1) Girl in room 105:
Chetan Bhagat wrote the novel Girl in room 105. Keshav receives a text message from Zara on her birthday night, four years after they broke up. He rushes to room 105 of her hostel, only to see her strangled to death. He is a possible victim, and he sets out on a mission to identify the real killer. Did he track down the assailant? What is the reason for this? Why did he go to such lengths to find the murderer? What happened to the girl in room 105?
2) One Arranged Murder:
The story revolves around two closest friends who own and operate a detective firm. Despite their differences, Keshav and Saurabh live together, work together, and are close. Saurabh is about to marry Prerna, and despite the fact that it is an arranged marriage, they appear to be in love. She fasts for him on Karva Chauth, despite the fact that they are only engaged, and insists on meeting him on the terrace so she can eat. Unfortunately, when Saurabh arrives on the terrace, she is dead. He’s dead set on finding the killer, so he enlists Keshav’s help. There are many suspicions because Prerna resided in a large house in Delhi.
The writing style is straightforward, fluent, and understandable to a wide range of readers. His narrative will engross you, whether you are a seasoned reader or a newbie. The narrative is well-planned and performed, and I’m glad to admit that I didn’t figure out who the murderer was until later in the novel!
3) The Krishna Key:
Author Ashwin Sanghi prefers to create multi-dimensional characters who are based on history, mythology, politics, and religion. The emergence of a murderer who carries out his brutal and beautifully planned plots in the name of God is the first hint to a dangerous plot to uncover an ancient secret – Krishna’s valuable legacy to mankind – in The Krishna Key. The Krishna Key is a fast-paced book with a lot of theological, mythological, and historical content.
The thrilling threads of history and mythology in this book provide the thrill. This text is based on the concept that Lord Krishna was born in the Kaliyug period to save the world. This is a must-read for everyone who wants to test their views and learn more about our history and mythology. It’s as if you’re inside a time machine, going back and forth through time and giving you butterflies.
4) Arya’s Hunting Ground:
The major plot begins with the murder of Jeyanth, a well-known singer. He married Ananya, the daughter of Aadhi Kesavan, a well-known Tamil politician. Three more victims are found murdered in and near the singer’s home shortly after he is assassinated. For a long time, the police were in the dark until Arya took up the investigation. On the surface, it appears to be a case of theft, but as the story progresses, it becomes evident that additional people are involved, and their motivations change as well.
The story encompasses much more than a murder inquiry. The crime occurs in Chennai, but Arya frequently travels between Chennai and Puducherry in pursuit of offenders. It’s a fantastic book about crime investigation since, with one case, a slew of other cases resurfaces, revealing unexpected details about a variety of personalities.
