A nice narration as each chapter starts with cross examination of the Prosecutor and Ali tells the story. The language is very simple and interesting. The climax is one of the interesting parts of the story. The way the murder mystery is solved and narrated is the highlight of the story. The concept of the story is very different all may not like to read this book, but as a reader, I would recommend everyone to read this story and I am sure after finishing the story the readers will not get disappointed.
