Review: The Closed Case

Author: Amay Saxena. 
Genre: Mystery Thriller, Novella. 
Rating: 🍫🍫🍬

Hilda’s case was unfathomable. Mystery in itself. A case no one had control over. What one could do was – gape, act, and regret, or die.

Roy, a retired detective, discovers that his helper is abducted by a psychopath, who claims to be an admirer of his work. To save his helper, Detective Roy must travel to Mumbai, where he has some horrendous memories associated with his past, which he has been trying to shun. As Detective Roy arrives in Mumbai, he discovers that it is not just a kidnapping case, but this case is strongly connected to his dark past. A past – he never wish to revisit.
Created from one of the darkest secrets of the most ferocious periods in the world’s history, The Closed Case, is Detective Roy’s journey of unearthing the truth behind something instructable, darkling, and facinorous that might leave you mystified.

The cover is really basic and looks like a template cover. It's clear that the author did not really pay attention to the cover. 

The Closed Case sounded really interesting when I read the synopsis, and though the storyline was pretty good, the execution wasn't. 

I think it could've been a pretty great read if the author had splurged a bit and gotten a professional editor to look over the manuscript before publishing. 

I really liked the storyline, but it was a pain to read redundant sentences, some of which were also riddled with grammatical errors. 

So yeah, I'd give the author a thumbs up for the effort, but also advise him to work on the editing a bit more.
