Sriram's first, Long reverie of Partha Sarma, is more intense and has portrayed the dilemma of the hero, in words that are strung in beautiful expressions.
Read the book to unfold further plot.
If we see generally, I loved the plot. It’s a complete package filled with suspense, drama, politics, crime, etc. The writing style of the author is amazing. Author has done good use of vocabulary and language. Writing style holds the attention till the end. There are lots of twists and turns that make plot interesting. I like the way the picture of film industry and politics has been portrayed. It was intriguing reading. Story took unpredictable turns at certain point and I like the ending. Overall good one. I definitely enjoyed reading it. It’s like watching an amazing movie. Recommended from my side.
Investigation leads to revelation of some ugly truth and conspiracies that involve people from the political world and as the story progresses, it unfolds the power play of everyone involved and hints at something much bigger than what was hinted initially.
The story had me hooked from the very beginning. The concept is enthralling and the plot twists keeps you entertained throughout. The title itself is pretty intriguing and even though it doesn't make much sense in the beginning, it becomes totally relevant as you reach the end when all the webs and knots untie. In spite of being over 400 pages, there was not a single place where I got bored and the authors vivid narration is the obvious reason.
The book has many layers and deals with one thing at a time making it a well paced thriller, even if it was slow at first, where you get one question answered just before another one presents itself in front of you.
It's been a long time since I read a thriller and I'm glad I picked this up as I really enjoyed this.
I found this book title very intriguing, how can be a death was useful so find out that I read this book, story is very fast paced and gripping that i can finish this book in three sitting.story is written in such a manner that it makes it an easy read because mystery and suspense through out keep you hooked with the story.
Story starts with a murder of an aspiring actress Priya and there are lot of things missing from crime scene.A rumour that Anil, son of Mohan Krishna a politician and former superstar of Telugu movies is involved in this murder.Mohan hired Partha to clear his son name from this case but during investigation lots of things come forward which shocks Partha. Case is the hot topic on all news channels and social media and pressure is on Partha and his team to solve this theory as soon as possible.
Book focusing on politics, naxalism, student politics and leftism and what happened inside film industry so there are lots of mystery and drama which makes a perfect entertaining read. Language used by author is simple and lucid. Characters are very real and when I'm reading perfect picture comes of each character define so the job done by author is perfect. This book is a political thriller and a best script for blockbuster movie.
