Written around twenty-five hundred years ago, Heraclitus declared that energy is the essence of the matter, that everything becomes energy in flux, in relativity. Fragments if a form of collected writings by the Greek, since the title and the context of the book both suggest that.

BOOK REVIEW: Murderous Greed by Arun Nair

Crime Fiction is one of my favourites genre to read. I can read books falling under this genre in no time. In my reading years, after reading both classics and contemporary crime fiction novels, I have concluded that a good crime fiction is written with variant in its narrative pace. Not only it keeps the reader driving forward, continue the guess work, but it eliminates the possibility of having dragging components in between. Murderous Greed by Arun K is an excellent example of that.

Not all nightmares arouse questions, some give away answers too.

The Shadow of Darkness is the second book in the series of “It’s Never Too Late”, picks the journey of a mother and a daughter from the first book. Written by Priyanka Baranwal, an Indian author who has a very detailing writing style, this novel revolves around the theme of childhood trauma.

The blurb of the book is so well written with the ease of simplicity, that I am going to share with you since I cannot express it with more clarity.

When Maya fought two criminals one night and saved herself and her five-year-old daughter, Sejal, she thought the worst was over. But was it really? Or, there could be something worse than the worst? The childhood trauma that little Sejal did not deserve resulted in nightmares, trust issues, and bizarre habits. Even after thirteen long years, the night continues to haunt and debilitate her senses with its magnificence, and as if it wasn’t enough, an encounter with the remains of past slips her deep into a treacherous darkness.
