Young, vivacious and an aspiring writer, Riya wants nothing more from her longtime crush/boyfriend than to let her in on one of his exciting investigations. After all, what better source material for a book than a real life tragedy? No-nonsense veteran cop, Rohan picks a case of probable suicide to satisfy Riya’s needs. Little does he know that there is more to this case than meets the eye. What made the victim hang herself at the break of dawn? What is the secret that her group of friends is hiding? Will Riya be able to salvage a workable plot for her upcoming novel out of this case of seemingly simple suicide?

A Perfect Crime Thriller

The book is full of mystery and suspense. The author has done full justice to the elements of novel writing. The way the characters are delineated is appreciable. Its not easy to portray a complex character like that of Riya and a flat one, Rohan. The story can be read in just a couple of hours and has that engrossing capability. The way the author has shown its plot development is impeccable. The poetic lines and diction is enthralling. Hence, it surpasses all the qualities of a perfect susp...

A Minute to death

The very 1st time I read a crime novel A minute to death . The story goes on very thrillingly and until the final slot the tempo of the suspense could not be find out. A amazing novel which could not be placed down until the reader completes it. I was immensely pleased and wondered how the writer kept the suspense throughout. Hats off to the author and the novel. Thanks for the complement copy sent by the author Ganga before releasing it .

A no nonsense whodunit that sags almost at no place

Disclaimer: I received this book from the author free of cost in return for a honest review.

Now that we got rid of that simple formality, we can get into our usual mode of fun review. I generally don't review books that I don't feel like reviewing and there are books from the other extreme - those that I can not wait to push my thoughts out to the world about - be it good or bad. Now this is one of those books. I will do my best not to give out any spoilers along the review.

Book: A Minute...

A MINUTE TO DEATH by Ganga Bharani (My Rating: 4/5)

REVIEWER'S NOTES

'I don't like thrillers but I read it because I know that I can't be partial with any genre as an honest book reviewer. I liked the book A MINUTE TO DEATH since I read author's detail acknowledgement in beginning of the book. Authoress gives credits to almost everyone who helped her directly or indirectly to come her dream true. Though A MINUTE TO DEATH is a thriller, authoress adds some romantic scenes in the story, so the book doesn't feel boring. It seems that authoress G...

A Minute to Death - A page turner

Such a thin story line, can one do magic out of it? Ganga Bharani did it in her A Minute to Death The story triggers with a girl hanging from the ceiling. Lead characters Riya and Rohan starts getting down to brass tacks of this unusual suicide, from there sprawls the unexpected openings. Unexpected openings in sense, an absolute never anticipated openings. While travelling along the book, the cuteness which Riya and Rohan shares compliments the story lane and was very well blended. Its like ...

Just Simply Awesome!!!

Not a moment you would stay calm keeping the book aside incomplete; It will tempt you read it all along. Every page will make a curiosity to know what would happen then. Will pass freaking tremors in your nerves. A very well structured story and the characterization of the characters were incredible. Talking about the author, she has did a great job. Narration at the peak. Wish she deserves a lot. The thoughts of the author is, seriously, creative. Predicting the next scene will always be a d...

Typical Ganga's Writing - Gripping, Shocking and A Page Turner!

It is a pacy read. With about 140 pages in total, the A Minute To Death is definitely a quick read. Ganga throws in her caliber of writing a page-turner into the narration and it definitely works. Right from the mention of the suicide, it grabs your attention and keeps you thinking about all the possibilities.

In the heart of it is a small love story that exists between Rohan and Riya, which acted as a literary relief from the tensed atmosphere in the book.

The book is gripping, engaging an...

Simple yet profound

Ganga Bharani, author of ‘A Minute to Death’ started her book reading session yesterday with : "We write, to be read. Not to be acknowledged."
How deep could a simple sentence like that mean?
What is the ultimate desire of any artiste passionate about his/her work? To be noted for their work as a token of self-validation? Or to know for self that they have reached the bar they always looked up at?
To what extent would one go to achieve that target? Could efforts for passion cross the bounda...

Good second outing.

Suicide. Murder. Social Media. A Birthday dare gone wrong. Peppered with some old school romance. If this seems like something out of your daily newspaper, the author’s understanding of the reading populace of today is spot on.

An inquisitive (overtly?) writer girlfriend & a seemingly stoic cop boyfriend meet at the scene of an urban suicide. As the author would have it, they are not your run-of-the-mill disjoint couple. What the reader gets is an odd amalgamation of personalities. Something...
