Book Review: The Third Squad By V. Sanjay Kumar

Posted on: July 27, 2017

“The Third Squad” by V. Sanjay Kumar is an Indian thriller. I was surprised to find that the author runs an art gallery and writes regularly about art. Such a profile didn’t fit with a thriller-writer tag. So I decided to find out what kind of thrill an art-writer can create.

First of all, this is a racy novel. You can read it wherever you are and finish it pretty fast. But, you can enjoy it a lot more if you read it at a lesser pace. The author paints a great picture of Mumbai and each character’s emotions are presented in the correct light, without affecting the demands of the story.

Karan, the hero, is a shooter. He belongs to a secret squad which handles encounter killings. He is used to following instructions without asking questions, but at some point, he is forced to think about what he has been doing all these days. As we can expect, this won’t be interesting to his bosses and the novel revolves around this conflict.

Recommended for all fiction lovers and thriller fans.
