Slaughter seems to be able to put just as much character development and story as she does in her full novels. The novella is a real page-turner that keeps you guessing with plenty of twist and … Continue reading Last Breath – Karin Slaughter

The book initially sets the scene of the technology development in India. The environment for the first couple of scenes … Continue reading The Celeritas Files – Ishan Majumdar
