    Description

    Six Suspects is a light hearted detective story revolving around the murder of the playboy son of a corrupt politician.

    Summary Of The Book

    Vivek 'Vicky' Rai is the spoilt playboy son of a corrupt politician. He is throwing a party to celebrate his acquittal following a trial for the murder of a bartender. It is a publicly known fact that he did murder Ruby Gill, the bartender at a swanky restaurant, because she refused to  serve him a drink.

    During the course of the party, Vivek is shot dead, and the incident makes for sensational headline news. The police have arrested six suspects who were present at the party, six people who are as different from each other as possible, yet all seem to have had a motive to see Vicky dead.
    There is a gullible, naive American from Texas, who fell in love with a Bollywood starlet just on seeing her photograph, believing her to be a mail order bride. He is in India to claim his prize. Then, there is an aspiring Bollywood actress, a corrupt bureaucrat, a petty thief, a tribal from the Andaman islands, and the father of the victim himself. Slowly, the author reveals why each of them could have murdered Vicky, each having their own motive. Each of these Six Suspects also inexplicably have a loaded gun in their possession.

    The starlet seems to have a guilty secret and the mobile phone thief has big ambitions. The politician father seems to have wanted his son dead for some reason. The tribesman from Andaman is on a quest to recover some sacred stone stolen from his people.

    Then, there is the sleazy bureaucrat Mohan Kumar. He was flying high until his retirement, indulging his weaknesses, which are many. And then one day, he took part in a seance and decided that he is Mahatma Gandhi and wants justice for the murdered bartender.

    Amidst this crazy setup, the true motives for the murder and the identity of the criminal is revealed. But, not before the novel goes into entertaining sublots which involve the suspects. The starlet Shabnam has a double and the American becomes a tempting target for terrorists because of a confusion over his name, which he shares with one of the co-founders of Google.

    Six Suspects is a funny and entertaining whodunit.

    (NOT) A GOOD READ

    If you are looking for a mystery, thriller or a crime book, this is not for you. This is just a plain drama about 6 inter-related characters with a murder plot.

    The start of the book is interesting but the character descriptions and their mundane lives drag on endlessly.

    The author has tried to show the general lives of Rich, Powerful, Poor, Slums etc. in India.

    Definitely NOT a Murder Mystery.

    Holds your interest

    This book definitely holds your interest till the end. This is a typical masala story with well narrated characters and the plot. There are enough turns and twists in the book to keep you reading and guessing. I recommend reading this book.

    Awesome murder mystery

    This is how suspense stories should be. Definitely one of the best suspenses ever written by an Indian writer. The way Mr. Swarup has mixed up the characters and the climax that simply emerges in the end... wow! Can't describe it. Best to read it alone so that no one disturbs!

    Excellent Book

    I thought the book was a very interesting read. The characters developed well, though a couple dragged a bit in the middle, but everything came together at the end. The twists came fast and the story took a wholly different turn at the end. Worth a read.

    Indian Masala

    First of all - this is more of a masala book which a lot of Indians would relate to.

    Not a thriller / mystery per se... but more of stories culminating to form the climax.

    Character buildup is good - and that what keep you turning those pages. The climax at the end - well most of us would like it!!!

    Somehow I liked this better than Q&A....

    SATISFACTORY..

    Its a good read but some part are definitely boring..based on some parts of real life crime stories ...the climax is also inspired from the movie "the wednesday"...I expected more from Vikas Swaroop after reading his bestseller " question and answer"...

    Amazing

    I absolutely loved the climax of this book. Totally unexpected.

    The six stories are all described very well. It almost feels like reading 6 different books. There were a few dull moments in the book, but when reading that, I always waited for the other story to begin.

    The liberal use of characters based on our real life celebrities also adds spice to this book.
    One of the must reads.
