Wow, this is one of the best novel I have read this Diwali, “The colour of Passion” name itself suggest that this book is different from other. When I started this book I thought it’s an open case where rapist and murderer is caught and are in prison, then why ACP Agni Mitra is investigating? But I was wrong, the author has perfectly articulated ACP Mitra’s way of thinking and solving the case, which is one of the best I have read in recent times. You will find crime, suspense, thriller, twist and turns in this novel, a perfect ingredient to be a best seller.
I am reading Saurabh Mukherjee for the first time and after completing this novel would like to read his previous work also. The writing style of the author is excellent, he has a god gift to write this type of suspense/thriller, especially his unique way of introducing new character which makes you feel as a culprit. I liked the facial expression described by the author when ACP Mitra investigates each and every suspect which makes this book un putdown able. The easy and lucid language is a plus point for this novel; also author has a technique to change a simple story into thriller by maintaining suspense till the end.
If this is a researched book on Tollywood, than I must say the dark secret behind glamorous world of Hero and Heroine is perfectly revealed by the author. As usual I don’t want to reveal the plot or the story, but blurb itself is a good kick start to know, who is real culprit behind the murder of Hiya Sen?
I highly recommend this novel to those who loves to read crime and suspense.
