I enjoyed the chase and the thrill of the storyline. The character sketches would make you doubt every character and ponder over who exactly is behind the racket.
The pace is such that every moment has the protagonist looking over her shoulder every 5 minutes. You can’t put it down. If you are a thriller/suspense lover like me then you will try to guess every time someone comes in the limelight of the book.
The author has extensively done research for the racket and for their police work and I can safely assume the author herself is a big fan of paced up thrillers.
I usually don’t compare thriller writers or any writers for that matter but what Amaranth has made me aware about is this kind of sex trafficking that exists in the society.
The author also touches upon the experiences of a 19 year old Sandy,her naivety and simplicity and her growth and struggle as an Indian girl living in London with changing cultures and adapting to the lifestyle she never thought she’d experience.
Don’t miss this book. This book has a beat of its own. It opens many opinions and views for the reader out there. At the end, the story leaves you thinking about the protagonist and the antagonist.
Enjoy! Happy Reading!📚📚
