MY OPINION: This is my third book of author R.V. Raman and I must say that he has kept his wall of reputation intact by delivering another nail biting thriller. 

The way author has detailed out the working of e-tailers is really someone gets to know only by being in the top brass of such platform or after doing thorough research. 

The art of keeping the fiction plot intact and intriguing along with technical details is something Raman likes to cradle. 

The dirt of silicon valley, Bengaluru, reaches across the different continent with a lady inspector who is no less than a tomboy is desperate to crack the biggest case of her career, will keep you glued to your chair. 

The narration and pace of the story are fast from the beginning and is maintained till the end. Nowhere I felt it was getting soggy. But one needs to have patience as story progress with detail and technical analysis of the e-tailers working pattern. It may slow down some of the readers thought I found it fascinating.

A point or two doesn’t seem to get connected in the end but as it is said, ‘like no perfect crime, no perfect fiction exist…’I’ll strongly recommend this book to my followers if you are in the financial crime/thriller genre. And not only this one but the previous works of R.V. Raman too are worth reading, FRAUDSTER and INSIDER.
