About the Book:
A visit to an Indian festival by a photographers’ expedition turns into a riveting murder case.
A group of world-travelled photographers losses two of its members in unexplained circumstances. When the son of one of the victims decides to investigate on his own, he retrieves disturbing discoveries revealing unknown information about his late father. A bright police investigators and his talented team join the investigation in attempt to solve a mystery, in the context of photography commerce and international travel.
Travel the world with this realistically written tale while solving a gripping murder mystery.
Optimal Exposure is a memorable novel that skilfully weaves personal experience and rare writing talent to bring about an enthralling and pleasurable read. It is a gripping thriller with a rapidly unfolding plot and nuanced characters that will grab your attention from beginning to end.
A murder mystery where you get to see the photographic world through the words of the author. Quite a gripping which you won’t feel like putting down once you start reading the book. The starting of the book is good and in the beginning only the book hypnotizes the reader.
The story doesn’t have too many characters to confuse the reader and also all the characters are well developed. The story unfolds in a very interesting way. Almost all the members of the ‘Photographer’s Group’ are under suspicion especially Bar and Shuky. Also I liked the way the mystery is resolved at the end. I really liked the photographic world and a photographer’s work explained in the book.
But one thing I wanted was that there was a little more of Shemesh’s and Hagit’s personal life and their story.
