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.
