Two indian girls is the first installment in the Kanke killings trilogy. Kanke is a colony in Ranchi, Bihar.
The story revolves around the mysterious suicide of Khushbu, who had married Ajit less than a month ago. As is usually the case, the prime suspects here are the husband and his family. But inspector Rajiv Kumar has some other perspective regarding this case and doesn't let go of it easily without further investigation. He is involved with Khusbu's bestfriend, Amrita who relentlessly asks him to perceive the case from a different angle.
Ajit's uncle, his father's elder brother is an IAS officer and his senior is Ghanshyam Tewari in the services. Rajiv meets Ravi, the uncle first and senses some sort of foul play there. He confides everything he finds to Amrita and she carries on her own personal search to decipher the case. But what appears to them is just the tip of the iceberg! This case is as much related to Amrita as it is to Khusbu for more than one reason.
Did Khushbu commit suicide of her own accord or someone forced her to do so? Read to know!
This book had me hooked right from page one. It talked about the changing political scenario of Bihar in 2014, the state of a girl's thoughts when she is newly betrothed, the giddiness that comes with too much power and a lot more!
It was barely a month after her marriage to Ajit that Khushbu was found dead. At first look it appeared to be suicide, that she had taken her own life. But why would a happily married woman who had just begun a new phase of her life succumb to suicide. Something fishy was going on here, and Inspector Rajiv Kumar, the officer assigned to this peculiar case, was determined to find out the hidden reasons and motives. Now what makes this murder case investigation different is that instead of keeping the victim's husband or in-laws as the prime suspects, Inspector Kumar eyes this case from another perspective, and the suspect from his end of the enquiry is Amrita.
The prose is fluid and the plot, fast paced. You might like investigating this murder case on a rainy day!

The story rotates around the suicide of Khushbu, who had married Ajit not exactly a month prior. the superb suspects here are her husband and his family. Ajit's uncle is an IAS officer and his senior is Ghanshyam Tewari in the administrations. Rajiv meets Ravi, the uncle first, and faculties some kind of injustice there.
He trusts all that he finds in Amrita and she carries on her very own hunt to unravel the case. Yet, what appears to them is only a hint of something larger. This case is as much identified with Amrita all things considered to Khusbu for more than one explanation.
There are a few characters yet each character improvement has been introduced well. Again each character has been given an adequate extension to add to the story.
Language is very simple to understand.
This definitely an outstanding thriller. From the start till the end, the book kept me hooked. The style of portraying the entire novel was indeed nice, and the suspense created also gives a spine-chilling feeling to the readers. If you are look forward to reading something fast-paced and thriller then I highly recommend this book.

The book cover, I really like - different and yet familiar, and smacks of authenticity and exotic-ness. The way the characters were described in short sentences especially Amrita and Khushbu - "She was not ethereal. She was not beautiful. She was not pretty. She was not alluring......" I liked that - it gave it a staccato feeling and drove it home for me.
So why 3 stars only? I found the writing style in the main rather stilted and I did not enjoy the fact that it was a bit heavy on the politics. Although I really wanted to like the novel and be intrigued by it, it did not really grab my attention. As I did not finish the book, I may be doing the novel an injustice - who knows perhaps at the last page, I might have been wow-ed and totally sold but then again perhaps not.
However, I think it is a brave new venture for this promising young author. Who knows, he may surprise me with the pulitzer next time round.
All this wrapped around the questionable suicide of a happy, young bride. Suicide or Murder?
