My review for the book Salvation of a Saint by Keigo Higashino




Title: Salvation of a Saint                                             
Author: Keigo Higashino
ISBN: 978-0-3491-39334-0
Genre: Crime Fiction
Publishers: Hachetteindia
Price: INR 350
Page: 377
My rating: 4/5



I liked to read Foreign books because you can know about the different cultures. This is my first read by this author and he does not disappoint the reader. This story is a joy to read and you never know what is going to happen next. It was bit difficult to read the names of the characters in the book. I was mixed up because of the similar names. This is Japanese book which is being translated to English. Keigo Higashino has definitely done a great job by concentrating more on the case than on the characters themselves, especially from those in the police department.   

The story plot is something like this. Before being murdered, Yoshitaka Mashiba informs his wife Ayane that he wants a divorce, and she decides to go away for the weekend to visit her family in Hokkaido, leaving Yoshitaka alone in the house. While Ayane is in Hokkaido, Yoshitaka's lover, Hiromi, visits him on Saturday. When she returns to his house on Sunday, she finds him in his living room, dead from arsenic poisoning. It's clear from the beginning of this book that the victim had been poisoned. The poison was in the water which he used to make his coffee. The most likely suspect would be his wife of one year or his mistress who is three months pregnant. The problem with the wife is that she was in Hokkaido (the northern most of the large islands) and the victim was in Tokyo one thousand miles away.

From hereon in 80% of the dialogue is related to the water used to make the coffee and how the poison got into the water. Over and over and over the participant in the investigation ask each other, "How did the poison get into the water for the coffee?" It's especially confusing in the mistress had come over the night after the wife left, made coffee that night and in the morning before she left.

Just keep one thing in mind while reading the book, please make sure you concentrate as the character names can get quite confusing as regards to the gender as well as their placement.

Really enjoyed the simple, yet smart writing and plot. This is a clever novel. It is definitely an interesting story and well written. Recommended for those who love a perfect crime/impossible crime story.

Overall simplicity of the murder plot won me over, and thus I'm compelled to give this book a 4 star rating.

From Back cover of the book:
When a man is discovered dead by poisoning in his empty home his beautiful wife, Ayane, immediately falls under suspicion. All clues point to Ayane being the logical suspect, but how could she have committed the crime when she was hundreds of miles away? As Tokyo police detective Kusanagi tries to unpick a seemingly unrelated sequence of events he finds himself falling for Ayane. When his judgement becomes dangerously clouded his assistant must call on an old friend for help; it will take a genius to unravel the most spectacular web of deceit they have ever faced.

My review for the book Tantra by Adi


I am very thankful to blogadda for giving me chance to review the books by different authors. This is my second book from the blogadda. The first one was Bankster by Ravi Subramanian.




Title: Tantra                                                                
Author: Adi
ISBN: 978-81-908636-2-9
Genre: Fantasy Thriller
Publishers: Apeejay Stya Publishing
Price: INR 195
Page: 335
My rating: 3.5

It's a story full of adventure and suspense. Great page turner. I enjoyed it a lot! Tantra by Adi is about heroine who is intelligent, beautiful, powerful and a vampire hunter! Anu Aggarwal is an Indian-American who is recruited by the “Centre” at a young age to become a vampire-hunter. Description is not given how vampire is being created.

The story is something like this. Anu Aggarwal is a vampire doing hunting to save the society from evils. Vampire huntings are done only at night. Anu Aggarwal life changes when Brian her boyfriend is being killed by Vampire. She gets a picture of the killer from the security footage of his apartment She gets to know that killing has a link to Delhi in India. Her dressing changes from leather wearing girl to a salwar-kameez. She follows the killer and ends in Delhi. Where she meets Amit Sethi who is a Delhi local Vampire hunter. In Delhi her life totally changes from New York. Where in New York there is no harmony between Vampires because in New York the vampires went out every night to attack people while in Delhi Vampires lives very sophisticated life.

So while hunting for a Brian killer she encounters with a vampire who is taking child with him. This is a turning point of the Story. Where she kills the vampire but was unable to save the child. Where she gets to knows that children’s from the local slums are being taken away and being killed by Baba Senaka. Baba Senaka is a Tantric who wants to be a powerful man through human sacrifice. Anu Aggarwal has some natural power, with the help of Dr. sharma and Grover She is going to fight him by learning the sattvic methods and thus begins the war of Tantric vs Sattvic.
  

Basically story revolves in Delhi. The Story line is same as protagonist wants to take revenge for her boyfriend being killed by the vampires. The story doesn’t give any detailed on “shifts” and “maya” you doesn’t get to know how anu gets the information of others life by thread. Also how humans are being transformed to supernatural, how healing process is being done. Also the humor of Amit is totally waste you doesn’t get laugh form it.    

About the author:
The author, Adi is a graduate from Stanford University and then Harvard University. He has published a poetry book and a minor textbook before this novel. His style of writing is nice but becomes too descriptive at times. He has promoted his book quite well by creating an official trailer of the book at YouTube apart from creating page at FaceBook and Twitter. However, if you check the website provided at the end of the book www.tantrabyadi.com , you'll be redirected to his Facebook page!

The publisher is Appejay Stya Publishing Pvt Ltd,New Delhi.Kudos to the publishers for the paper quality is very good. It is nice. The printing is very good .The book comes with a bookmark attached by a red satin ribbon bound with the book. At the end of the book ,twitter id & facebook pages of the author Adi have been stated. This is the first novel by Adi ,the author

My rating:
Overall, i would give this book a rating of 3.5/5. It's worth reading if you are out to trying something new.
