Review: As a reader, I haven’t tried my hand in Crime thriller, but The title and the Blurb of the book attracted me to read this book and I must say I made the right choice. This book was so engrossing that it kept me busy and could not stop me till I finished the book. From start till the end the narration and twists and turn were so interesting that you start wondering what will happen next and who was the murderer. Although in latter part of the book you came to know about the murderer, but still the climax made you shocked. The character DCP Rita Ferreira was very Interesting and hard working Cop. I loved reading her character. I would love to see this novel as a Movie and I am sure it will make you hooked to your seat. After reading this book, I am completely a big fan of Author Vish’s writing style. The way he narrated the plot of the story is mind-blowing. Each character played their part well and one enjoyed reading it. The suspense truly blows you away and as a reader, you will surely enjoy Adventure, Thrill and suspense in the book. I just loved the way Author had explained the two stories differently and then Merged it together without getting the readers confused. Overall A nice and Entertaining read. I would recommend everyone to read this book if they want some different dose. Good luck Author. Love to read more from you...
