The latest from Ravi Subramanian (If God was a Banker, Devil in Pinstripes, The Incredible Banker) had blockbuster written all over it with. Familiar premise in which the author excels in, exciting plot outline (frauds, murders, terror trail) and a good, strong marketing buzz preceding the launch. And to cut to the chase, the book does lives up to every bit of the huge expectations and DELIVERS A KNOCK-OUT PUNCH! It’s a riveting page-turner like all its predecessors and a smash-hit all the way.
- On atleast 2 occasions the story jolts you like a thunderbolt. In true thriller style, it hits you hard in the gut and catches you completely off-guard.
- The multi-track stories are so distant, so distinct, so apart, that it’s impossible to place a common thread till the very last 50-odd pages. Now isn’t that a major success for any worth-its-salt whodunit?
- As indicated earlier, the canvas is much bigger, neatly intertwined and richly characterized than ever before.
- And finally, a brilliantly maverick and ‘i-CONic’ plot twist towards the climax takes ‘The Bankster’ many notches above all its predecessors.
