What is this book all about?

A newly married bride starting her life in a modern neighborhood is spotted with bruises and wounds by almost everyone, clearly pointing to a dark case of of domestic violence. When the flat is discovered with blood spills and visible signs of violence in the house, there is an obvious possibility of a brutal attack or even a murder of the bride. Both the bride and husband Professor are missing.

As the police investigate further, evidence piles up against the professor, the accused is found finally, But he shocks the police by saying that he was never ever married to any girl.

The story twists and turns with heated arguments of court scenes where the defence and the prosecution collide head along to prove their point. As the reader almost decides that the story has concluded, a blast from the past of the Professor unfolds, revealing the darkest side of the Professor and more skeletons tumble down from the closet. The reader enjoy a roller-coaster ride of a series of shocking, and spine-chilling revelations, that will have your glued till the last page of the novel.


I have always loved crime thrillers. The title and the blurb of the book caught my attention whereas the cover of the book just looked average. The language was simple and easy to understand.  The story has lot of twists and turns and it has an unpredictable ending. It will keep you hooked till the end and you will be curious to know what is going to happen next. The other thing which I disliked in this book was grammatical errors which can be corrected from editing and proof reading.


If you love unique thrillers and they fascinate you then this is recommended who love mystery and crime thrillers.

Rating: 4/5*
