Review

For pulling off a thriller, the book needs to be huge, the character have to be numerous so that the suspense element is maintained throughout. This preset notion was changed by Ruskin bond in his book Perfect Murder. Nonetheless many did not dare to venture the same because to build up a plot and suspense simultaneously in lesser words is a challenging task.

Prasoon through his book Homicide@Caramello pulls of a similar attempt with success. The name itself is enough to excite the readers. Apparently the whole story in nutshell is the name itself. Caramello is a coffee shop inside hotel Hans. A murder that happened inside Caramello is the theme of the whole book. A man is madly in love with his wife Riya who is pregnant. Riya stumbles upon something that spoils her sleep for good. She tries to reach to the bottom of it. Where she is led to in this attempt forms the rest of the book. 

Each chapter ends with a suspense. Be it Riya's apprehensions or Dia's intrigue or Aman's interests, readers are forced to go on.The snippets of suspense in the end is the highlight of the book. Whatsoever thoughts the readers have, will be reinforced and reignited with these snippets. The unexpected twist in the penultimate chapter is commendable. It is not beyond the realm of reason but still comes across as a surprise. The climax could have been work on a bit more but the pros of such an approach is that it makes the reader read the book once more and mull over what it meant.
