    Flipkart Official  Review

    You do not need much on a Sunday afternoon besides a great thriller and a cup of tea or coffee. A good crime thriller always gets the pace going to continue reading and not let go. Piyush Jha’s new book, “Compass Box Killer” is just a perfect read when it comes to that.

    “Compass Box Killer” starts with the murder of a senior police officer, and that too at his own desk. Inspector Virkar (from Mumbaistan) is back in action trying to decipher what really happened, when the only clues appear through cryptic notes found in compass boxes. A series of murders start taking place all over the city (Mumbai) and he has to solve these with the help of a TV reporter Raashi Hunerwal.

    Since Piyush is also a film director, the book almost reads like a movie. A fast-paced movie at that. Nothing seems to be moving at a slow pace which is much needed for a book like this. A one-time read but a good one for sure.

     

    The Compass Box Killer is a spine-chilling crime thriller, which will keep the readers glued to the book. The book is about a series of murder that takes place in Mumbai, and Inspector Virkar has to race against time to find the killer.

    Summary of the Book

    The Compass Box Killer is the story based in the by-lanes of Mumbai. A senior police officer is found murdered at his desk one afternoon. Inspector Virkar, from the Crime Branch has been appointed to investigate the case. With this begins a series of killings and in each a compass box at the crime scene reveals clues that can alone lead Virkar to the killer. Virkar is accompanied by an attractive and suave journalist, Raashi Hunerwal in his investigation, which makes him shuttle between Mumbai and Belgaum.

    Pacy

    I ended up getting this book to cover my delivery charges, but at the day it turned out to be a wonderful page turner... feels like you are in a movie running through it.

    Have not read the earlier book by this author but now feel like getting that too.

    A bit disappointed

    I have read Mumbaistaan, and this one fails to match any thing to it. The suspense, thrill, pace whcih the three stories of Mumbatistaan had, it is lacking.

    The motto of killer is vague and there is even a mistake in one of the scenes of Inspector Virkar with the Reporter..!! I think writer got too excited writing that scene and made that slight small mistake..!!1
    Over all ok read.

    An excellent Bambaiya Novel!

    Very well written, sharp, with a rocking and well written plot. Much better than Mumbaistan. Go for it for a very racy novel with an intelligent plot.

    Good Thriller

    It is a good thriller that starts off pretty nicely but gets a bit predictable at the end.

    And if you have also read Mumbaistaan then u would feel that the female characters are getting a bit stereotyped.

    filmy material

    The book feels like a movie, u read it and u'll feel like ur watching a movie. But the thing is, its more like a movie script rather than a novel, which it achieves to be. Feels quite like a Bollywood Movie. It doesn't have any literary value but has quite a good plot. Its okay for passing time.

    pleasantly surprised but overall not bad

    To be frank I just picked up the book online to save on my delivery cost. I thought I should not be prejudiced towards indian authors. Was it worth it? It was. I'll tell you the reasons.

    The description of simple and not so simple emotions have been well done by Jha. He has a peculiar writing style that makes you feel you are at a vantage point watching the scene he is describing.

    The language is free flowing and keeps you engaged.

    I havent read mumbaistan as yet however the way bombay has...
