The Mogul by Vish Dhamija

Storizen Magazine - - What's Inside - – by Swapna Peri

The story starts with the news of the mur­der of a cou­ple, where the mur­dered woman hap­pens to the ex-wife of the pro­tag­o­nist. Prem Bedi, the pro­tag­o­nist, a rich busi­ness­man is all set to fi­nal­ize a busi­ness deal in the coun­try of Korea and as he set to travel, the news of the mur­der comes to his no­tice. He with­out any hes­i­ta­tion vis­its the place of the mur­der and thereon lands him­self into a trap of false claim, that he killed the cou­ple.

The next se­quences of in­ter­ro­ga­tion, case fil­ing, court­room se­quences are found to be very in­ter­est­ing. The au­thor has man­aged great with am­ple ef­fort to main­tain the mys­tery and the sus­pense. What re­ally hap­pened? Who killed the cou­ple? Why was Prem be­ing framed? To know the an­swers, please read the book.

What I like:

1. The sto­ry­line 2. The nar­ra­tion in the first per­son

3. The court­room scenes 4. Many in­ter­est­ing twists and turns 5. The mys­tery through­out the story has sus­tained.

What I didn't like:

I could iden­tify a few words that are not re­ally a part of the ac­tual English Vo­cab­u­lary, but they have evolved dur­ing con­ver­sa­tions among the peo­ple. If these words have not been in­cluded, it would have been much bet­ter.

Book Cover:

The cover is a beau­ti­ful im­age of a man see­ing the bird's eye view of the city from a win­dow. The au­thor's name and the ti­tle are em­bossed and it feels quite good when the reader ac­tu­ally feels it.

Book Ti­tle: The ti­tle 'The Mogul' is unique and in­ter­est­ing. Based on the au­thor's pre­vi­ous work, it's not very hard to guess that this book might be a po­lit­i­cal thriller.

Lan­guage and Gram­mar:

Fine lan­guage and good gram­mar are sued, with few glitches.


Ev­ery char­ac­ter in the story seemed to be pretty in­ter­est­ing and gave a feel­ing like watch­ing a vis­ual -fic­tion thriller.


The beau­ti­ful nar­ra­tion in the first per­son is a def­i­nite hook point where the reader doesn't lose in­ter­est in read­ing the story.

My Ver­dict:

thrilling read from our own John Gr­isham!

Fi­nal Rat­ing: 3/5 Swapna worked as SAP Con­sul­tant for 10 years in Ma­jor IT com­pa­nies. Read­ing has al­ways been her pas­sion and oc­ca­sional paint­ing her hobby. She de­cided to quit her job, look af­ter the fam­ily and pur­sue her hobby of read­ing and paint­ing in a larger way. Thus, her big leap into book re­view­ing has paved a way and has been suc­cess­ful to date. Read­ing chal­lenges in­ter­est her a lot and vis­it­ing book fairs is her fa­vorite thing. She be­lieves that there is no good back or bad book, but only books. Writ­ing un­bi­ased re­views is her strength and she is ap­pre­ci­ated by fel­low re­view­ers and read­ers for the same. An an­thol­ogy of mus­ings with her paint­ings is her pend­ing dream!
