Book : You Beneath Your Skin
Author : Damyanti Biswas
Blurb : It’s a dark, smog-choked new Delhi winter. Indian American single mother Anjali Morgan juggles her job as a psychiatrist with caring for her autistic teenage son. She is in a long-standing affair with ambitious police commissioner Jatin Bhatt – An irresistible attraction that could destroy both their lives. Jatin’s home life is falling apart: his handsome and charming son is not all he appears to be, and his wife has too much on her plate to pay attention to either husband or son. But Jatin refuses to listen to anyone, not even the sister to whom he is deeply attached. Across the city there is a crime spree: slum women found stuffed in trash bags, faces and bodies disfigured by acid. And as events spiral out of control Anjali is horrifyingly at the centre of it all … in a sordid world of poverty, misogyny, and political corruption, Jatin must make some hard choices. But what he unearths is only the tip of the iceberg. Together with Anjali he must confront old wounds and uncover long-held secrets before it is too late.
To begin with, I loved the cover page. The red colour, and the imprint of girl on the fonts and text makes it really attractive. It will surely make you pick this book in a bookstore. The concept is very thrilling and interesting. I won’t go much into the story because I want you to read it, but all I will say is this book is a blockbuster.Full of suspense, thriller, murder this book is a nail bitter. It highlights the parts of the society which have been a taboo. I must say, the author has done some amazing job writing this book. The language used is easy, narration is perfect, the story and the concept will blow your mind once you get connected with it. I liked the ending.
Overall this is one of the best books I have read till date. If you want to read a full power packed book, which has all the elements you will love, then this book should surely be your next pick.
