Murder mystery

And Then There Were None – my thoughts

and then

Author: Agatha Christie

Blurb (from Goodreads):

First, there were ten – a curious assortment of strangers summoned as weekend guests to a private island off the coast of Devon. Their host, an eccentric millionaire unknown to all of them, is nowhere to be found. All that the guests have in common is a wicked past they’re unwilling to reveal – and a secret that will seal their fate. For each has been marked for murder. One by one they fall prey. Before the weekend is out, there will be none. And only the dead are above suspicion. (more…)

The Murder of Sonia Raikkonen – my thoughts

Blurb –

Late one November night, the mutilated corpse of a young Finnish tourist is found in a public garden in Pune. It looks like a case of brutal rape and murder, but Senior Inspector Saralkar and PSI Motkar find themselves probing further….delving deeper.

Standing virtually clueless, except for a single white sandal found on the scene of the crime, the policemen duo start looking for suspects.

Things get murkier when Saralkar’s old friend and colleague, Inspector Patange, seeks his help to establish the identity of another murder victim – an old man found by a wooded hillside on the outskirts of Pune. Not only do the old man’s injuries match the wounds inflicted on the Finnish girl, but he is also found wearing the other white sandal.

As Saralkar and Motkar struggle to find the link that connects the two murders, nothing is what it seems….The emerging truth seems far more dangerous and the motive far more bizarre! Who murdered Sonia , and why? The truth will chill you to the bone!

My thoughts – This book is in the 2nd one in the Inspector Saralkar series. I have not read the earlier one but had read quite a few good reviews about it in the blogging community. So when I was offered to review a copy of the 2nd one in the series, by Fingerprint Publishing (the publishers), I agreed. (more…)
