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.

Seems the story is a good one and taking readers to their good old days where only letters existed is something good to go in a time our lives halt if we are away from mobile phones
The book seems interesting, will check out if it has a kindle version. I like to read thrillers and I found it more interesting because of the time period that it is set in.

Thriller or suspense fiction books are my absolute favorite. The review has made me crave for this book now, I will be picking it up soon.
It must be quite the challenge to write a story that is set in a time where there were no mobiles or social media. It would also make such a cool writing exercise!
50/50 That’s an intriguing title. And your review shows it to be an intriguing book as well.
I hope to get my hands on this one in the near future.
The review is neat, compact and just right.
I really like suspense thrillers. This really looks like an interesting one. I shall definitely get my hands on this.
A good mystery is always welcome. I would pick this book. And good that it is written in the past era.. That would make it interesting I can see..
A very honest and smart review. But it’s a Hindi book would love to read it though it might take sometime for me to complete it.
i also love suspense stories and mysteries. i like when the authors do their homework about the things they want to include into the book. i mean, I don’t like having questions at the end of the read.
An honest crisp review of a book pushing me to grab it soon will definitely check this out.
