This crime novel is a debut work of Karan Parmanandka an investment banker, but reading the novel it doesn’t looks like it’s just a debut. I was pleasantly surprised by the flow of the story and how it kept me intrigued.
He has an easy to read writing style which keeps us hooked to the story line. This novel is a great mix of mystery and thrill which makes us so impatient that we can’t resist to find who the master mind is.
It’s a story about a dismissed police officer named Roy who is hired as a private detective to solve a murder case of a well-known man from the Mumbai’s finance circle. Well just like me you would have read a lot of novels and watched a number of movies with the similar plot but this one is a little different. Reading this book was just like watching a Bollywood movie with all the emotions, love and drama showing up which ultimately made the novel more interesting. The story revolves around the investigation and how each and every person becomes a suspect. The story is very fast paced and keeps us on our toes.
How Roy himself becomes the case while trying to solve the case? To unveil this mystery you will need to buy a copy.
The overall work looks very well thought and personalities of each character is very compelling. The depth of every character added to the fascination of reading the story. Since it was the very first novel from the author some may find lack of extreme perfection but looking at this work I can say that we are surely going to get a bestseller from the author in the coming years.
P.S. I review products on amazon to help fellow customers in taking wise decisions and try to ensure that everyone's hard earned money get its full worth. It always makes my day to know that people find my reviews helpful. Feel free to comment for any queries.
↡ The story glimpse can be briefed as follows: ↡
Roy, an ex police officer is hired to investigate the case of murder of a famous man in Mumbai. The case seemed to be crystal clear as the victim's sister appeared to be the main and only suspect but things turn upside down and the picture changes. With interesting twists and turns the story comes to an unexpected end.
The narration is such that I had devoured this book in just two hours.
The book cover and title are apt for the storyline. It's a win-win read.
• Book cover, goes hand in hand with the title and story and is a cherry on the cake!
• Title, creates curiosity and is unique.
• The story is unpredictable. Hence it binds the reader!

Note - i got this book from author for review purposes.
has come up with his first book,this crime thriller-"The Monsoon Murders"
Set in Mumbai and it suburbs, the story revolves around an investigation into
the murder of a top ranking professional from a top ranking financial
agency by a private detective.
The author Karan keeps you hooked to the book from the page 1 to the end
by his intricate plot that thickens as you go on and keeps you guessing
the murderer till the very end.
The characters are well designed and introduced at the most appropriate times
to keep the suspense.
It is difficult to write suspense thrillers and entertain the " I knew it all" intelligent people in our society
but I would say Karan has succeeded in doing so.
The book is engaging and entertaining with its fine conversations
and numerous twists.A must read!
Note :I received a copy of this novel for review purpose.
The cover is a little spooky, you may think of it to be a girl involved in murders or something but it is not it. This book starts of slow and takes its pace very well. The Suspense in this novel keeps you engrossed throughout the story till the end.
The narration of the book was fast paced and keeps your mind engrossed to know more and the question WHO? A brisk read and imagination level of Author is above par. Enjoyable!!!
The language of the book have has amazed me. The topic is very well researched. Positive Punch!!! Author has made be hooked to the book till the last page
Whoever would read this book will be amazed and content. I cannot ask only crime fiction lovers to read this book but it is recommended to everyone. Those who have not read genre of this kind will develop reading more after this book.
