Aradhaya Patil had just finished her engineering and was back in her home town. She had thinks she had everything that she could wish for. A loving family, a boyfriend who was head over heels in love with her and a bright future.
But there are somethings that she doesn't know about. There seems to be something amiss between her father and mother.
And ever since she's back she's been having this recurrent nightmare involving a birdiware statue. She know there is some secret behind this nightmare and she has an inkling that if the secret is out then it's going to shatter all her family.

Curse of the Red soil is the debut book of the author Durgesh Shastri and i think he has done a good job. It's was a page turner that kept me hooked till the end.The characters of the book were believable and were realistic.
There was only one thing that i didn't like about it though. There are parts in book that seem that the author has put just to advertise his sponsors. The characters keep rattling all the information about the history,buildings, and people behind the institutions that didn't seem natural and were off putting for me.
Apart from it the book was a good thriller that i enjoyed reading. I'll be looking for other works by him.
