Review of The Girl Behind The Glass

I picked up "The Girl Behind The Glass" by Sumit Pramanik because of its interesting cover. From the cover of the book and the name of the book I had really high hopes for this book and I am disappointed to say that I am not satisfied.


Book blurb
Just-married Neelabh and Shakshi arrive at Hotel Infinity, desperate to take cover from unknown pursuers. Next morning, a police inspector appears, enquiring about a car that hurtled off a bridge nearby. The girl who was in the vehicle is missing. 
As the eyes of the hotel-dwellers turn to each other, tragedy strikes again, this time much closer. 
Can Neelabh and Shakshi escape alive from Infinity? They soon learn that the devils inside them are no less dark than the devils outside. 
When secrets are peeled off like skin, people bleed.
The girl behind the glass is a thriller. The story of the book circles around a couple who had run from their city after committing a crime and are staying at a hotel in Kalikhal but this hotel have some twisted minds and so does the inspector in Kalikhal.

Now the second half of this book was really interesting and exciting but the first half was really boring. In my opinion, if the book 's first half is boring than chances are reader will leave the book midway, luckily for me, I didn't leave the book, and found another half quite compelling.

So lastly if you like a serial killer/murders mystery like "Race" and "Race 2" movies from Bollywood, then in spite of the boring first half you should read this, cause the second half will make it worth it.
