Deciphering a Kill Beyond the 'Who', 'Why', 'How', One More Question Remains?

Author Name: Krishnakumar (KK) | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

36 hours after Devan Kartha (aka DK, Age 39, Male) leaves his residence in Bangalore, he is not where he was supposed to be, rather is found dead on a side lane by the National Highway to Kerala. Though the death appears to be natural, mystery shrouds around the question, where was DK in those 36 hours incommunicado, untraced?. 

Why did DK change his travel plans? What happened to him during that night? Did DK’s wife Devika Kartha have any role in his missing and death?. 

With more questions and no obvious answers, an overzealous police force, frames and arrests Sharath Verma (a divorcee himself) as the possible suspect, Why? because he and Devika were in a relationship during their college days. 

Set amidst the modern-day urban life in Bangalore, “Deciphering a Kill” traverses around these questions that the protagonist hunts for answers to, uncovering unknown personalities of known people, realizing that the truth is beyond one’s comprehension. 

In the end, as pieces of puzzles do fall in, there is still one more question, that is not answered yet!

Krishnakumar (KK)

Krishnakumar (KK) works for a US MNC, he leads Technology and product solutions in Energy and Power for the Asia Pacific region. KK lives with his family in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Hailing from Kerala, KK was born in Madras (now Chennai) and lived in Bangalore for a larger part of his life.

In his own words, “Deciphering a Kill” is an inspired work with a limited resemblance to anyone living or dead. The plot is purely a creative extension of many characters that KK had met and interacted with, in his life. The numerous road trips, travel to Kerala, and the experiences associated with those, helped to shape the setting of the plot, that he hopes his readers would enjoy!
