A car crash in the dark hours of dawn claims the lives of two passengers, leaving their seventeen-year-old son in the backseat severely injured.
A procedural investigation ensues. The police detect little mystery but no foul play. Downplaying the findings of Forensics department, the police conclude that the driver, Mr. Abhay Mishra, had dozed off behind the wheel, leading to the fatal accident. The survivor and remaining members of the family accept this and make peace with their fate.
However, the investigation takes a new twist once the Bombay Crime Bureau takes charge.
A Great Introduction to a New Author!
When a car goes off the road in darkness, the couple in the front seats both die while their son, sitting behind, survives but with severe injuries. Despite the forensic report, the local police force deem it an accident due to the driver falling asleep at the wheel. Then the Bombay Crime Bureau take over the case .. and they are nothing if not thorough . . .
This is a short story, an introduction to a new series and it does the job very well. We get to know the main characters and their modus operandi and it is a thrilling tale. With an excellent use of language, I was pulled in from the first page and will certainly be looking out for more in the series. If you fancy something new and just a tad different, I definitely recommend this! 4.5*.
