New Delhi, Apr 1 (PTI) Singapore-based author Damyanti Biswas loves to watch her characters go through terrible situations and discover what they are truly made of, and their desires, weaknesses, reactions to adversity and challenge fascinate her and drive her to write crime novels.

Recently she has come out with her second crime novel "The Blue Bar", which she describes as a dark and gritty work of crime fiction that examines the genesis of a criminal, the corruption in a crime-fighting system, the violence against women and men in a metropolitan landscape, and the importance of second chances in life.

Biswas was attending a workshop run by Sri Lanka-born British author Romesh Gunesekera, who was once shortlisted for the Booker Prize, when she started writing this book.
