ABOUT THE BOOK:
Early one morning in the township of Avadi, a woman who was on her way to attend a relative's wedding falls victim to a chain-snatcher and loses her life in the process.
The very same morning, Karthik, an up and coming young businessman is found shot dead in his car in the middle of the road - the only witness to the incident being his employee Drishti who was in the car with him at the time.
The responsibility of getting behind the root of both incidents falls on Inspector Satyajit, an intrepid and honest police officer, and his team who get cracking on both cases immediately.
But as the investigation proceeds further, the incidents and the stories of those involved get increasingly confused and murkier.
Murderous Greed is a mastermind crime thriller which will entertain you to the core. There are lots and lots of suspense, twists and turns in the story which will give you adrenaline rush for sure.
The plot is very stirring and nervewracking. I loved the idea of involving two different crime scenes in the story and creating such an exciting plot.
On the other hand, the storyline is undoubtedly action-packed and out of the box. It will thrill you every now and then and you will love the pace and connectivity of this story. It keeps you hooked to the very last page.
Talking about the characters, there is handful of them but all are equally important. You cannot neglect the necessity of any character. They are absolutely gripping and interesting. Also, the characterization is very descriptive, which I liked a lot.
The language and writing style used in the book is simple yet attractive. The command over language is what adds to the story even more.
What makes it even more exciting is the fact that the author has already begun writing the sequel to this book. It will be released in 2018 and I can't wait to read it.
I feel that the modern literary world needs novels like Murderous Greed as it is a great contribution to the reader's delight.
Overall, Murderous Greed is an amazing and stimulating read. I would love to recommend it to everyone. So, go ahead and buy this book from Amazon now!
