MY REVIEW: I was kindly provided with a copy of this book by the author Abir Mukherjee.
Ahi Chatterjee is a lovely young woman whose father is the Director General of the Kolkata Police. Ahi has started her own publishing house Ankur along with her best friend Samim.
Ahi is thrilled to receive a manuscript from her favourite author Devang Awasthi. The difficulty is that Devang Awasthi passed away two months before Ahi received the manuscript.
Once Ahi delves into the manuscript, she realises that it is an account of the writer’s life, right from his abusive childhood up to his adulthood and old age. Various crimes committed by Devang Awasthi are narrated in the manuscript.
Ahi realises that the contents of the manuscript are extremely explosive. Determined to publish it, Ahi heads to Delhi in order to get written permission from one of Devang Awasthi’s family members for publication.
In Delhi, Ahi encounters Maya, Devang’s second wife, Dhruv, his spoilt son and Hari, his faithful servant. However, she is soon seeped into a quicksand of crime and intrigue.
Ahi meets and falls in love with ACP Abhimanyu Rathore and also learns some horrific secrets about her own past. Will Ahi be able to find out who is sending her mysterious messages? Was Devang Awasthi’s death a murder or a suicide? The reader will have to read the story to find out.
Sin is the New Love is an extremely enjoyable suspense thriller and I recommend it to readers.
