Book Summary:- The Deadly Dozen: India’s Most Notorious Serial Killers

What is it that attracts us all to the stories and the heinous crimes committed by a Serial Killer? What is it that draws us to read about the exploits of these depraved human beings?

Is it because of the vicarious pleasure we derive from the macabre methods of the killings? Or are the sheer numbers that gob-smack us into fearing them in awe?

Perhaps, it is the audacity of the killers who believe that the law will never catch up with them?
Or is it the sensationalism attached to the sordid tales? Or maybe something that appeals to our basic, primate instincts?

Maybe we all have a latent serial killer in all of us…

We have heard of the famous Serial Killers that have tormented the Western World – Jack The Ripper, Ted Bundy a.k.a ‘The Crazy Necrophile’, Charles Edmund Cullen a.k.a ‘The Angel of Death’, Pedro Alonzo Lopez a.k.a. ‘The Monster of the Andes’ and more. Many of us have looked at the phenomenon of Serial Killers as being a derivative of Western Culture. But we couldn’t be more wrong! Because, crime and depravity are not contained by borders; nor are they endemic to a particular culture.

They can flourish anywhere and everywhere…

If you thought serial-killers were only seen in the Western World… think again!

India has seen some crazy, loonies who have gone on a killing spree. And they have been both women & men! In this book, The Deadly Dozen, You’ll encounter 12 Messengers of Death.

 

Book Review:- The Deadly Dozen: India’s Most Notorious Serial Killers

This book, The Deadly Dozen, is a frenzied feast for all true-crime fans!

This is yet another great read this week that’s really hard to put down. It’s a very insightful  and detailed account of some of the most horrific serial killers. In fact, while reading this book I just had to keep turning the pages yet again. Not just because it’s all that enjoyable in any way, shape or form, to delve a little too deeply into the malefic minds of such murderous men; but because I sincerely believe that most people are fascinated in one way or another by serial killers. Perhaps it’s the human morbid fascination with death. I’m not exactly sure. However, maybe it just astounds the average person as to how depraved other individuals can be.

These serial killers are not mythical beasts with horns and shaggy hair. They are people living among society, going about their day to day activities until nightfall. They are the fathers, husbands, church going members of the community.

This A-Z encyclopedia of 12 messengers of death is the scariest serial killer book you’ll read. In this Book, The Deadly Dozen, included are the most famous true crime serial killers, like Raman Raghav, The Stoneman, and Professor Mohan Kumar, and not to mention the women who kill, such as Cyanide Mallika and Anjanabai Gavit.

Each of the serial killer chapter includes information on when and how they killed the victims, the background of each killer, their trials and punishments. For some there are chilling quotes by the killers themselves. The Deadly Dozen by Anirban Bhattacharya is an easy to follow collection of information on India’s most heinous murderers.”

Even if you are a seasoned campaigner of true crime, The Deadly Dozen: India’s Most Notorious Serial Killers by Anirban Bhattacharya will surely raise more than a few hairs on the back of your neck. It was a first-class read and the author gave a perspective to these horrific crimes that was both fascinating and intriguing. This was one of the better true crime books that I have read recently.

I would highly recommend this read to all fans of the true-crime genre. Well done again!
