Book Review – Murder in Paharganj

Title: Murder In Paharganj
Author: Kulpreet Yadav
Length: 278 pages

This is my first murder mystery by an Indian author. “Murder in Paharganj” by Kulpreet Yadav sent a chill down my spine.

It is about a murder investigation of women who was murdered in a Hotel in Paharganj. Vicks Menon, a man who has lost his job recently, reaches the crime scene before the police and starts his own investigation. The search for the murderer took him to Udaipur then to Bangkok and finally to Sikkim. 

I liked and thoroughly enjoyed the way how Author Mr. Kulpreet Yadav included various international affairs. Such as the clash of Israel and Iran.

Although it is a crime thriller, it didn’t fail to express and value emotions. The pain of a father of not meeting his daughter, the guilt of not delivering the letter at right time, the impatience while your love is at the hands of death – the author succeeded in injecting emotions into words.

It is a fast paced and suspense filled book. The language of the book is equally catchy and lucid. The book is a good murder mystery with numerous numbers of surprise and definitely a page turner but with not so eye-boggling sequences.  

What I like:


1. The narration of the story is brilliant
2. The presence of mind of protagonist’s while solving the mystery

Over all, I enjoyed the book and it was worth reading.

Keep writing and best wishes to author.

My Over all Rating – 4.5/5
