Who killed Mark Collin? Who the hell killed Miguel? Who is the real mother of Jasper? Is Sara really cheating on Jasper? Can Asher take out his brother Jasper out of the imprisonment? Why is Larry behaving so insane? Will the life be smooth again for the Thomas family? Will the deadliest secret ever come out? And so many questions like these will keep you inquisitive once you start reading the book by Arjun Kacper – Deadliest Secret of Truth, a thriller fiction which seems like a classic American crime drama…
When I received the book to review from my colleague at Ashvamegh, I was intrigued to see the cover which was partially shadowed by two silhouettes… It tells the story, doesn’t it? The fiction by Arjun Kacper captures the seamy side of our public life very well. There is deceit; there is crime; there is horror; there is the fear of past; there is secret and there is a lot of passion in this novel!
The mischievous motifs of the inspector Rob and the pure love of Sara keep the things in balance. The secret with which Miguel dies by the hands of some ‘strange entity’ keeps the novel in pace. Side by side, the love stories of Asher and Jasper with Cassandra and Sara respectively give the novel a passionate impetus which offers something interesting for the readers of young age.
With 63 chapters, the novel runs around 220 pages but it does not let the reader feel done at any instance. The scenes flash like a Hollywood movie and the set up of the novel takes us to the USA. Arjun has dealt with a rather complex plot very well as for a debutant. He has managed his best and did not let the narrative deviate from the major theme – secret. There is a secret which becomes the central driving force of the novel and all the major characters, including the two main protagonists Jasper and Asher, are rushing to unfold.
All the major and minor characters have played their part beautifully in the novel. The introduction of Larry and Melissa takes place at a very ample time in the narrative. The newly elevated CEO Jasper has to step down for Larry which is a turning point in the novel and eventually that leads to the catastrophe which brings Jasper behind the bars… then comes the part that his beloved Sara has to play by sleeping with the enemy to try to unfold this Deadliest Secret of Truth…
What happens and when it happens are the things which will keep the readers interested and I don’t want to spoil the pleasure by telling here who is the murderer. Read the novel yourself to find out more about this thriller which will surely keep you enchanted until it ends. There are some intimate scenes between Sara and Jasper which become inevitable for the modern fiction. Overall, Deadliest Secret of Truth is an enjoyable work by the author. Any reader who is interested in reading crime and thriller fiction must go through the book.
