Bookish Indulgenges with b00k r3vi3ws
The blurb of the book really intrigued me. I had a couple of questions in my mind immediately after reading the blurb that I hoped reading the book would answer for me.

Sandy Raman stays as a paying guest with the Sawants, who come across as a normal Indian family. What was supposed to be an arrangement of convenience, turns into a dangerous situation for Sandy. The Sawants may not be the average family they pretend to be as Sandy wakes up to the secrets that she feels compelled to uncover. As sh

When we long for life without difficulties, we must remind ourselves that oaks grow strong in the harsh, contrary winds. If you think about it that way, it'll be easier to get by such situations. ~ Nish Amarnath, Victims for sale
This book is a crime thriller and I'm really loving this genre so much these days. It is based on real-life incident. It is a story about a girl Sandy Raman who goes to London to study in London School of Economics. She was formerly working in ABP news as reporter. She s

Before anything else, I LOVE THE COVER!

Now, for the actual review, this very illustrative story of the settings of London and every one of the intricate details of the crown’s domain emerges grandly. Its something that starts as a lamentable family unit issue then spirals into something greater, leaving passings, auto collisions and potential breaking news uncovered. While there is a lot of interest and dramatization worked in, the book tends to practical issues more.

This book will keep you snar

Sandy Raman is a nineteen-year-old journalist from Mumbai who does not hesitate to go where angels fear to tread. She lives as a paying guest with the Sawants, an Indian family after the death of her boyfriend, Saahil, in the Mumbai blasts. The appearance of Nirmal aka Nimmy, the son of the house, makes her feel she has an ally, even though she is a trifle startled by Nimmy’s sister, Asha, who first accosts her with a knife. Nimmy and Sandy grow closer, much to the disapproval of his family, but ...more

Victims for Sale by Nish Amarnath.
Do you like thrillers?
Do you love yourself some strong women characters?
Do you enjoy taking down evil people who should be shot at sight?
If you answered yes to all the above questions then give this book a read.
Every time I come across a fast paced plot I become a bit apprehensive about the handling and hope that I don't miss out on any interesting stuff. But this one was a treat.
And the twists, oh my my!!!
They were amazing.

Was too intrigued by the synopsis and cover so brought the book.A few pages into the story and i was utterly disappointed.
Crime thrillers are a genre that requires to be meticulously improvised along with a tight plot that keeps one hooked but I was disappointed by the way events rolled in the book. I kept on reading hoping the content would improve but felt sorry to reveal that the story went downhill with each page.It appeared to be a good plot that lost track somewhere.The heroine was bland a

Fast-paced conspiracy thriller

Nish Amaranth’s “Victims for Sale” is an engrossing, action-filled thriller about a young woman who is building her career in the broadcast media while attending business school in London who gets drawn into a conspiracy involving the exploitation of special needs children and teenagers. The story is consistently interesting and provides an illuminating look inside the world of a media company like the BBC.

Victims for Sale is a spine-chilling page turner, delving into murky and gory secrets of an unexplored sex racket inconspicuously nestled in the bustling city of London. Aside from the intricate details and convoluted plot twists that had my heart racing throughout, what I enjoyed the most was the poetic eloquence with which the story was told. The book gives you a glimpse of the travesties of contemporary investigative journalism while taking you on a rollercoaster ride through a bloodbath of n ...more

To be honest when I first read the book I was not too fond of the protagonist. Kinda came off as really weak if you ask me. But the development was quite good actually in the later chapters. I've always liked strong female MCs and this book had the kinda one I like. So kudos to miss Amarnath and hope she writes more books in the future
