The title is so intriguing that you would compel you to start reading and also the cover looks cool which justifies the title.
The story is about a financially broke and on the verge of a divorcee man Neil. He joins literature at the uni and starts working at a restaurant. As he is getting a divorce his wife kicks him out of the house. Having nowhere to go, he stays with his friend Jason, who breeds horses for a living.
That’s when the whole world of Neil gets him into the puddle of a murderer who thinks nothing bad could happen in his already god forsaken life, Jason’s murder. Jason was killed and the blood is now on the hands of Neil though he isn’t the actual culprit.
The story actually takes off from the point where Jason is murdered. Neil in order to prove himself innocent adorns the role of detective and fumbles into a deep mafia of illegal horse breeding.
The way Neil sleuth’s the case is admirable. It isn’t like the regular type of mystery solving where the protagonist was always good at sleuthing but a case where his life depended ,as we know necessity can turn a pussy into a wild cat, the regular , frustrated Neil becomes a detective and investigates the murder of his friend to save his life. The way Neil investigates has a new touch of mystery solving.
The mystery is very well plotted and the way the story unfolds keeps the reader glued to the story from the beginning. The style of narration is really good.
The blurb though sounds plain but the book is an amazing read for anyone who enjoys mystery thrillers.
