      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    When the corrupt are bent on having their way, life becomes hell for the honest

    Storyline – Interesting, intriguing, insightful. The plot is topical and gripping right from the word 'go'. 'Fraudster' is not just an ordinary crime- thriller or murder mystery. It is an insight into the greed, the treachery lurking inside the corridors of Corporate India. It is a story of corruption, manipulations and the rot that has set in the banking circles.Here we get to see a web of crime driven by the greed for illicit finance. When the stakes are high crime and vicious manipulation ...

    Excellent

    Take a bow Mr. Raman. At last a true Suspense / Mystery novel based completely in India. The plot characters are all real to life and one can easily relate with them. It is really fast paced. Never bores or drifts in between like most other mystery novels. I hope more such books are out by him.

    A thrilling read

    It was quite a thrilling read, a roller coaster of a trip. Pacy with a few surprises thrown in, as the tension just keeps building. It kept me up till the wee hours of the night.

    A nicely crafted mystery in a well narrated thriller.

    excellent corporate thriller

    an Indian thriller worthy of the tag 'corporate thriller', a page-turner at its best. very little corporate jargon yet explains how banks can be defrauded -- and even more relevant with recent news references to scandals at public sector banks! highly recommended!

    Interesting read

    Story was well-paced, and could relate well in the current context Follows the good principles of a gripping murder mystery plot - there were enough characters to be suspicious about, operating in the context of a larger game. What I found quite distinct in the book (in comparison to others) is the use of the English language - clear, simple, no profanity

    Riveting read!

    "Fraudster" is superbly fast-paced, with well-drawn characters and a very nice story line, set against the backdrop of the financial sector. The finance elements of the story are not at all esoteric; they can be easily understood by a broad readership, while finding chilling empathy with finance practitioners. The action sequences are thrilling, making this book a one-session, riveting read. What I especially liked is that this book has crisp language, narrates a jolly good story, and does no...

    First of its kind!

    An excellent book, and the first of its kind that I have read. Extremely fitting for the present scenario in the country. It has an interesting murder, but which is a part of a grander scheme which makes it all the more exciting. Great read, I really enjoyed myself.
