This is the author’s second book in my kitty and he doesn’t disappoint.
Chelembra, a small town in Kerala was caught in the eye of a storm when it became the hotspot of India’s largest bank heist. 80 kg of gold and cash amounting to about 8 crores INR were stolen in what seemed to be a perfect crime. However, the commendable efforts of the Kerala Police under the able leadership of P. Vijayan thwarted the criminal intents and not only recovered the loot but also strengthened the belief that crime never pays.
The salient features of the book are:
- impeccable research where the author worked at the grassroots to gain first-hand information about the investigation process and what transpired.
- The author has taken us on a journey from both ends, the mastermind’s mind and the Inspector in charge making this nothing short of a movie playing.
A sensational thriller to the core, this is a must-read.
