This review is in association with Blogchatter.

Evoked presented by Ravi Subramanian and written by Mansi Babbar is an impressive mystery novel that captures the reader's attention from the first page and keeps them engaged till the very end. The novel revolves around the mysterious deaths of two identical twins in the idyllic town of Lavasa, and the complex web of lies and deceit that the investigating inspector, Mohite, uncovers in his quest to solve the case.

As this is an investigative crime thriller, I'm not going to talk about the plot much as it will deteriorate the experience of actually reading the book.

The plot of the book is well-crafted, with plenty of twists and turns that keep the reader guessing. The pacing of the story is perfect, building up the tension gradually and maintaining it throughout the book. The book also provides a fascinating exploration of the theme of identity, particularly in the context of the twins. The contrast between Sevita and Sama highlights the complexities of identity and the ways in which our personalities are shaped by our experiences.

The characters in the book are well-developed and relatable. Each character has their own unique backstory, and the author takes care to ensure that each of them has their own distinct personality. The descriptions of the town and its inhabitants are vivid and evocative, transporting the reader into the world of Lavasa.

Overall, Evoked is a well-written and engaging mystery novel that is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys the genre. Mansi Babbar has done an excellent job of exploring the dark corners of the human mind and creating a world that is both intriguing and unsettling. It is a must-read for anyone looking for a thought-provoking and engaging mystery novel.

I bought the book, and read it almost immediately. It is a crime thriller and kept me glued to it till the last page. The writing style was engaging and reminded me of Sydney Sheldon, who is a master of this genre. Packed into a shortz book, it meets the promise made under the foreword by Ravi Subramanian who has the moral right to claim its authorship. The author Mansi Babbar came up with a good narrative and my congratulations.


Your reviews always induce one to make a buying decision. Ravi Subramanian is one of my favorite authors and I read almost all his books. I understand from the book cover that he presented this book , whereas Mansi Babbar was the author. When I visited the Amazon page , Ravi Subramanian was shown as the author. Anway, I expect the book will have the 'touch' of him and hope to enjoy reading the same.
