    Description

    The Girl from Nongrim Hills: by Ankush Saikia, is the thrilling story of a guitarist, a beautiful woman and an arms deal gone all wrong.

    Summary of the Book

    Bok is a guitar player in a Shillong band, who has a lot on his mind. Kitdor, his elder brother, has lost 50 lakh rupees on a trip to Nagaland, while buying arms for a group of militants. Kitdor is given only a week’s time to repay the money and the only person who can help him is his even-tempered younger brother. Bok, on the other hand, finds himself in a helpless situation until a chance meeting with a lovely woman offers him a desperate answer. But soon, it turns out that the unfortunate musician is caught in the tangled web of lies of the woman. He must outwit her, and the politicians, militants and cops she leaves in her wake, and finally find the 50 lakhs in time to save his Kitdor. Will he be successful in all his attempts?

    Chills, thrills and nostalgia !

    A crime thriller - suspense and action around the very places i grew up in ! I could visualize each place and the fast pace ensured I was hooked from the first page to the last. Kudos to Ankush for the engrossing narrative and for portraying Shillong for what she is !!! This book is definitely a must read.

    Novel on background of north easter India

    This was the first time I read a novel on background of north eastern Indian states. It was a good change from usual metro and rural background of north or south Indian states. I did not know that Shillong is the rock capital of India.

    Author has given a detailed description of Bok's travels on bike within Shillong, which road he took, which place he passed, which turn he took and so on. Initially you like it because you are acclimatizing with Shillong, but later on you don't appreciate the ...

    Disapppointing

    What initially attracted me about the book was the title...being as I am from Shillong and there being so little that is written about us. But on reading the book, I hated it. The narrative was boring....I didn't like how the story started and the ending was cliche. One of the worst books that I have read. I would suggest serious readers to give the book a pass. It was a total waste of time.

    A Compelling narrative that keeps you at the edge throughout

    I always liked noir, but I always missed one thing from all those books - they were based either in New York or Mumbai. This book was set in a town where I grew up and can relate to the places and can visualize the scenes.

    The cover has beautiful girl with an automatic pistol pointing at you that is enough to tempt you to buy the book.

    The story is of a typical Shillong guy, Bok who is a guitarist in a band called The Wedding Band when he faces a murky situation and he tries to get out of ...

    A Brilliant, Captivating Read!!!

    From the moment I saw the cover till I turned the last page, this noir thriller was simply un-put-down able! The author's lucid style of writing, impressive details of the locales/characters, and the good build up of the plot definitely proves to be very engrossing! Got me captivated till the end & loved every bit of the dark, grim-tone in the thriller! Worth a buy, for sure !
