Book Review

I’ve always had a fascination for crime thrillers, especially those featuring audacious law enforcement officers who stop at nothing to fulfill their duties. When the story revolves around such a character, it becomes utterly gripping.

Gayatri’s “Ela’s Unfinished Business” delves into the intricate realm of mental health issues intertwined with the complexities faced during ongoing investigations when a mentally ill patient becomes a prime suspect.

The narrative commences with a murder shattering the tranquility of Beri Shola, a once-quiet hill town, just a week before its annual flower show. In the heart of this crime, Rose Cottage, the flamboyant socialite Rose meets a gruesome end. Piu, a therapist new to Beri Shola, crosses paths with Ela, who confesses to being the murderer. Piu takes on the challenge of providing therapy to Ela. However, the plot thickens as the Commissioner of Police, Nachiketa, becomes suspicious and apprehends Ela based on mounting evidence.

Not to be overlooked is the intriguing presence of Oscar Swami, the reporter whose influence weaves an additional layer of intrigue into the narrative.
