Unlawful Justice is written by Vish Dhamija and published
by Harper Collins.
A good thriller should not have the predictability factor;
the author has tried to maintain the elusive aspect. The plot building is good,
though towards the end, plot slacken a bit. The author created a larger than life
villain, so when the plot demanded revenge, the expectations from the villain were
high. But somehow they were not met properly. Still, I can safely say, it
is a well written novel, which is a good read. The English is crisp, the plot
is not too complex. The characters are not heavily layered, they are simple to understand.
The book will give you peep, in the
world of Indian judiciary.
Vansh and Priti Diwan were lawyers, and had a peaceful
family life. They had a caretaker, who used to take care of the Diwan
household, comprising of their daughter and caretaker’s daughter baby. This
serenity was shattered by Maheep Singh, who raped Baby brutally. Maheep Singh is son of Maninder Singh, the key
client, handled by Vansh Diwan firm. Vansh was totally unaware of the fact, that
the storm, will rip apart his household, and will challenge all his beliefs and
ethics. He is torn between a shot at justice for the girl and his most powerful client.
His wife Priti is devastated by her husband’s decision. She turns to Akash
Hingorani, famous criminal lawyer and an old friend of Preeti and Vansh for
help. The plot thickens from here, followed by a mysterious murder. For the
rest, it would be better to read the book.
The novel is a good read, the plot is gripping and is
definitely value for money.
