Book Review - Bhrigu Mahesh, PhD- The Witch Of Senduwar By Nisha Singh




Bhrigu Mahesh, PhD- The Witch Of Senduwar

Author : Nisha Singh
Genre : Crime Thriller
Publisher : Patridge India
Book's Epigram :
In the idyllic village of Senduwar, fortune seems to smile on its poor residents when they discover precious pieces of a lost treasure accumulating on an abandoned floodplain purportedly haunted by the spirit of an angry witch.
The gold pursuit that follows benefits the lives of many but destroys that of a mother when her son, Malthu, dies in a freak accident a few feet from the treasure site. The superstitious villagers believe that the witch, Jiyashree, has risen from her sleep to punish Malthu- the first person to invade her resting place. Fearful, they abandon the hunt and return to their homes. When detective Bhrigu Mahesh arrives on the scene, the mother asks for his help to clear the mystery behind Malthu’s mysterious death. As Mahesh begins investigating with his unique style, he soon finds himself on the trail of a murderer that leads him to unveil astonishing secrets, beguiling lies, and s tragic tale of a selfless young girl.
In this compelling thriller, a great detective on a quest to solve a complex mystery must separate truth from legend in order to find a killer and restore order in an Indian village.

My Critique:
The book is nicely written and to the point. The story has a flow that keeps you with itself. The book is written in multiple chapters and every chapter is appropriately lengthy.  The characterization is strong  and vital to the movement of the tale. All the characters  are down-to earth and they are realistic.  The story undergoes several twists and turns and at one point when you almost conclude whom to suspect, you are in for a surprise when Bhrighu Mahesh puts it the other way and eliminates the person as the suspect. “Bhrighu Mahesh, PhD “ The witch of Senduwar is a crime fiction written in the most  fluent fashion  of genius like Sherlock Homes, the fictional private detective , aided by the technique of observation. This logically  marvelous  book is woven with a beautiful social mysterious  drama in a literary style. 

The narration is carried out in a very effective manner and the plot is very good. Finally not only does Bhrighu Mahesh solves the mystery and turns the garden of witch Jiyashree's into a place that no one will ever fear to step into.
