Review: The Heist Artist

The Heist Artist by Vish Dhamija
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description :
Vagh Pratap Singh aka the Captain is a conman extraordinaire. From transporting illegal merchandise and stealing cars to breaking safes, he's done it all. But now, in his fortieth year, he's ready to retire. So when Udham Kumar, a crooked politician from Uttar Pradesh, commissions the Captain to track down and steal Poppy Flowers, a Vincent van Gogh's painting that has been smuggled into India after it went missing in a museum in Egypt in 2010, the Captain knows that he's found his last, and biggest case. But the painting is now in possession of a dangerous gangster, and the Captain is being followed by Udham Kumar's ruthless associates, greedy for both money and power. As the odds against him begin to stack up, the Captain realizes that his last heist might not be as easy as he'd imagined.


I was quite skeptical before beginning the book as most of the times heist books turn out to be predictable and then leaves no further fun reading ahead. Although, I'd say the cover doesn't grab your attention that much but this read isn't certainly the one you'd want to judge by its cover.

The blurb is simple and gripping which had my attention to the book in the first place. I haven't read any books by the author before but the claim of having many bestsellers before certainly had me assured that book would be interesting for most part.

The formatting was weird in the kindle version that I had but apart from that I didn't find any other concerns. The language was simple and fluid. The Narration was nice and the descriptions made things actually real enough to believe that this could've been a real incident. The story had a lot of twist and turns and the mild action scenes were perfectly drafted. I wish there was more active action in the book. But since the book was on the heist, it can be ignored if they didn't have a major action scene. Although I wished there was more details in the actual breaking in scenes.

The story had enough twists to had me into it till the last page. I simply loved the read and would surely recommend if you love reading such stories. It is a gripping read that would not let you rest until you finish it.
