Book Review: Murderous Greed

It is difficult to write crime and thriller because maintaining interest of the readers is a big task. The pace of the story should not be extremely fast to make the events unclear and confusing to the readers. It should not be extremely slow otherwise the readers are bound to lose their interest. It should have a perfect amount of twists and turns otherwise the entire story will become twisted and confusing. I am glad that I picked up this book and it was a good attempt by the author.

The story is set up in a small town named Avadi in Chennai. The protagonist Satyajit has been well described and perfectly fits into the situations. Murderous scenes have been well brought into the plot and have been well explained. It is the greed that leads to everything in the book which has been portrayed well. The twists, turns, suspense & murders are just a result of greed.

The best thing about the book is its simple language. This makes it easy to read even for those who are not into a habit of reading. The only thing that I felt that the events moved quite fast at places otherwise the book was a good read.

The cover is appealing with a gun in hand. However, I felt that it could have been better. The title is perfect for the story as it is the greed that led to murders. If you are a fan of thriller and crime novels then you must read this book. If you are not a fan of this genre but want to read a book to kill your boredom then you can give a try to this one too.
