Set in Chennai, Why I Killed My Husband is about a woman whose quiet dreams are destroyed day after day by what her Carnatic musician husband and society demands of her.

And with that awakening, she unleashes a ruthless plot that will allow her to steer her life in the direction she chooses.
Why I Killed my Husband, narrated by the author Anita Nair herself, is as much a thriller as it is a story of our lives that will keep you guessing even as it teases an occasional laugh out of you.
