Book Review – A Season for Dying by Sharmishtha Shenoy

I am a big fan of detective stories and movies. I like reading a thriller, murder mysteries and suspense stories a lot and watch the same genre movies too. Satyajit Ray’s Pheluda series is one of my most valuable possession. Sidney Sheldon’s books are also there on that list too. I have read quite a few novels in this genre and the last one for this year is Sharmishtha Shenoy’s Vikram Rana Series. So here let me talk about one of the books in the series A Season for Dying. Review – A Season for Dying The author has not wasted time in building the story and the characters – especially the two main characters – ACP Gopi Reddy and Vikram Rana. As the story progresses the characters evolved more and more. As I go on reading each page, the thrill builds more as what is there on the next page. As I keep on reading and the new characters are introduced it did not take much time to know who and what about the new character. It is well narrated by the author in a short yet effective way making the reader know the character and move on with the story. Now coming to the writing style, I would say any reader does the writing in a very simple language that is easy to understand. Kudos to Sharmishtha keeping the writing style simple for the readers without making them much to think on the meaning of the words. I liked the way Sharmishtha narrated the story depicting the murder incidents happening one after another in the city and the Police along with Vikram Rana investigating, who the killer is. As the story progressed, I also started making my analysis and tried guessing the killer among the crowd of characters. I would surely recommend this book to the readers of detective stories. I am sure you will not get disappointed. A Season for Dying is one of the books in the series. I am looking forward to reading the other two books by Sharmishtha Shenoy in this series.
