Review: Crime Patrol: The Most Thrilling Stories

Crime Patrol: The Most Thrilling Stories Crime Patrol: The Most Thrilling Stories by Annup Sonii and Oswald Pereira
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Criminals should be punished, not fed pastries.”
― Lemony Snicket, The Blank Book

Crime never pays. Or does it? This is most intriguing and gruesome aspect of humanity. Why does people turn to crime? Is it greed, poverty, lust, laziness, sloth or pure evil? This book tries to throw light on these through some real-life crime stories.

Anup Soni is a veteran actor and host of popular serial “Crime Patrol” on Sony network. Oswald Pereira is a seasoned journalist and author. These two collaborated to bring to readers some real time crimes.

These are eight criminal stories in all. The reasons for committing the crime are varied but the end is similar. In the end they were caught and imprisoned. The stories are told in a rapid flowing way so that you don’t have time to feel bogged down or get bored.

In some stories police investigation is shown which is liked. Some stories are told in first person like “Skeleton in the school” and no investigation was there, which I found disappointing.

In all a very engrossing book and a class apart from romantic trash Indian authors write. 4/5 stars.
