After a good August of covering all books that were left behind somehow, this September #TBR is all about Crime Fiction! Honestly, since the time I started this blog, crime fiction is a genre that has got left behind by me. There was a time when for me fiction genre was only about Crime Fiction. And now I have decided to revive the mystery, mayhem, murder, and brains again.
So, here are few of the selected books that I will be covering under Crime Fiction this month;
Patang by Bhaskar Chattopadhyay
In the middle of the worst monsoon of Mumbai, a man is found brutally murdered, his body found hanging like a kite on the tallest cell tower in the city. As one corpse after another turns up, the Mumbai police realize that they have got something more on their hands than they can deal with. Accepting the fact that the case is going out of their hand, they seek the help of Chandrakant Rathod, a freelance investigator who has a good track record of catching such killers. But will he be able to judge this killer’s next move?? 100 pages down already, I can’t stop reading this one. Will share the review soon.
Chain of Custody by Anita Nair
One of my favorite authors, Anita Nair’s latest book Chain of Custody is another piece that I will be covering this month and I am really looking forward to it. The last book of Nair’s that I read was the Alphabet Soup, which was a delightful read. Now a transition to Crime Fiction is something that seems really exciting for me. Chain of Custody follows the story of Inspector Gowda, who is searching for a missing girl but the case takes such a turn that he comes face to face with Bangalore’s child-trafficking racket. Now Gowda must race towards a finishing line that he can’t see yet.
Muzaffar Jang series by Madhulika Liddle
Madhulika Liddle is an author who was recommended to me by a colleague of mine. Her muse, Muzaffar Jang is a nobleman turned detective in the Mughal era. The series follows his escapades, the cases he solves with poise and sharp brains. Madhulika Liddle’s muse makes up for a great read, at least that is what I have heard. Following are the books that I will be covering under the series:
The Englishman’s Cameo
The Eighth Guest
Apart from all the crime fiction, I will also be covering two amazing YA books that I have recently received;
We Were Liars by E.Lockhart
Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
So, I am looking forward to a great crime fiction September. In case you are reading something awesome in this genre, make sure to share in the comment section.
Till then, Happy Reading! 🙂
