BOOK REVIEW: A Minute To Death by Ganga Bharani Vasudevan


Murder most foul or an open-and-shut case of routine suicide?

Young, vivacious and an aspiring writer, Riya wants nothing more from her longtime crush/boyfriend than to let her in on one of his exciting investigations. After all, what better source material for a book than a real life tragedy?

No-nonsense veteran cop, Rohan picks a case of probable suicide to satisfy Riya’s needs. Little does he know that there is more to this case than meets the eye.

What made the victim hang herself at the break of dawn? What is the secret that her group of friends is hiding? Will Riya be able to salvage a workable plot for her upcoming novel out of this case of seemingly simple suicide?

I got this book from the author in exchange for honest review. 
A minute to death is a thriller Novel. When i started reading this book, i found it interesting, but gradually after reading some chapters i loose interest. The book contain approx 115 pages .A fast read, i finished it in one day.

This book is a page-turner...i like the plot.  Avanthika is found hanging in her room with no evidences to prove that it is not a suicide. Rohan, a veteran cop is handling the case and is not fully convinced about the suicide. Riya, his girlfriend wants to be a part of the investigation . Rohan has chosen this case as it looks like an open-and-shut suicide case. 

There is romantic angle.Riya is Rohan's gf. Both together make a cute couple. The chemistry between Rohan and Riya was wonderful .Inspector Rohan  has handled many cases and is experienced. Riya is an  the aspiring writer.

Every chapter ends with suspense or a new clue and the book is gripping.There is nothing extra or less, the author has kept the story to the point. 

I like the character of  Inspector Rohan, that is my favourite character. 
The climax was the highlight of the story .The ending was well. 

The author has done a good job. There are twists and turns in the story. I would recommend this book to all the readers. I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars. A must read.
