 It is a small expression, but with an insightful depth. It means a search for something. For what and why? The greatest riddle of all is who is searching? Is it you, the eternal human crave or me? A longing to find the meaning of love, life and our existence.This short novella by Aniruddha Bose examines the answer to this conundrum.

Revolving round the affluent and upper middle class milieu of the urbanized society, the characters of this novel are all pawns in the game of life. Tossing up and down through their profits and losses, accomplishments and failures, love and hatred, desire and denial, they all pass through this enigma of life.


The truth they discover is life is nothing but a Venn Diagram an array of intersecting circles of relations, which includes its slices, but never its whole. We believe erroneously in relationships. We have an elusive image of our existence. Only a few chosen can comprehend that our life is nothing but a part of a greater nullity. The ultimate truth is that we live alone in our ‘home’ in solitude and die alone in it.

Aniruddha Bose’s thriller PURSUIT is something different from its genre. It has everything a thriller possess - multiple mysterious murders; beautiful sirens; handsome hunks; powerful men who can change the world; a staggering international conspiracy; highly complex international geo-economics and politics; the just dose of sex and so on. However, what makes it stand out in the crowd is its philosophy, the humanitarian angle and the universal message of peace and harmony.
There are twists in the tale that suddenly come down on the reader as bolts from the blue. That is expected in a top class thriller. What this book additionally possesses is the touch of universal melancholy that affects every thinking man and woman of every nationality.

Greedy international big shots conspire to conquer the world, and spill the blood of the innocent and guilty alike. Small-time characters are trapped in this web engulfed by the events beyond their control and comprehension. Amidst this chaos, there remains a blind Buddhist monk in an isolated monastery in the high Himalayas, who think about these chaotic currents. He sits in his isolated shrine, watching and analysing the events in the world, like the Nimrod.

The protagonist of the story, a highly intelligent young lady who is fortunate enough to get teachings from the contrasting two worlds, the modern western as well as the timeless philosophy of Hinduism and Buddhism, gets caught in the web and flows along the current.

Besides searching the reasons of the murders, she also searches for the reason of her existence, or rather the existence and meaning of the life as a whole. 
Does she reach her destination?

Aniruddha Bose narrates the story in his inimitable style, and draws the reader like a powerful magnet. The story culminates in a startling revelation of the truth. To find it, and to find your own truth, you have to read this unusual book.
“Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke are back with their fifth enthralling mystery in the New York Times bestselling Under Suspicion series; You Don’t Own Me finds television producer Laurie Moran stopping at nothing to solve the murder of a celebrity doctor—even as she finds herself in grave danger as a mysterious stalker plots his next move.



When we last saw Laurie Moran, she had recently become engaged to her show’s former host, Alex Buckley. Since then, the two have been happily planning a summer wedding and honeymoon, preparing for Alex’s confirmation to a federal judicial appointment, and searching for the perfect New York City home for their new life together.

But then Laurie is approached by Robert and Cynthia Bell, parents of Dr. Martin Bell, a famously charming and talented physician who was shot dead as he pulled into the driveway of his Greenwich Village carriage house five years ago. The Bells are sure that Martin’s disgraced and erratic wife, Kendra, carried out the murder. Determined to prove Kendra’s guilt and win custody over their grandchildren, they plead with Laurie to feature their son’s case on “Under Suspicion,” ensuring her that Kendra is willing to cooperate.

Kendra has lived under a blanket of suspicion since Martin’s death, with the tabloid media depicting her as a secretive, mentally unstable gold-digger. Laurie’s show is a chance for her to clear her name. But unbeknownst to the Bells, Kendra has already refused once before to go forward with a re-investigation of her husband’s murder, and her statements to the contrary only add to the appearance of guilt.

But once Laurie dives into the case, she learns that Martin wasn’t the picture-perfect husband, father, and doctor he appeared to be and was carrying secrets of his own. And what does the web of lies ensnaring the Bell family have to do with a dangerous stranger, who gazes at Laurie from afar and thinks, She is actually quite a lovely girl, I’m sure she’s going to be missed…?

You Don’t Own Me is the perfect, exhilarating follow up to the bestselling Every Breath You Take. The “Queen of Suspense” Mary Higgins Clark and her dazzling partner-in-crime Alafair Burke have devised another riveting page-turner.
