The Bikini MurdersThe Bikini Murders by Farrukh Dhondy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The book is based on the life of the Serial Killer Charles Sobraj, but is a highly fictionalized version of the same. Farrukh Dhondy has added his own imagination and has recreated the life of Sobhraj whom he calls Johnson Thatt in the book.

The book almost follows in the lines of life of the real killer, but deviates in details. Definitely it an interesting read.

Towards the end it make Sobraj large than life by making him cohort with Al Qaeda and the CIA.

The book is in the form of a narration by Johnson to the police office who captures him in Nepal and the twist in the ending makes on rethink the entire book.
