When the deaf and dumb couple talk to Riya in her dreams four decades after their murder, can she solve the crime before she becomes the next victim?
The BookViral Review:
A clever and intriguing plot with main characters who are both original and appealing The Buried Dream proves an interesting debut for Shrimant who is particularly adept at setting the tone for his characters and the challenges they find themselves facing.
There is certainly plenty of suspense with Riya and Sagar proving vividly realized personalities who are complex but still highly relatable. In the main this comes from how they perceive one another and here Shrimant delivers multiple cliffhanger moments which are sure to keep his readers on tenterhooks as he makes a genuine connection between them.
With a measured, insightful and polarizing narrative we are taken to the crux of the shared dreams Riya and Sagar have been experiencing. We feel their angst and identify with their guilt as their feelings for each other grow and in turn we feel compelled to turn another page.
Perhaps more importantly Shrimant respects the quirks of his characters rather than exaggerating them and this brings a certain emotional resonance which is often missing in the paranormal genre. We can imagine ourselves alongside them as momentum gathers, we feel the rising tension as the stakes grow ever higher and we fear for them when the secrets of the dead places them in mortal danger!
An enjoyable read that deserves a place on your bookshelf The Buried Dream is certainly recommended.
