Book Review – Fifty Fifty
Author: Surender Mohan Pathak
Book Blurb – Shobhana had gone to Dharmesh with a straightforward proposal. If they had embarked on the plan, they would end filling their coffers with crores. But the mission was fraught with perils. Bloodshed was a sure thing when this high society escort and pimp came together to upset the pyramid of power in the world of crime.
About the Book – This book was written long back in the time when mobiles and many other facilities available today did not exist. The environment and other things are set according to the story. The story starts with a letter and keeps on moving with small incidents in a lady’s life, who is a cabre dancer of those times. She gets a map from one of her clients turned boyfriend and the rest of the story moves around the map. She finds her old friend who once has acted as a pimp for her. They both agreed for the partnership of 50 percent and taking risks and unravel the mystery. During this journey, they come across many difficulties, that they pass. How they reach, what all different conditions they face, whether the results were as expected or not is all about the story. The story is well written and perfectly suits to those times. The continuous movement of the story keeps filling the thrill within you.
My Critique – I like the suspense stories and this is one of them. The writer has studied the things very minutely before incorporating them into the story. Police interrogations are well portrayed. On the spot, situation handling is well depicted. Things are not odd in the story. The main game keeps changing with time. As the story moves and new characters join. The suspense remains there till the last page. Overall the story is free from time boundaries and thrills you with impact.
