    Description

    Flipkart official Review

    A sure-shot thriller makes you turn pages till you reach the very end. You in fact cannot stop reading and that’s what “Bankerupt” by Ravi Subramanian does to you. He makes you want to reach the end way before you have reached the middle because as a reader you cannot wait to know what happens next. That’s the true test of a thriller and this time this isn’t a banking one.

    There are a lot of sub-plots running through, “Bankerupt”. From a financial hoax to a cryptic clue – the novel spans from the US of A to India to Australia. There is a murder but obviously. Ravi Subramanian’s writing style is impeccable – keeping in mind short chapters to generate interest to the plot which is racy and suspenseful at almost every turn of the page. “Bankerupt” is a quick read. The kind that you can finish on a train journey and be on the edge of your seat at that.

     

    Bankerupt is a fast-paced thriller with a plot that spans different cities across the globe, and a murder that needs to be solved before it’s too late.

    Summary Of The Book

    Bankerupt has three different tracks that run parallel and are interwoven with each other. Readers first meet Cirisha Narayanan, a professor, teaching at the prestigious MIT in Boston. Honesty is of utmost importance to her. Her life turns upside down when she learns of her husband’s elaborate scheme for a financial fraud. Being a principled woman, she threatens to expose her husband’s wrongdoings unless he mends his ways. Does this give the husband a motive for murder?

    Bankerupt then paints a picture of Aditya Raisinghania, Cirisha’s husband. He is a banker and loves taking risks even if it involves malpractices. He makes use of his skill and the people he knows to come up with a racket that will take him up the corporate ladder. However, the bank soon finds out about his deceptive ways and he loses his job. Following a huge showdown with his wife, he becomes the main accused in the murder. But does that prove his innocence and clear his name?

    The third track revolves around Cirisha’s father, a businessman. He is influenced by his son-in-law’s malpractices and wishes to make a quick buck with illegal schemes. Will his daughter find out about this? How far does he go in his desire to get rich quickly? All three tracks come neatly tied together at the end, leading to a nail-biting finish.

    Thoroughly engrossing!

    The 319 page book is a true thriller that involves economical fraud, politics at education institution, murder of the characters, all driven by desire and greed! The story is quick paced without a single boring or dull moment. It keeps you riveted throughout. At least I was engrossed thoroughly! Subramanian’s style of writing is unique where he keeps the chapters short, interesting enough to keep readers at the edge of their seats.

    The character portrayal is good, could have been better tho...

    Unputdownable!

    Ravi Subramanian’s novels deviate significantly from thrillers written by other Indian authors with their settings as the dingy ghettos of Mumbai and Delhi. The author loves his criminals to be high profile bankers, well qualified company executives, first time entrepreneurs, top class academicians. His characters are not the shabby looking, smutty clothed, knife wielding bastards left on the streets by their uncaring fathers; they are men of resources, most of them young, ambitious, shrewd a...

    Good one - gripping story

    Good story line as you always expect from the author, how the retails shop can be used for the ill-will of a person in the top and how the money laundry happens are detailed. Light weight but good one.
