Cut Like Wound by Anita Nair
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Its not a classic who-dun-it, but Anita's words bring alive a side of Bangalore that not many of us would know.The pace is a little slow , but atmospheric, making it an an extremely clever book to spend time with. Though Inspector Gowda is no heart-throb, Anita has chiselled his character well.Lots of research has gone into the making of this book , and it shows. But a word of caution: do not pick this book up because you liked Ladies Coupe and be willing to give a slow police procedural book a chance, and you'll be pleasantly surprised at how much you end up liking the book.
Overall,Literary popular fiction(the book reads like literary fiction in bits , and like popular fiction sometimes) for people who don't mind slow murder mysteries.
