COLD JUSTICE : Vish Dhamija. VISH is usually referred to as India’s John Grisham and at the rate he is progressing as an author, John Grisham might soon find himself referred to as the International Vish Dhamija.
Judge Shilpa Singh is on trail for Murder. And her ex boyfriend, ace advocate Akash Hingorani is called in to defend her. The most baffling thing is that nobody knows who the dead guy is. That’s all I can reveal here without spoilers. A thrilling ride follows inside and outside courtrooms. Remember that this is absolute fiction. No Indian court can ever finish a case as fast as it’s projected in this Novel.
I met Vish Dhamija years ago at the book launch of his second novel Bhendi Bazaar, courtesy my good ( and food ) friend Gunit Singla and I shall be forever indebted to her for introducing me to this wonderfully charming gentleman & author who I can today call a good friend. I have witnessed his journey and progress as an author and have read all his works and enjoyed most of his wonderful creations. Even the ones I have criticised, he has accepted with grace. I know I can be brutally honest to Vish and this time I honestly feel he has hit the bullseye - both with the story as well as the storytelling.
Most people might think that a legal thriller would be a bore with legal jargons and endless courtroom speils abound. Not in this case. Friendship, Romance, Suspense and also a small hint at a possible Vish Dhamija universe under construction, keeps the feverish pace intact. The interspersed humour in albeit a serious plot is terrific and lesser mortals might feel a truck has hit them out of nowhere in the fantastic finale.
COLD JUSTICE is a Cool Read. It is so good that I couldn’t believe I had polished off a good 279 pages at one sitting and still thought that the book got over too fast, until my clock said otherwise post midnight.
Don’t miss it.
