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.
The characters are sketchy and uni-dimensional..the ACP is supposed to be brilliant who has solved many complex cases but we don't see him doing any detective work apart from bonking the leading lady. And the leading lady is a brilliant and famous crime reporter who has visited 21 countries and she is just 26... less said about the cliched Kapoor khandan characters the better.
But as he starts to investigate, Prakash Mohile soon realizes that this case is not the simple stalker fan case as he had imagined. He would have to sift through layers of family secrets and dirty laundry to get to the assailant who is getting bolder and bolder with each attack from mauling Nidhi's pets to threatening letters!
Can he solve the case before something drastic happens?
The premise of the story intrigued me the first time I came across this book. Being a lover of mysteries, I really really got intrigued when I read the blurb and the saw the smoky cover featuring a blurred image of a girl.
Hoping for an intense, brain teasing and thrilling suspense, I was not dissappointed and loved the start of the book. The way the author painted the whole lifestyle of the mega film star with her scary childhood with an egoistic and chauvinistic father; and gave an introduction to the tough nut ACP. I was already sufficiently intrigued. The suspense and thrill is maintained till the latter part with the mysterious assailant able to enter and leave the heavily guarded house without anyone noticing and the fluid transitions from the frightening but also heart wrenching flashbacks from the present to the past.
Although the plot is nothing very extraordinary, still I was engaged and glued to my seat. The characters and pace are beautifully handled by the author and I loved how he was able to throw so many characters in the story and yet give them their own limelight.Read more ›
