What I initially thought would be a cookie cutter story, I am happy I was stumped with the way the plot progressed. Each time I thought I was right, I was proven wrong. The book does not shy away from violence, and the killings and interactions are a brutal read, but they pull you in.
As one reads the book, its the tiny details which you grow to love. For example, I loved the tiny snippets describing Mumbai life , food and places scattered throughout the book. I love growing to understand the little things that added a level of depth to each character. For example, Prakash’s strong need to pursue things till the end, or Nidhi’s unusual childhood. Its truly fits the adage, that its circumstances that makes one who they are.
The end and the reveal was something that came across after a character died; however, even after it is revealed who it is, my mind instantly travels back to all the crimes,and makes you wonder how the hell could I have missed it.
If you’re looking for an engaging, thrilling read which helps you escape tedious life and a plot that makes sense and leaves you with a thoughtful feeling, The Nidhi Kapoor Story is for you :)

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.
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.
