I find Chetan Bhagat has toned his writings from romantic novels to mystery genre which hints that he is widening his skill set or maybe its just my view. Coming to this story, it is a routine fare of finding a missing girl and how the detective traces forms the crux of this case. Well, the pace was good, but the relationship between the detective and the victim’s mother was dramatic and full of Chetan’s romantic strokes. The ending wasn’t pleasing enough for the perpetrator character and lacks the desirable punch and validity to justice and felt flattened! Otherwise, the book is a nice time pass for the hobbyists.

I would call this novel a coming of age with compelling read. It contains two criminal cases and travels like a whodunit style of execution. The structure is coiled by its story within story patterns, setting a dimension of tracing the culprits with an edge of the seat atmosphere. I have read the author’s previous book ‘The word is murder’ which was randomly picked for its mystery genre and gave it a go, but now I know what I was getting into and have been right all along. When the first case is paused and moved to second one I was mad to be let loose, but the ending got me hooked and I find the second case less involving than the first may be that’s just me. Overall, a nice page turner and keep you engaged.😌

I like these short stories compared to big reads as this speeds up the reading challenges on the Goodreads app. 😊 The plot is about encountering a fire incident in the sacred heart school lab and how students set to find its grounds? This leads to the official start of the SMS detective agency and thus goes their investigation paths. The characters are memorable for being simple and realistic. It’s suitable for children whose interest lies in mystery or detective stories.

I got this book recommended by the writer Mathrubootham from “The Hindu” Sunday magazine column. I am a huge fan of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and happy to have read a story containing him as one of the characters. It is a spy thriller with an enormous details about the mandalas and the Buddhist Shambala. The story is immaculately driven and pensively guided till the end. Except for the Moriarty part which was imposed in coercion and find it yanked. Overall a nice cliffhanger for the spy fandom.

I have fancied some books of Haruki Murakami followed by Keigo Higashino and this will be the third Japanese author whose work has grabbed my total attention. What is it to have known a culprit upfront and devour for the right execution of vengeance? Well, the story sits on this foundation and imagine each offering their perspectives, thus leaving the room for the readers to decide. And the ending was truly impressive as the suspense is rightly acknowledged.

I have become an ardent fan of Ashwin Sanghi books and completed 3 of his books from Bharat series within this month. His details to historical artifacts, folkloric and semantic is reverential to some of his works. The latest book trumpets on this count and have been bowled over again by the veracity of the content. By taking the true political scenarios such as doklam issues, foreign trades and adapting further is inspirational for the new creative writers in terms of content development. And this is what Ashwin has proposed in here and had given his best shot. I am proud to be a mere hawker of this great book. 😉

A big thanks for the author to have shared a copy of this book and thoroughly delighted to present my staggering insights. It is a simple tale of whodunit story with an interesting unfold of the events through the character of Lucy. Her relationship with Lord Adair is touche and the ghostly Aunt Sedley tickles the bones. Loved it and totally worth it. 🙂

I had a nostalgic feeling of similarities to Nancy Drew series while reading this book. But of course with a bundle of Sherlock Holmes style of deductions underneath. The story is about a murder of the staff Miss Bell which will be solved by the two students of the Deepdean school. It’s refreshing to see the map of characters and the other details are pleasingly potent. Especially Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong were loquacious and inquisitive. Overall had a nice alumna experience.

After Arthur Conan Doyle and few Agatha Christie series, this is the old detective novel that infatuated me. Being a fan of mysteries I tend to read any books that fall upon me; although most of the recent ones keep you on the edge, it is the old ones that deserve the credibility for its vernacular usage and lexicon nuances. There isn’t a rush for character introductions, but will hold your attention to the story till the end. Professor Stub’s character reminds me of Sherlock Holmes and his nephew Andrew to Watson! Totally loved the verbosity and amusing exchanges between the characters. 😊

The three dimensional space,
with the universal key access the inner core,
resides beyond the withdrawal and changeable oscillation of thoughts,
hold the eternal bow and pull the wisdom arrow to target the knowledge of awareness,
where mindfulness is judged by the veracity of passing emotions,
through the dissolution of time and space,
trace the fifth dimension abodes,
which seamlessly flows in altered states of experience,
at the deepest level singularity reverberates with ever ending glory,
with the aim transfixed the trigger released and thence the self is enlightened forever.
