Book Review – JFK – Jhangir Kerawala

Another thriller that I just finished reading. JFK is the another book that I spotted along with The Edge Of The Machete in the Tranquebar newsletter. JFK, if you hear the name takes you to John F. Kenneday, but trust me he is nowhere related with this book. Just a mere co-incidence this is. JFK is a book that you would definitely want to read once you read its synopsis given on the back cover of the book. It goes like this

JFK….a dying man’s last word….A plea, an accusation or a clue?

That’s what the police couldn’t figure out. What they did know was that they had serial murders in broad daylight, and just one suspect with little motive….Jatin F Karunamoi, the dead man’s best friend. 

There’s a lot more written on the back cover, but I would leave it upon you to explore it or better buy the book.

Set up in the city of Joy, Kolkata, the book opens with two murders back to back. One of an old man, named Ram Prasad Sharma and other person is Jatin’s best friend Manish. Before Manish dies, he calls up Jatin to tell him these three letters, JFK and thats how the plot unfolds in the book. More characters get involved, Montu, Jatin’s and Manish’s common friend, Preeti, Inspector Dutt, Raju Singh, Mohan Singh, Tarun Basu and many more. All of them with their clear roles in the plot. Jhangir Kerawala has ensured that the books doesn’t confuse the reader at any point and this is what makes this book a fast paced thriller.

Considering, JFK is Jhangir Kerawala’s debut book, I must say, he has done a good job. He has successfully managed to pen down an absolute page turner that will keep you hooked till the end. The book is divided into two parts, 31 chapters and has 225 pages. Its a joint imprint of Westland Books and Grey Oak India. If you are looking for a something that keeps you hooked for constant 5-6 hours, then this is the book for you. Pick it up. You’d surely enjoy it.
