Book Review: The Highway Mafia by Suchitra S Rao


“They are here and will probably reach your location in another 10 minutes,” answered a shaky voice on the phone.

“Good! Good! Keep track of them and don’t lose sight of them. See you in a bit,” replied Arjun. As soon he disconnected the call, his stern gaze broke into a devilish grin as he announced to his accomplices, “The hunt begins.”
Based on real events, The Highway Mafia is a political-crime fiction book that shows the transformation of a young businessman, who has an unexpected encounter with one of the most dreaded mafia groups in the country.
Find out what happens, when a secular youngster decides to choose the path of progressive activism to fight a multibillion-dollar worth organized crime of cattle trafficking that rely on political clout and black money to smuggle cattle.

Final Rating: 4/5

The cover looks beautiful and different. It justifies the title and the story in true sense. The Cows being taken on a Carriage on a Highway Road with mountains on both side.

The title is good for the story. It relates with the story very well. It’s quite apt.

The blurb of the book describes the core of the story, but fails to describe “How awesome the Book is”.

The story is based on Animal Trafficking, political interference when someone takes a stand against it.

The Characters are quite relatable. Such people can be seen in remote rural areas, those places which we see in News and other media where animal slaughter takes place as there is no law enforcement in practice.

The language of the book is balanced, it’s simple enough to connect with the readers while being written with some good vocabulary.

Looking forward to read more from the Authoress.
