About the Author
Anil Thakraney is a senior journalist based in Mumbai. An MBA, he began his career in the advertising business and later gravitated to journalism. Experience in covering real-life crime stories proved useful while writing this book. His highly opinionated columns and sharp interviews with powerful people and movie stars have been published in leading newspapers, magazines and websites.
An Invitation to Death is the gripping story of a serial killer set in contemporary India. Darius Irani, a hyper-intelligent young man, goes on a murderous spree, targeting young, beautiful, urban women, who fall prey to his easy charm, sense of humour and innate madness. Strangely, he does not rape his victims, but the brutalisation is savage-like, indicating a deep hatred for women. The killer manages to evade the cops every single time. As the inevitable cat and mouse game plays out – with a great deal of blood spilling along the way, and climaxing in a devastating reality – the journey reveals the depravity of the human mind, and the way politicians, police and media deal with hard crime in this country.
