‘ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG’ by AKASH VERMA

TITLE: ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG

AUTHOR: AKASH VERMA

GENRE: SUSPENSE/THRILLER

RATINGS: 4.7/5 ⭐


‘Only the good die young: & I’m not a saint’ – Isn’t the title Captivating? And the book cover is no less to that!

Spoiler Alert: So the ones who have not yet read the first part, this is going to be a spoiler. Go get the first part. It is worth a read for sure.

‘Running away from your past is the race that you will never win. Everything that you do comes back to you.’

Dhruv moved away from Anuradha’s life completely. That is what both thought but until their unexpected meeting in Mumbai. Anuradha has moved to Mumbai, working with a different team but still her heart longs for Dhruv. The very beginning of the novel brings a halt, twisting up the entire story. Sid is not dead. His face completely deformed, staying up feeding all his money to a greedy doctor who saved his life, getting a silicone mask to change his identity, following up every bit of Anuradha’s life, all he wants now is revenge. In between, a handsome man called Aman comes into her life, baffling us if he is a good one or not! Shortly, this book is a roller coaster ride of suspense, thriller and romance.

The entire story moves around a few characters and Dhruv, Anuradha and Aman’s character sketches are unforgettable and realistic; not to forget Sid and the Vengeance in his heart. The truth or dare scene was a turning point, and incidents after that are alarming.

Right from the beginning, suspense elements are scattered all around, pulling us to the next chapter. Gripping writing style though!

I loved the first part ‘You Never Know’ but I hadn’t expected a sequel for an ended story. Indeed, Sid’s comeback was a great shock. And the backstory was rather well sketched.
Following up with too many unexpected murders, the end almost made my heart skip a beat.

Recommended for readers above the age of 18, who are intrigued by suspense thrillers.
