Author: Sourabh Mukherjee
The title of the book ‘ The Sinners ‘ is intense and mystical. I find the title very invigorating as always. As a reader, I cannot resist praising Author Sourabh for his interest in picking up catchy titles.
The cover image of the book is a woman in her party dress with a cocktail or a wineglass in hand. The skyscrapers in the overlay of the image suggest the story is set up in a big city. Looking at the woman’s attire it can also be decided that it is a story within the corporate field.
About the author:
Sourabh Mukherjee is the author of three psychological thriller novels – ‘The Sinners’, ‘The Colours of Passion’ and ‘In the Shadows of Death’. He has also written three collections of short stories – ‘Romance Shorts’, a collection of dark-romance short stories; ‘Beyond 22 Yards’ on stories of Love and Crime from the world of cricket; ‘It’s All About Love’, a collection of 7 stories on romance and family ties titled ‘The Gift’, ‘The Cookery Show and a Love Story’, ‘A Special Day’, ‘Masks’, ‘An Autumn Turmoil’, ‘The Hunt’, and ‘The Death Wish’. Sourabh has also co-authored ‘Big Data Simplified’ published by Pearson, the largest educational services company in the world.
About the book:
The Sinners is a fast-paced thriller that weaves together elements of corporate warfare and personal vendetta. This is a whodunit about primitive, caveman instincts of those creating futuristic technology, and the complicated dynamics of relationships in the modern urban society.
A decadent womanizer drunk on power, a wife battling her demons to hold the family together, a jilted lover who swears revenge, the best-friend-turned-foe in the corporate jungle, a seductive temptress whose charms none can escape, a ruthless business rival, the shadow of a sinful past.
Often in the pursuit of quick success, people often take steps that may prove to be fatal or beneficial. If it is beneficial, all will be happy. But, unfortunately, if it proves to be fatal then comes the question of the blame game, morale check, and realization.
The initial pages of the story talk about Vikram Oberoi’s death. This is the point where an amazing story starts. In the inquiry, it is brought to the notice that Vivek is a man of immorals that are absolutely unforgiving and damaging. He is a womanizer and man of improper ways of bossing. One such encounter with his reportee Sonal proves to be ever mangling.
With his impure intentions, the company starts getting into losing projects and clients. Unaware of the happenings he continues tarrying in his own fantasy world. When he realizes his company lost a great number of deals he starts investigating and comes to know that there has been a heavy leakage of the company’s exclusive information. Shocked by the insider trading Vivek’s thoughts go awry. What happens further is the story. The author’s story of molding the story as per a character’s perspective stands highlight. Though the plot is not so unique it is all about the narration.
What I like:
1. The awesome plot which is so bling and scintillating.
2. The real struggles of an employee and employer who get into deep waters for the lustful actions
3. The matured content in the story is absolutely alluring
4. As always the author pleases his readers with those tinkling sparks of romance in his own style.
5. The pace with which the story runs is worth appreciating.
6. There is no good or evil human but it’s just humane things which make a change is very clearly explained with the characters in the story.
7. No one is the hero as well the villain. It is all situational and from different perspectives, the conclusion comes from.
8. The ugly truths that exist in corporate offices are described well
What I didn’t like:
The story ended with a low note. As a fan of the author’s writing, I wanted to read more of it!
Unique and perfect characterization is observed in the story. It is difficult to come to a conclusion about the virtue of each character. Such is the wonderful writing.
A clear and vivid narration is found in the story though there are many characters. Nowhere the readers will be confused. The narration makes the readers run through a turbine of twists and turns with a steamy story.
Language & Grammar:
Colloquial language is found in the story. It makes the book a fast read.
My Final Verdict:
Saucy, racy, steamy and thought-provoking game of morals and values.
Book Title: 3/5
Book Cover: 3/5
Language & Grammar: 3/5
Final Rating: 3/5
1. To begin, the book started off with a suicide. Now that sounds pretty sadist when I say it like that but let's be honest here, shall we? Which crime fiction lover isn't a sadist anyway? I mean, we practically get the thrill out of seeing people die!
2. Now this wasn't just a suicide. It was the suicide of an important person—Vikram Oberoi. He was a man that helped build one of the most important tech companies (NexGen) to a huge height. What transpired that led him to his suicide? This is what the reader wants to find out as one progresses forward.
3. This brings me to my third point. Now the story runs in flashbacks. To be honest, that's my best kind of series! I love how the reader gets pulled into a story because of a murder and then is taken some months back to a point where nothing happened, all the while knowing that there's going to be a death or that a so-and-so person will die.
4. The writing style of the author was also pretty good. The book was written in third person narrative that ensured the reader to see and know things they wouldn't have known had it been in a first person narrative. The language was simple. Overall, the entire thing kept me going.
Despite that, however, there were some things that I didn't like. Things, say, how even though the book was in a third person narrative, and we saw the POV of the person who was the major reason behind the suicide ((view spoiler)) quite a lot, we weren't informed of anything that related to the climax. I get that the author wanted it all to be a surprise but it felt like it was too much of a surprise to even be believable. It's like you're just throwing this fact at the reader right at the end to justify the mystery or to make the reader feel that the person they thought to be the culprit wasn't; it was actually someone else. Someone completely insusceptible. And to be honest, it was that sense of not suspecting the culprit that makes me say this: it was out of character. There were no signs in the past. It didn't make sense. It shouldn't have been done. Not to forget that entire strange Manvi Oberoi arc? Nope, felt weird right to its core. If she was such a good and caring person then how could she let such a thing happen to Rishi? Didn't make sense. Felt too forced. Annoyed me. Made me take away the fifth star.
The other thing that helped me take away that fifth star was how women were too much "love-stricken" in the story. They were objectified, if not literally then through the narration. It was as if none of them had any holding of their own without Vikram and frankly, that did NOT bode well with me. I get that most of the times things were said from Vikram's POV, an alleged womanizer but hey! You also used third person narrative, didn't you? You couldn't have improved upon it!
