So here we have thrillers like ‘Woman in the rain’ which takes the reader to Kurla that is a suburb in Mumbai and into the psyche of Venu, an Engineer by profession who is caught up by some extra work and finishes his duty late in the night. He ventures out into the rainy night to reach home. On the way he encounters a young woman who is caught in the rain. Venu offers a lift to the woman and drops her home. The woman’s bag is left in Venu’s car and when he goes back to return it, he finds the terrible truth that the woman had died four years ago and he had unknowingly offered a lift to the Ghost of the woman. But is that all there is to it? Venu stumbles on to another terrible truth…

‘The Post Mortem’ brings us in proximity to Dr. Pandey, who is in charge of Post Mortems in the Sion Hospital. The Hospital’s proximity of the Eastern Express Highway brings in many accident victims and also corpses. Dr. Panday has his Schedule full, handling post mortems. He gets a personal call at his apartment from a stranger in the night. The stranger informs him that Dr. Pandey would receive a post mortem case the nest day. He informs the doctor to check behind the right earlobe of the corpse. Dr. Pandey argues with the stranger that his schedule for the next day has been planned and he has no case that the stranger has described. Next day, the Dean of the Hospital informs Dr. Pandey that he has to perform a post mortem on an accident case. When Dr. Pandey pulls back the sheet on the corpse to perform the post mortem, he is horrifies to find that the corpse was the same stranger who had called on him the previous night. Was he visited by the ghost of the stranger who had come to direct him to the cause of his death? Going by the directions of the stranger, Dr. Pandey learns the terrible truth that the stranger had not died in an accident, but was murdered.

‘The Auto rickshaw Ghost’ takes us into the life of Radheshyam Gupta, and auto Rickshaw driver, who is the normal family man, having ups and downs in his life.
