My Review - 

The behavior of an individual is a reflection of his value system. Educate his mind well and he will be a good citizen.

Faith and the Beloved is the second book written by Kochery C Shibu. The plot is based on criminal activities that intervene with a Syrian Christian family. It involves a series of murders, sexual fantasies, and deceptions.

The protagonist is a teenage girl Alice who ran away after an explosion that killed three people. Her mother, Naithy Cherokil, is a successful businesswoman. She was wedded to a Muslim named Jiza. He was killed in the terrorist attack, and after a year, Naithy married Tony D'Souza, a Canadian. Alice disliked him from starting and decides to stay in a hostel. They have been married for ten years, but Naithy didn't find out anything alarming about Tony. Things took a turn when one-day Naithy went into a coma, and Tony was found dead. 

Alice was nowhere to be found, and the people from the underworld is looking for her. The police also tried to connect the dots but unable to see a pattern for a long time. While Alice took everything in her hands, she drives some lights on the situation to help the cops. Her friends were proved helpful and loyal. A police officer Prakash focused on two brothers, and their story played a significant role and gives an engaging twist. The book deals with sleeper cells, mobs, gang wars, corruption, deceits, and the people caught between all these.

Just like Kochery C Shibu's debut book, Men and Dreams in the Dhauladhar, this book is also filled with parallel stories and a little bit of hydroelectricity project. If you read the first book, you know what I am talking about. The language is lucid, but there are a few typo errors. 

But what I like about this book; that it is fast-paced, short, and quite impressive. This one is focused on engaging narrative instead of dull-moving fantasies. I like that the author portrays a strong and resourceful female character. The author really worked on the suggestions, and that's why this novel comes out beautifully. I recommend this fast-paced book to newbies.
