This is the second book by Salil Desai after 'The Body In The Back Seat'. Murder on a side street is a very simple and straight forward thriller novel mainly based on the life of some freshly passed college students who have just started their job life.

Three couples-six friends Sandeep, Divya, Kapil, Sharmeen, Jerry and Aarushi are very much irritated with there present job life. Among them Sandeep has the most irritating boss, Wadhwa, who constantly abuses him and threatens to spoil his career

Murder on the Side Street by Salil Desai is the author’s second novel; and the third time I am reading him. I happened to read Desai for the first time while reading a review copy of Killing Ashish Karve, which was his debut work. And it was impressive. Tightly written. When I started using Kindle, I came across his second work on a monthly deal and the author’s name was enough to click Buy Now.

Enjoyable! However, I should mention that, being from a suspense genre, the book is not gripping enough to keep you biting your nails. The plot is pretty much predictable and sequence is very bollywoodish :) Yet a hearty and a light read. Recommended for 'Not So Serious' readers.
