Apart from the main character, the male protagonist Vijay who is the detective, in this case, there are other characters who may be coined as important though guest. Each of these characters is given ample scope and space in the story—for example, Inspector Madhukar Dalvi’s character.
How good is the narration?
The story is presented in the third person narrative and gives the reader a considerable scope to travel along with every character. When it comes to reading a crime-fiction, the narrative plays an important role. I like the third-person narrative in which a murder mystery books.

With generous amounts of mystery in the plot and exciting story-telling, this book – ‘Right Under Your Nose‘ by R.Giridharan has some attractive writing. With most of the language being conversational and straightforward, the story flows smoothly. Giridharan’s writing and story-telling skills are much appreciated.
How entertaining is the book?
Mystery fiction is often a story that involves a murder, an identity of a murderer, a single or bunch of victims, and a scene. Here, in this book by author Giridharan, the story’s setting and set-up are impeccably perfect as the story starts with a murder and an accident. The central character, Vijay, who is a professional detective, deals with the case. The murder of the scientist and the woman’s death by accident are aligned, giving a thought if both deaths are inter-related. When there are a detective and a crime, the result would be a great roller-coaster ride of twists and turns, and finally, the case gets solved. If the case is solved unexpectedly or the story’s climax is a step higher in the thrill element, the book becomes a great entertainer.
