The thing about thrillers is that they are all based on the tenet of a gripping mystery. Without the mystery, they fall flat. Now, even if the mystery is an oft repeated trope, if the treatment is fresh, it will grip a reader and give them edge-of-the-seat titillation.

‘Eighty hours to save Karen’ is a book with such a vein of thrill in its body. The 69 page volume is the author’s first commendable attempt at writing a thriller. The storyline, sans any superfluous language, is straightforward and takes you straight into the mind of the protagonist Air Commodore Mathew Williams. The story explores the lengths to which a devoted grandfather would go to ensure the safety and well-being of his only grandchild, entrusted to his care.

Karen is struck by a strange illness that seems to affect only her. What is wrong with her? What is her affliction? Is it supernatural in nature or is it just an unusual medical phenomenon, perhaps, even an anomaly?

Well, read the book to find out more. I recommend reading it in one go (not difficult as it is only 69 pages). This is a worthy debut by the author.

 

 

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.

‘It happens’ succinctly captures this dynamic as it unfolds in the lives of ordinary people, people who sometimes got caught up in things that were not of their making. Bhaswar has taken snippets from life, perhaps even news reports and woven realistic tales around them. Backed by brilliant language, the stories take you with them on mini-journeys. To me this book came across as a wonderfully aromatic broth, chock full of fragrant ingredients, which when eaten contained flavours that literally exploded in my mouth.
