A useful death by Sriram Chellapilla #bookreview

Book description

Aspiring actress Priya is dead. It’s a suicide, and rumour has it that Anil, son of politician and former Telugu-movie superstar Mohan Krishna, drove her to it. Just another film-industry scandal? Or something bigger, much bigger?

Partha, hired by Mohan Krishna’s family to handle the crisis, thinks so. Why won’t such a powerful father defend his son, Partha wonders. Is there an intra-family war? Whose interests are playing out in the media and on social media? Is a political game afoot or is this all connected to Mohan Krishna’s own dubious past? And why are student unions getting involved?

Even as Partha and his associates, Seema and Harish, confront the ethics of being involved in a war with no heroes, they are drawn into a dangerous hunt. They must negotiate a tangled and vicious world to answer one question: a young woman is dead—to whom is her death useful?


If you want to get a thrill with unexpected twists then oh god this book is for you . From its first page you will be sucked in murder mystery .

It’s a story of suicide of upcoming actress linking it with politics, naxalisim. It’s a page Turner.

Character building is good . Title is very intriguing and new that’s what made me to read this book also blurb is very good.

So coming back to story priya’s suicide is not a simple suicide because she is related to big political person. Now that’s what made officers to think that it may not be suicide after all? Maybe murder? The way author expressed words is soo overwhelming, it’s like I was there when this investigation is going on.

This is first book by Indian author which is very good in mystery crime department. This book is 400+page but the great thing about it that you won’t even know when you finished it . This story is raw, overwhelming and after reading only one word came “wow” .
