Format: Paperback
As Nidhi Kapoor, a star in her own rights in the film industry, is about to start shooting for her much anticipated movie, weird things start happening around her. Her pets are found mauled over, her film set goes up in flames and a threatening letter is found at her home. This being a high profile case, ACP Prakash Mohile is roped in to lead the investigation. Rujuta Singh is a photojournalist who gets embroiled in the case as she was working closely with the ACP. Stakes are high, but will Prakash and Rujuta be able to apprehend the perpetrator in time to save Nidhi Kapoor’s life?

The glitz and glamour of the film industry is always enticing and there are always more to the stars than meets the eye. But Nidhi Kapoor’s family has secrets rooted deep in their past that are now coming back to haunt them. While the plot is not very extraordinary, it is very interesting. Characters and narrative style compliment the plot and as a result it emerges as above average. There are a number of characters that play a major role in the story and I liked them all for being really well developed and their many facets. I liked Prakash for his efficiency and reserved nature. I liked Rujuta for her natural inquisitiveness and I like Tarana for her many ideas. However, I failed to like the character of Nidhi Kapoor herself. But the best part of the story was its narratives. The author did not show his hand all at once and let things unfold at crucial times. It was well paced and full of unfolding drama that kept my interest in the book intact.

While my overall experience was quite good, I felt that some things were left unsaid that could have been included for the reader’s information. Also, while there was enough told about the characters, I would have liked to know a little bit more background on some of them.

Format: Paperback
This book falls into the category of a psychological thriller. It highlights the various events in the life of an actor who was the star of Bollywood. Nishant Kapoor starts off as a poor boy looking to make it big and ends up as the star of Bollywood. The author goes into detail about the trials he faces and how his life changes. The story is set at a time when Nidhi, Nishant’s second daughter is at the peak of her acting career. The police are called in when her pets are found dead in the house and then follow what looks like sabotage.

As the investigation is on, we are introduced to two major characters apart from the people in the Kapoor’s family; ACP Prakash Mohile, an uptight person who takes his work seriously and has a wonderful track record, and a journalist, Rujuta, who tags along while working on her assignment on the police department. These two characters have been sketched really well by the author and are quite strong. The journalist is inspiring in many ways and shows that being a woman is no hindrance to what you want to do in life. Her aunt, who makes a small appearance in the story plays a pivotal role towards the end.

The Kapoor household consists of Nidhi, her older sister and their mother’s brother as well as Nishant who is brought back into the picture later on. The authors spins a sinister web of murder, betrayal, love and slowly reveals a plot that will keep the reader enthralled. As the investigation continues, the deeper they dig into the past, the more the truth about Nishant’s personality and his family comes to light. The climax of the story is brilliantly written with a good ending.

However, though the author manages to tie up most of the loose ends and neatly close the plot, there are a few things that remain unanswered. These however do not deviate from the fact that this is a well written story and will be enjoyed by those who love a good mystery or psych thriller.

By Jeba TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 9 December 2014
Format: Paperback
I am not sure why Author chose to name the book as the The Nidhi Kapoor story as the story mainly revolves around Rajuta the photo journalist.
The plot revolves around a Bollywood who's who family and their deep secrets coming to bite them finally. I will not reveal much about the plot as it would give away the story. The book feels more like a movie script rather than a novel. The author goes to great extent to explain everything, every word their meaning and the local context. Which according to me is not necessary. It unnecessarily increased the size of the book.

There are many plot holes in the book like an ACP being summoned for murder of few pets? Yes its a who's who home but ACP ?

The characters in book are pretty much single dimension they lack intelligence and usually do the same thing over and over again. Being a suspense novel the character should be much more slippery and evil.

Having said that I liked the concept of the story and the way story progresses. It feels a bit hurried at the end though. Also, Saurabh has done his research on Bollywood character's real life, Over all a good book to read over weekend.

The story is definitely written in a very gripping style.

I have read quite a few mystery novels and this one reads like the best of them without a doubt. Throughout the story, I didn't feel like putting the book down. The way the author changes the time periods and takes us back to the 80s and 90s and then brings us back to the present - that definitely added to the allure of the story line. I was travelling in a bus and I got so engrossed that I missed my stop while reading the book.

Why not 5 stars then? Well, there are loose ends and quite some improvements could be made. For instance, there are various crimes committed in the story and no one is discovered as the criminal (at least till the end). There's a car accident, there is someone trying to break open the house. In all these places, clues could definitely be left and some headway could have been made by the police. How could someone bang a car with one's SUV and escape without a trace? How could the SUV escape absolutely unharmed? How could the police NOT have found the SUV especially with the entire might of the Mumbai police looking for it? There are many such minor things unexplained. (I won't go into the details or it may reveal the plot).

Another issue is that the detectives themselves don't deduce much. They keep trying but they don't make any headway in the case. In fact, it all sounds like luck when the case gets solved in the end. More power and deduction abilities to the sleuths would have been better.

However, all in all - an amazing read. Definitely worth it. And a really cool debut, given that I didn't want to stop reading even once.
