MY REVIEW: I was kindly provided with a copy of this book by the author Neelabh Pratap Singh.
I had previously reviewed Neelabh’s first novel, “The Resurrection of Evil”, a mythological thriller. So my first thought on starting with “Pi Agency” was that this story was completely different.
Rashmi Purohit is a tough, no-nonsense woman who aspired to join the CBI but couldn’t do so. She is running her own detective agency, i.e. Pi Agency from the basement of her house with her two assistants, Akshay and Diksha.
Pi Agency is hired by Brajesh Arya, a rich businessman, to investigate a drugs cartel that has succeeded in getting Brajesh Arya’s son addicted to drugs.
An investigation is launched which turns out to be full of twists and turns with danger thrown in. The investigation involves the use of technology, going undercover, using a honey trap and also the danger of physical violence.
Rashmi Purohit comes across as a fine character as a dedicated and skilled investigator. The characters of her two assistants, Akshay and Diksha are also very nicely etched.
Does the Pi Agency succeed in tracking down the main culprit behind the drugs operation? That of course is the focal point of the story.
Pi Agency is an extremely enjoyable suspense thriller and I recommend it to readers. I will be definitely looking to reading another story about the next adventure of the Pi Agency!
