When a young woman is found lifeless in a pool of her own blood, everyone is convinced that it is her college sweetheart who murdered her. The victim’s step-brothers, Rishabh and Arya,embark on a journey to unearth the truth, a journey riddled with fallacies and conspiracies, planted intentionally. What connection is there between a missing blue envelope, a misplaced sweater and stray footprints in a room. Could those people they thought they knew so well be hiding dark secrets about their past? Or did their dead sister have more to hide than they imagined?


I had been on a break from books and crime thrillers has always been my favorite genre. This particular book was on my TBR for very long. The book kept me hooked from the beginning till the end and I was very curious to know who was the killer. The characters, narration, timing, love, affairs were well described. One more thing which I liked the most was the usage of Spanish and Italian language. The only thing which disappointed me was it was sloppy in some parts and there were issues with the grammar.

Favorite lines

When we look up towards the sky and see swollen clouds of different shapes, we sometimes see resemblance between the cloud and a rabbit,or a puppy or the shape of a heart. It is a type of make-believe game, almost like life where we keep seeing things the way we want them to be.
