My review :
Here, I can’t reveal much secrets about the secret of this book. But I must tell you, this story is very intriguing and we’ll described. The story has many twists and turns. At first I thought it is murder mystery but I was wrong, there are many things connected with main storyline which makes it more and more interesting and intriguing.
Characters are crafted really well. And I’m impressed with the characters : Shoumik haldar, an intelligence bureau officer for his sharp mind and Ishan for his history knowledge. It is very interesting to read about Gods and Goddesses. very detailed description I must say.
Narrative style is great. Every chapter is with meaningful name.
The tenth riddle, as name suggests, a wonderful mystery and suspence book. This one can be adapted into movie. I would like to recommend to all book readers to read this one.
