The story is based on an author ‘John Rothstein’ who has a enumerable fans worldwide. What happens when an addictive reader step in and change the fate of the author’s life? How far the fan would go? I liked the cop portions where the story gets intriguing and learned the reader’s mindset from this novel.

Will I get a chance to meet up this favorite author in the near future? It is a Herculean task to furnish thriller plots with rationale details which the author Keigo Higashino has mastered by every book of his release. One may find the plots since his ‘The devotion of suspect x’ to be cordial with culture and modern aspects of life and I truly believe that this is his style at its best. Well, coming to this story which is about making the perpetrator to admit his scandalous act that carries two different homicide case and finding the killer who has taken his life. Although sounds like an open shut case but the execution process is what steals the show. What happens when you bring the physicist Yukawa’s help to solve the mystery must be read to get the stimulating effects. I am counting on his next offer the soonest the merrier.

This is a captivating tale of Jimmy Tock whose lineage falls onto a fine aerialist and clowns with a mystery attached to his parentage. What happens when things go as per his grandfather predictions is the crux of the story explained in a gripping fashion. The conversations between Jimmy and his family is enthusiastic and spreads positivism. I have read a couple of books by the author, but this book stole my heart for its stimulating verbose and content that is indulgent to the courageous efforts in life.

This book isn’t for the trans-phobia and foolish to be naive about it! I just didn’t know what to expect, but curiousness made me to sneak this 6th Cormoran Strike fare. Well, I don’t want to opine the story synopsis that many have already detailed. But I find Rowling scores better in this screenplay and the way characters are laid down will keep the mind engaging and curtailed. Guessing the culprit poses a big challenge as most of them had something to hold onto and further pulls the draconian focus towards the story line. Totally immersive and pulsating in my opinion.

A simple tale that starts with who done it style, combines the stimulative views of a physicist and a mathematician making it a thoroughly engaging output. More than the characters the content is doing the talking in this captivating story. Spellbound is the word I express for this gripping novella. Read it to configure what I truly feel…

I chose this book randomly without knowing that this is part of the series. So may be this could be the reason for giving three star rating!? This story is about hunting the perpetrator who is responsible for the killings of wealthy elders who resides on the assisting living home. He has a partner in crime who works as his sex mate and the nurse in the facility. How nameless nabs them is the nutshell of the story. I do normally like the Dean Koontz style but this did not stir any impressions and wonder if I had read the prior parts then how could’ve made a difference? So, the work is not that bad but could’ve been more gripping is my opinion.

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.
