Eternal Mayhem by Aniruddha Bose


In his book Poetics, the Greek philosopher Aristotle, asserted suspense is the fulcrum of all thrillers, with a fusion of trepidation, thrill, expectancy, anxiety, collocated with a feel of pandering tensity, captivation, fright, fervour. The readers seize with teeth the plot, as it converges to an aleatory, cryptic and stirring climax, leaving them to ruminate.

Typically, a baddie-driven one, balked by red herrings, twists, to a bewitching cliff-hanger. Pigeon-holed, the author destroys hope, elicits curiosity and springs surprise, out of the blue. This is the form of the customary mystery, psychologic, political or romantic sub-genres.

Gone are the days of ancient epics, Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer's Odyssey, Mahābhārata. With evolving era, the art of story-telling has undergone radical mutation.

Revering them, my attempt was to carve a new scientific sub-genre relevant to this era. The prevalent construct of private detective is trompe-l’oeil. My debut to the ambit was with a novel perception, flouting the abstruse idea with a realistic one. Among the legion deaths, deputed buffs could carry the probe. Many quotidian folks could astutely scrutinise the conundrum, until one hits the final bonanza.

With this scalage, it capsized the age-old detective myths initiated by Edgar Ala Poe, to a realistic podium. Though probe was by apposite folks, solution came from the victor. In my first mystery novel, CHAKRA (Bengali 2010) later as FULCRUM (English 2013), amongst heretical ways of several murders, the booklover is in pursuit of the killer-boffo duo. Later, in PURSUIT (2013), besides original homicidal methods, I ciphered a subtly furtive profound insight into extropy of global dynamics. I fused the elided outlook of tralatitious thrillers with a philosophy for humanity. The traditional ‘protagonist’ waffled between effector and the seer.

Scientific thrillers involve a sixth sense into the core of science, history, evolution with a far-flung eagle view of progress. ETERNAL MAYHEM is one of such kind spotless adrenaline raiser, a touch chalk and cheese grand narrative with numerous puzzling scientific murders occurring worldwide. This complex cliff-hanger keeps the reader’s adrenaline spurting from the onset as scientific murders take place in exotic global locations. Beautiful lassies, intelligentsia, global scientists are trapped in this white-knuckle masterpiece with all the twirl and twists that will keep the readers rapt.

This volume is more than a murder mystery, to transport you from your comfy lounger to a steaming isle, be it Bali, Fiji, Hawaii, Maldives, Bora Bora, Punta Cana or exotic nooks of Jamaica and Puerto Rico. This gripping craft keeps you on your feet, as the global scientific world of genetics gets swathed in the whodunit.  

Amid the scientific essence of genetic cloning research, it’s a scarper from the familiar concepts, to the roots of civilisation with its resultant diversities. It reveals shocking truths, so far clandestine. The apogee seals in a startling eye-opening truth of humanity, offering a thought-provoking riveting thriller.

ETERNAL MAYHEM by Aniruddha Bose: First Look

Readers are always fascinated by the eternally popular ‘WHODUNIT’ or mystery and suspense stories, and the volume of literature in this category is really awesome. The quantity is equally matched by the varieties of the stories in this genre. Starting with the all time favourite murder stories solved by maverick private detectives, these whodunit stories keep the readers glued to the book by the sheer varieties of presentation and the spiral conspiracies running behind the scenes.

Murders always fascinate the common man, probably due to his atavistic attraction to the blood and gory, and the more heinous is the motive behind the murder, the more violent is the style of murder, the more sophisticated is the murder weapon, the more is the attraction.

The motives range from the quintessential greed for money and/or power, the eternal lust for sex, the ever-present revenge for some real or imaginary crime to some apparently lofty ideals like racial supremacy.

The murder weapon also show a great variety starting from the old knives and ropes  to virulent viruses, with novel chemicals and biological weapons thrown in between.

The latest addition to the long list of these mystery thrillers is the so called ‘Scientific thrillers’, where science is mixed with the older ingredients to produce a heady concoction. Dr. Aniruddha Bose, an eminent Plastic Surgeon trained abroad, is a pioneer member of this latest genre. He is an expert story-teller who can effortlessly mix in correct proportions the cutting-edge science, sex and lust, ambition of the extra-ordinary type bordering to insanity, gruesome murders by newer techniques and previously unthinkable murder weapons and above all a completely new type of murderers. As a result, his scientific thrillers are a completely novelty in this genre.

His latest book, aptly named ‘Eternal Mayhem’, is a fine example of what a new generation scientific thriller should be. The book revolves around the villain’s morbid idea of Racial Supremacy and the fascinating idea of creating a new genetically super-race by genetic manipulation.  The story deals with the cutting edge development of Genetic Science mixing it up with an international array of locations and characters. The search for a pure Aryan Race through gene studies is not a new thing, but the author has done a really marvellous job by packaging the proverbial old wine in a new bottle. The fast paced thriller jumps from exotic locales to high-tech laboratories, from countries to countries, from continents to continents. Beautiful models mingle with brilliant scientists and death comes completely unexpectedly. The gripping story has all the ingredients of an excellent suspense-thriller, including liberal doses of sex and humour.

It will be crime to divulge the secrets in a mystery story, so it is better to stop here letting the reader to unveil the dark secrets of this book, and it is guaranteed that the reader will ponder over the book long after he or she finishes it.
