This is the second book I got from the author Sourabh Mukherjee. The last book I read and reviewed was “In the shadows of death” I need not mention again that he is an amazing author. The way he handles a powerful theme and weaves the plot into a thrilling story and maintains balances by keeping the secrets unfolded is the main quality of the author. I am not much of a crime thriller lover but Sourabh Mukherjee’s books have a certain kind of quality. The book itself appeals to be read. Also, I am glad that Sourabh brought back ACP Agni Mitra. Realistic and suspenseful plot with well-developed characters. The book holds an audacious attitude which helps in keeping the reader engrossed and leaves him/her surprised in the end with a 180-degree angle change in the climax. The original writing style and understandable use of words make the book more connectable to readers. Kudos to the author for penning down such an enthralling crime thriller.
PS- I haven’t revealed the plot as a small hint will spoil the pleasure of reading the book. 🙂 🙂 Also, find my review of Sourabh Mukherjee’s last crime thriller ” In the shadows of death” here. http://nikitaranga.com/book-review-in-the-shadows-of-death/
Negatives– I didn’t find any. Recommended to all crime lovers who wants to read some fresh crime fiction.
