Story in a nutshell:
Milind, the protagonist, is one of the best police officers. There hasn't been a single case in the records which he hasn't solved. He has a 100% record of solving the most complicated cases. Milind is assigned a case of stolen house. Mr. Roy, a famous lawyer, has filed a complaint for the theft of his bungalow. Milind takes this case to be a simple one and is assured that he would solve it in one day. A series of events occur and Milind is booked on murder charges. The police has found evidence that Milind had killed his wife. Is Milind guilty? How does Milind prove himself innocent? Is the case of stolen house solved?
The title - The Stolen House is intriguing and so is the blurb. You will feel like digging into the pages of the novel and reading the entire book in one go. The plot isn't a common one. There are many surprise elements sprinkled all over the novel. There are moments when you, as a reader, feels that you will solve the case. But it is at this time that the story takes a drastic twist. The narration is done in third person narrative and is done well. The characters - Milind and Mr. Roy are interesting. The pace of the story is fast. I felt that more incidents could have been added. It would have increased the surprise factor of this novel. The manner in which the incidents have been narrated towards the end is confusing. It seems like the author was in hurry to finish writing the climax. Apart from that, the novel is really engaging. It will be a perfect choice for crime lovers.
My overall rating for 'The Stolen House' is 3.5/5 stars.
