Remember Death by Ankush Saikia: Book Review

I had reviewed Ankush Saikia's Dead Meat a while back. This review is about the sequel (in some sense) to that book. The main character is retained, Arjun Arora, a detective operating on his own (with help from many people on the side) with a troubled past, handling many relationships and juggling his cases with what comes across as very human. Unlike, the traditional detective novels where the detective gets a flash of an insight with some very obscure connection to the case, Arora has to struggle most of the time with his leads. But eventually everything ties up well with his case. The credit for writing a very believable detective novel goes to Ankush, and I wish to see more of Arora from the writer.
