About The book: A clash between political parties turns wicked when the Chief Minister Shekhar Vajpayee is assassinated at a political rally in MMRDA Ground, Mumbai. The assassin, veiled by a stampede of thousands, escapes.
A series of political homicides ensue, and the police brush their hands off the case. Someone high up the ladder is calling the shots.
Things turn twisted when three strangers lives' are entwined :
Revathi Shekhar - a hot-headed, spunky politician’s daughter - in the search for a lifelong commitment.
Siddharth Roy Chowdury - a young, ambitious politician - ready to cross anyone to climb up the political ladder.
Arjun Rao - a heart-broken army soldier - with nothing to lose, yet vengeful.
In Mumbai, where the factionless rule supreme, will these three stand up against evil ? Or will they be silenced, like many more before them ?
Spilling Down the Wine Glass is a page-turner that will leave you desperate for more.
Review: The cover and Title perfectly suited the story. It was fresh and Innovative with a Crisp narration. The blurb is so interesting that will urge you to read the book and once you start the book, the series of events will never get you bored and you will enjoy every aspect of the book. The characterization was equally interesting. I really liked the relationship between Sabina and Siddharth. It was very emotional. Even The way Revathi had taken revenge with Siddharth was equally very Interesting. The politics Plot was also gripping, but sometimes too much politics make you bore, but the Author had balanced the three things Love, Revenge and politics in such a way that it never lets you bored till the end. In fact, you wanted to read more and more. The end was good. There is a saying “All is well that ends well” It perfectly suited the storyline. The way Author had narrated the book from the point of view of three Characters Revathi, Arjun and Siddharth was commendable. You will not at all get confused while reading the story from three perspectives. Overall A nice read. Recommended to all those who wanted to read something new and Interesting. All the best Author.
