Brutal is the first publication to come out of the Bloody Good Book and Westland stable which is being lead jointly by Niyati Patel and Rashmi Bansal. This is a unique venture in the sense that it gives new and upcoming writers the chance to live their dream of becoming a writer.

Writers are required to send in their manuscripts of which 3 chapters are published online and they are rated and reviewed by the readers as well as go through an editorial process. The best ones are selected to be published. So does this thriller work? Let’s check it out.

The blurb goes like this –

You are in real, real danger’ – a school teacher gets a creepy warning in his mailbox. Seven days later, he massacres eleven of his own students. Two months later, he is gunned down in broad daylight by an obscure militant outfit.

Book Review – Scammed: Confessions of a Confused Accountant

The blurb goes like this –

Life is miserable for Hitesh Shah despite his coveted job in a top accounting firm. Labeled a nerd by colleagues, ignored by women and rebuked by parents, Hitesh cannot resist when offered a lucrative job as the CEO of an offshoot of the failing automobile company, Supreme Motors. So what if the owner Venugopal Reddy, a sleazy businessman with political connections, actually wants Hitesh to fix the company to save his skin? Hitesh’s drive and quest for success helps turn the Company’s fortunes around; he is seen a rising corporate star, he begins dating a model and is pampered by parents.

Championed as the poster boy of emerging India, Hitesh’s fairytale ends quickly. As his cursed luck would have it, he is soon on the run from the law – allegedly as the perpetrator of a financial scam and accused of defrauding thousands of investors! With his back against the wall, and growing public and media opinion against him, will Hitesh come out of the mess he finds himself in?
