Best mystery short story set in India

“Their eyes had met. For that tantalizing brief second, in the fore of an infinite inky-blue sky, underneath brief sparks from elusive stars, their eyes, like two blunt hooks, had clasped for one second before he fell, plunging down eight floors of nothingness. His arms were unmoving by his side, turned down like a pair of broken wings. His feet looked fractured, a split rubber band. His face, pale blob of custard, a thin, befuddled smile on it.”

Mia Singh is heartbroken. The man she thought was the one, the love of her life has just broken up with her. To make matters worse, he is flaunting a new girlfriend around their workplace. Bitter and devastated, Mia begins to obsess with getting back at her ex, devising ways to kill him so that she can make him pay for what he was putting her through. Sitting in her tiny office cubicle, she adds to her ‘kill list’ every day, plotting and planning, until one day, her devious scheme is realized.

When the love of your life dumps you, you’re going to go little nuts. But how much crazy is too much?

A gripping novella, written in a tragicomic vein, Vengeful is a spurned lover’s tale of retribution; a lesson to the one that dumped, and the last that he will ever learn.
