- Book Description

But Raaj’s wife, Serena is out of the country and the suspected woman Kim has more alibi than he can count.A close friend of Raaj dies, in mysterious circumstances, soon after. But its only when Bombay Stock Exchange nosedives the police starts digging old graves.Love, deception, murder, suspense. No secret can stay buried! Nothing lasts forever.
- My View
The thing I liked the most about the book is its plot and sequence in which the story has been weaved and the secrets have been revealed. The novel has been divided into four parts. The first part starts with the suspicious death of Raaj and hence the suspense begins with the investigation followed by interrogation and accusations winding it up with an unexpected jolt. The second part intertwines Raaj and Serena’s college days and their love story. The third part starts with a quote “ The game isn’t over until it’ s over” by Lawrence Peter ‘Yogi’ Berra which completely stands on the reader’s expectations when gone through the rest of the story. And the last but the most amazing part which I couldn’t resist myself to read it without any pause, unravels all the tangled threads of the story.
The story has been so cleverly crafted that at one moment you think that the ball is in your court , the other moment , you can’t even see the ball. The places and the attires have been beautifully described by the author. Though the story got a little stretched in the middle, but you can neglect it as the author has done a commendable job in interweaving the suspense. So, if you are looking for a book that has all the flavours:- suspense, romance, thrill weaved together in a captivating manner, then this book is a for you.
All in all, an entertaining and mysterious reading journey which is able to clutch reader’s hand till the end if one likes to play with riddles.
My rating: 4.1/5
