My Review --> I did take a couple of days to complete this book, it seems more of a weekend read with over 400 pages of thrill to complete.What I liked about the book was the fact that the characters all fell in place for the plot and the story was going at a good pace. The writer keeps you guessing who the murderer is and it turns out to be wholesome masala to connect the characters and the murder mystery.
My Rating --> 4/5
Why 4 ? This is not the typical James Patterson or Ashwin Sanghi that I have read from the past, also I felt there are a few loopholes in the plot... None the less I had a great time reading this.
