Only the good die young is a sequel of the book You never know. The story begins with Anuradha who has left C&M and joined Grassroots now. Dhruv comes back to her life unexpectedly and they decide to remain friends despite both having feelings for each other.
On the other had Sid, her ex and abusive boyfriend, whom she believed to be dead is back for revenge. He wants to destroy her life and make it a hell. He is now able to change his face to anyone and that makes Anuradha's world more dangerous.
The story begins with very intense event and also moves at a fast and gripping pace. It was unputdownable and I have actually finished it in ine sitting. This is a kind of a thriller where we know who the culprit is and we are worried about what he will do next. The book also has other shady characters whose motives keep the readers at edge. The character development was good especially the side characters were paid attention.
One thing though I will say is some of the actions by Sid felt unrealistic to me and there were some other areas that needed clarifications which I can't mention here because it will become a spoiler.
If you wish to read an engaging thriller then try this book for sure. No difficult language or plot complexity.

My 2 Cents:💢
Only the good die young is a sequel to You never know. Which has the first part of the story. it will be easy to understand if you read the first book first then go with the second one. It is a thriller with a fitting end in the second part. The narration is quite good. There are few unwanted and unnecessary abusive words and sexual content which i don't like. Writing style is gripping and dragging the readers to complete the book with an urge. The cover of the book is very attractive. So I would recommend this read to the thriller genre readers.
Akash Verma has ripped open the dark reality of humans and pointed out the level of brutality a person can achieve when he is under a revenge mission. OGPDY is an intense thriller novel with many layers being ventured and executed by the author successfully. At times the prevailing winning of dark becomes too much to intake but with the efficient writing, Akash Verma has been able to make the readers glued to the story conveniently. The writing and the language are pretty easy and people starting with this genre can go for the book if they will.
My only complaint with the story will be the characters. Though Anuradha and Dhruv are shown to be madly in love with each other, my heart was not able to root for them. Anuradha’s character was strong as an individual but her chemistry with Dhruv was not appealing to me. Dhruv’s juggling between loyalty and love made his character very unlikable for my taste.
OGPDY is a testimony of twisted human minds and their perverted and sadistic approach to revenge and pleasure. One shall definitely read the book for Verma’s layered writing and storytelling. I hope to see more of his works in this area as the Indian thriller genre will be enriched with his writing.
Apart from the explicit part, it tells the tale of an Ex, who is alive only to torture. The story revolves around a female protagonist Anuradha who has an Ex named Sid. She keeps on running from her past until the past starts to haunt her. The plot is gripping but I would recommend reading the first part of the book to get into the plot.
The language used is simple and lucid. The narration is clear. It is an amazing book for all the lovers of mystery and thriller. The cover of the book is made of vibrant colors which looks very beautiful as well as strange. The book title was enough to keep the mystery on. A thriller which keeps us on our toes.
