Killing Ashish Karve: An Inspector Saralkar Mystery
Crime writing is the second most popular genre among readers worldwide and it has an amazing variety of sub-genres. I love to read whodunits and so as an author, I was naturally inclined towards crime writing, especially because crime is something we all feel vulnerable against. I write about crime that is deeply influenced by the social reality around us, the cocktail of circumstances, inequalities, confused values, moralities and dark desires that lead ordinary human beings towards crime.
Where do you find inspiration for your books? The inspiration for my books comes from both real life experiences, as well as the fertile imagination, I am blessed with. Even the cover of the book is designed exceptionally well and blurb is also fitting.

Then, why three stars? It is the climax where the book fizzles out like a balloon. Nonetheless, the book is still a good read and you will be surprised by the writing skill of the author. Let us have a look on the story-line.

All of these and even some strangers appear to have a potential reason to kill Ashish. You suspect almost every one of these of murdering Ashish at one point or another as the author dexterously tosses up clues here and there.
The number of suspects, however, narrows down as the book progresses and, finally, the murderer is revealed. As mentioned in the beginning of this review, almost all the things in this book are perfect apart from the climax. You are certainly going to like the element of anticipation in the plot. The suspense begins right at the beginning and the reader immediately starts wondering about the upcoming events resulting into turning the pages one after another. I also liked the character of Senior Inspector Saralkar.
Then there is PSI Motkar whose character has also been flashed out well. The chemistry between Saralkar and Motkar is fun to read. This chemistry has been created through well-written dialogues and the author should be given credit for that.
