Synopsis

Simpson Bradley, an executive an audit firm is murdered one Wednesday in NYC. Cold blood style.

A week later, Keegan Burns, an out of work actor with a busted knee, is in a hospital, awaiting his discharge documents. He is reading about Bradley's murder in a newspaper. But that is not the only thing that ties him to it. Ruby, his nurse whom he has started to fancy, knows the killer.

Ruby's demeanour tells Keegan that something is amiss. On asking, she tells him about a friend named Asia (the killer's wife) being in trouble. Keegan is concerned about Ruby so he accompanies her when she meets Asia that evening.

As the events in the aftermath of the meeting transpire, Keegan Burns’ life is turned upside down as he becomes a key element to the Lotus Company- one of the largest crime syndicates in the world, with a plan which pushes the economy into jeopardy.

First, Asia is murdered. Then Duncan, her husband, who is languishing in a prison cell, is found with his throat slit on the same night. An unknown assailant nearly kills Ruby. Keegan is followed by unknown and dangerous people and his sister is kidnapped the following morning.

Why was Simpson Bradley murdered? What trouble was Asia in? Why has Keegan's sister been kidnapped? Will he able to save her? What has caused the sudden bloodbath?

With the help of a friend and rugged NYPD cop- Bruce, an attractive nurse- Ruby, a trusted Government source- Emma Hazelwood and his knee injury as compatriots, Keegan ventures to decrypt the fraudulent activities of the Lotus Company.

‘I am flying this,’ Keegan said.

Hazelwood looked at him, her eyebrows raised. ‘You cannot. Remember your knee is busted?’

‘The doctors said no cars, not no aircrafts.’

I am not a great writer, not even a published author. Please bear that in mind when you read my notes.

My review:
Good book... a few steps from being bloody good book... It has grabbed my attention for sure, but not my entire imagination.

My likes:
1. Character Development: Able to visualize the characters very well.
2. Pace: Very smooth. Pleasure reading. Good use of language, no unnecessary jerks.

The character of Simpson itself is intriguing and nicely plotted. Would definitely like to see this publishing.

I was hooked with "Simpson Bradley died because he knew things". What a way to start a story!! Then I was absolutely indulged in after- "Eight minutes before Simpson was going to die, the framed cityscape flirted with the shy golden sun rays". That was one of the best writings that I have ever read. The first chapter was spectacular with an ending that made me actually gasp - Holy!!
But then, the remaining chapters couldn't carry the pace or tone. I am sure that as we dwell further into the book, it would get more and more interesting. The manuscript requires editing, but that's understandable and it gets overshadowed by the awesomeness of the story! Great job! Please try to keep the same pace of the first chapter throughout!

If I were a publisher, at this point I would have asked for complete manuscript. I liked the story, the characters and the style. I hope to see it in prints. All the best.

At long last here is an author that has picked up something other than an Indian mytho or love sick thirty year old. Everything is just right with this book. The chapters are a perfect length - just good enough for quick reading in this fast paced life.
The story line is riveting. I actually kept hitting the arrow key, as I lost track that all three chapters had been exhausted.
Really, an awesome job.

The plot looks interesting enough and the chapters are paced well. Language needs more polishing and the few grammatical errors need to be corrected. Would certainly like to read more
