An IIM alumni, Ravi Subramanian is back with his yet another best selling banking chronicle "The Bankster". In this thriller, Ravi used his customary approach of seemingly unrelated multiple threads of contexts converging into a single climax. This initially makes his followers feel a bit bored. But, for new readers the book starts and ends with a bang.
One thing that makes this book stand in the stands of best sellers is its second phase with investigation that forces its readers dramatically increase their eye span. Ravi had obviously made a very sound background work for weaving the story involving many intricate subjects that surprise the reader and make the book a perfect thriller. The story is very simple with its english and much elaborated with its contexts.
Skiing over the surface of the story, it is a perfect framework of elements like purpose driven protests, libidinous officials, money laundering, illegal arms dealings, business with blood diamonds, mysterious murders etc., Above all, it is about messing up with a key aspect that holds many tangible and intangible things "Trust". The trust a bank's management puts into its employees and the trust a social worker has in his partner.
See how the trust is restored through the azure binded "The Bankster" penned by the John Grisham of banking.
