#BookReview :: Catch Me? No You Can't! by Amit Nangia

Raja Tiwari is freshly out of jail and not for stealing hearts and killing with his looks. Audacious, handsome and dangerously charming, he is looking for a new job when he meets the suave and beautiful Silky Sinha. To add the cherry on the cake, she takes him home.
Why would a hot girl take an ex-convict, a stranger home?
Did she want something from him? Did she want him?
Wouldn't the story be too simple that way? Enter ex-cop Thakur, unruly and wild. He has a job for Tiwari which would either make him filthy rich or land him behind bars again. His plan leads to a dramatic verdict, unforeseen consequences and a web of lies and deception.
Tiwari always has an angle to everything, but he would need something more to be a step ahead in this game - assuming his own allies don't end up killing him before the police get the chance.
The question is: How far is he willing to go?

Raja Tiwari is fresh out of jail and before he knows he comes across Silky Sinha. After rescuing her from a tight spot, Raja follows Silky to her home where eventually meets Thakur, an ex-cop. Things start to build up as Thakur makes a proposal that could make or break Raja’s life. If everything goes well, Raja could lead a comfortable life while he figures out what’s next. But if things do not work out as planned, then that could lead to another stint in jail for Raja. Will he take up the proposal? And should he trust his new friends?

This is a story told in 100 odd pages. So, the character build up is done right from the first page. In every small action of Raja, there is a glimpse of the person he really is. And it is pretty easy to get up-close and personal with him thanks to the one-two liners that he keeps saying in his mind. And though we are never told things from Thakur’s point of view, his intentions and character is pretty clear from the very beginning. However, Silky Sinha is one character who is difficult to get a read on. It is impossible to be sure about which side she is playing on till the very end. There is an air of mystery around her. 

The storyline is pretty straightforward, or so it seems at the beginning. The action picks up right in the first few pages, setting the pace for the rest of the story. There is not a dull moment in the book what with the action, the plotting and seduction that fills its pages. Frankly, the love scenes could do with some work on. Otherwise, this was a perfect package. I loved the dialogues, the characters and the twist that comes in the end. I could predict only one half of the twist and so was pleasantly surprised by the ending.

A complete entertainer.
