Padmavati, the village hostess’s body is found in a sacred chamber of the Kali temple. Men wanted her; women hated her; while some men wanted to keep their liaisons hidden.
But who had the motive, the means and opportunity to kill her?
Padmavati charged by the hour – her laughs, her understanding, her empathy, her advice – everything was available only in return for payment, which made her, in the Sarpanch’s eyes, a little more than a trader. The onus of solving the case puts head constable Venkat reddy in a quandary. He has never even solved petty crimes before and here he is faced with murder!
The equation before him is simple; seven suspects,seven motives, one murder.
