    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.

    Thoroughly gripping and interesting plot, very relatable to real scenarios.

    The first of its kind based on India's corporate scenario this book keeps you guessing till the end. Fast paced, the suspense just keeps getting better and leaves you mind blown at the end. Impossible to keep the book down until you are done, every little detail has been brilliantly interwoven! Thrilled to know its the work of an indian author, cant wait for more books from RV Raman!

    Engaging thriller, but not very interesting

    This is a corporate thriller with banking and audit backdrop.

    I would recommend this to anyone who loves fiction and crime thrillers. Story is fast paced, well explained and climax is good.
    Author is successful in keeping reader in suspense till the end. All clues are open to the reader allowing him to guess the fraudster, but it is not easy. Characterization of Varsha, Kunal and Ranade is good. Smallest details about banking jargon and hacking of blackberry and mail servers are explained w...

    Gripping Corporate Murder Mystery

    Knowing RV Raman well and what he stands for, a disclosure: he is a good friend, mentor and former colleague of the reviewer.

    A very good first attempt by RV Raman. The book stands our for its fast pace, an engaging plot that keeps you guessing till the end and a large cast of characters many of whom could be the villain, adding to the mystery.

    Given the number of banking scams that we see unravelling in India, while this is a work of fiction, the context that is paints appears real and pla...

    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.
