The best part of the book is it’s not gripping but interesting that as a reader I want to know what will happen in the next part. I loved Agni Mitra as a character. Even I loved the killer and the way author has described both the version makes it more interesting.
The flaws in the book is its predictable ending and I didn’t want the killer profile to be revealed so early. Apart from that I have no issues.
In The Shadows of Death – Case Solved!!!! ( go for it if you want murder thriller)
Ratings 4 out of 5
1. The story dwindled between the normal style font unfolding the story and the italicized font pages. I was devouring the italicized font pages, had to restrain and show patience not to jump the gun. The mosquito page was my favorite.
2. It connected so well with the IT / BPO industry and the good and bad aspects which form ingredients of the industry culture.
3. For someone who is from Kolkata, you can definitely relate going around the city in the conquest of solving the mystery.
4. The emotions of love, lust, hatred, fear, adulteration, deceit came out so vividly.
Wish I could write more, but just want to be conscious of not being a "spoiler".
Sourabh Mukherjee - It was indeed a very special treat for the readers and looking forward for more of these best sellers in the coming years.
I personally feel the psychopath murderer could have been given a more prominent role in the main story so that it could have a shocker for the reader.
It Sourabh's first book and I am sure Agni Mitra would face more gripping challenges in the journey ahead. I am looking forward to the next story.
Wishing you good luck.
This is one of the books which I have added to my favorites list already....The pace of the story is never faltering and kept up the interest quotient all throughout. The characterizations were all up there, at par with what we expect and experience in the best selling authors' works in the thriller/Detective genre. The Detective is all blood and flesh with no hypersensitive deduction skills and is rendered much more realistic. In particular I loved how the author delved into the human psyche and used it as the basis for the protagonist's theories. The usage of non-linear story-line in parts works hugely in favor of the book as well.
This is a riveting first novel of what is surely going to spawn a successful series for Agni Mitra's exploits!
portrais the finnesse the obvious fallouts of today's materialistic urban life and
society,its turmoils and fragility of relationships, explores the devils within our mind
that actually leads us to commit crime through the analytical eyes and mind of Agni who
himself is battling loneliness of a life past separation with his own wife...loved the way
how Sourabh has put forward the conflicts of Agni's inner core and how he eventually
surmounts that to catch hold of the mastermind....a magnum opus indeed which brings us
to the edge of our curious mind....would definitely look forward eagerly to your next one
Sourabh....advanced best wishes to him for the same.
A perfect book for the current generation to enjoy and take a lesson from it as well .. I recommended this book to all my friends, knowing I wont let them down with my choice:) :)
Kuddoos for the author (Y)
