Detective Vikram is delineated as an established sleuth with a brilliant track record. One day during travel, he is kept under spell by a phantom who narrates to him the twenty five cases of crime. Detective Vikram too solves all the investigation puzzles except the twenty-fifth case and wins his freedom from the spell of the phantom.This book has taken nearly four years to complete. The stories are based on the bizarre events that are taking place the world over at all strata of society. They are intended to entertain and, at the same time, make the readers look in a different way at the results of each investigation. They can at least use the knowledge gained from the case studies for guarding against the shockingly evil intentions of some people who appear good and act very close to them in everyday life.Call it ripping the mask, reading between the lines or moving a few steps forward, reading the words behind the eyes of the person with whom we communicate, whatever! The stories unveil true human nature, good and bad, for the benefit of the readers. The case studies or stories, as they can be called, are entirely fictitious and the characters are just based on the author's imagination. They do not refer to any real life episode or a person or persons, living or dead.
