - are pursued by a serial killer and the only man who can apparently stop him is a U.S.-returned criminologist by the name, Vir Pradyumna.

    Thrilling Thriller

    Usha Narayanan's Debut novel, "Madras Mangler," is indeed a page-turner and
    is sure to be the first of many hits by this gifted author.
    What defines the book is the author's coverage of scenes and situations ranging from
    the slums of Chennai to the Metropolis' of the U.S. The author shows a depth of
    understanding of young college students' psyches as also the expectations of their
    parents in general and mothers in particular.
    While it may appear that the book will be very gory it is not so b...

    A very interesting mystery ~The Madras Mangler

    Hunting Down the Mangler

    The lovers of the crime and thriller genre must read the book. And yes I did fall in love with Vir, I am searching for the mould he was cast out of. Men like that are rare to come across now a days in reality and in fiction. And the girls, each one different, each one strong and weak in her own way. All in all a brilliant book, that crime and thriller lovers must read.

    Thrilling Serial Killer Caper

    The Madras Mangler seems like a young adult novel with its broad tale of romance and female friendship written in a pop culture references drenched, accessible way. But it has a very generous sprinkling of adult noir thriller with the addition of the serial killer plot. While the tone is chick lit the central plot is pure pulp thriller. A serial killer with a misogynistic bent of mind is targetting young college girls and a group of five sassy smart and pretty girls may be next. The only one ...

    Truly Engaging!!

    Usha Narayanan's The Madras Mangler is truly a gripping, well-knit crime thriller. It reflects the author's meticulous observation and thorough understanding of anything and everything to do with life in Chennai on the one side and the accurate pulse she has on the other side of the nature and attitude of today's young girls.

    The way the author has one about describing in detail the different tech-savvy processes involved in investigating a case by the CBI is commendable as it shows how muc...
