 After reading an excerpt from the book, author Anirban said, "We feel that bad always happens to others and that's completely a misnomer. I love making the readers feel uncomfortable and make them question the ever-eluding reality. These bone-chilling stories in The Deadly Dozen will take the readers into the hearts and heads of India's most devious murderers and schemers, exploring what made them kill and why".
