Book Cover Review
Book Cover evidently signifies that this is going to be a Corporate touch of story. When we finish the story we will know the exact suspense of the cover.
I would like to thank the author for the digital copy in an exchange of an honest review.
The story starts with four people Ravi, Nandhini Amaan, shaina with her son Rajiv meeting up at a nightclub. They all Work at an electronic technology firm , Bliksem Technologies. The party ends up with the murder of Ravi and kidnap of Rajiv. Who is the kidnaper? Who killed Ravi? Are these both incident related to each other? What’s the reason behind these incident? Will Rajiv be saved? What’s the ransom?
Welcome you all to the story which parades you to the real corporate world.The ego, the urge to succeed ,the loopholes in the system everything was neatly communicated by the Author as the story progress. The story gives us the clear picture how money plays in the real world where the human life and emotions have no worth.
I really liked the author’s detailed technical terminologies and the knowledge induced to our brain. The characters were introduced at right notch. Author will give us a hint about the suspense but makes sure that we doubt our finding till we reach the end of the story.
Sivakumar character was not discussed much after the kidnapping or murder sequence. How Sivakumar was able to trust Shaina and leave the papers with her after that important incident? If Sivakumar character was involved a bit more, the story would have been even better.
The confession of the antagonist was brilliant ,I just felt the final sentimental drama could have been limited less than which was written so that I would have loved the perfect job of antagonist much more.
Overall this book will make you to finish it in one go and summarize the dark side of the corporate world with the right mirror.
Recommendation:Yes, who likes to finish a book in one sitting.
