Ilove to read mur­der mys­ter­ies, so it was a de­light to know that one such promis­ing novel had hit the book stores re­cently. Race Course Road is a grip­ping novel about the reper­cus­sions of the as­sas­si­na­tion of a sit­ting prime min­is­ter of In­dia. As I started read­ing the book, I re­alised it was not just a mur­der mys­tery, it went beyond it. It brings to life the way our pol­i­tics and politi­cians work. Writ­ten dex­ter­ously by cel­e­brated colum­nist, Seema Goswami, it por­trays a vivid pic­ture of peo­ple and hap­pen­ings. Seema’s eye for de­tail and her ob­ser­vant na­ture is quite ev­i­dent in the way she has crafted liv­ing space and the char­ac­ters of her novel. Race Course Road has all the el­e­ments that can make a block­buster movie.
