Unlawful Justice � Chilling, Infuriating, Moralizing, Vindicating

\nRapes of women have always been treated as the victim�s fault. Even in this time and age,�there are people who think the victim should be in her �limits� and not �lure the rapist.\” It�is about time that this abominable thinking is rectified. And this is what author Vish�Dhamija tries to do in Unlawful Justice. With a dialogue that boils your blood and makes�you understand your own sensibilities, Unlawful Justice does complete justice to the topic�at hand.\n

Hard-hitting Plot, Beautiful Prose

\nUnlawful Justice tells the story of Baby, the daughter of the Diwans� domestic help Gayatri,�who is raped brutally. When the rapist is found dead in his own compound, the�investigation turns into one of murder. Are the two crimes related? Did Gayatri set out to�take revenge against the criminal who so cruelly had his way with her daughter? Will the�Diwans, with the help of their closest friend, Akash Hingorani, be able to prove that Gayatri�is innocent?\n\nVish Dhamija has a way with words. In just the first few pages of the book, the beautiful�prose comes through and hits home. The sensitive issue of rape, along with the minds that�still pollute our country with the rotten way they see rape, has been addressed�magnificently. While rape has been prevalent for ages, the disgust for it has found a voice�only recently. And this book demonstrates the mentality that promotes rape and the one�that vehemently proves that it is disgusting in every right.\n

Realistic Representations

\nUnlawful Justice not only depicts the trauma a rape victim undergoes, but also shows the�mentality of an unapologetic, cocky rapist. As the story progresses, you start to sympathize�with the wronged. More than that, the fury that engulfs you at the realization that�wrongdoers like Maheep and Maninder Singh exist in real life cannot be quantified. This is�testimony to the brilliance with which Vish Dhamija has outlined all the events in the story.�The most saddening and heartbreaking part, however, is that incidents like this happen�across the country. And most of the time, we as a people, intentionally or unintentionally,�turn a blind eye to it.\n

Our Judiciary as Shown in Unlawful Justice

\nThe Indian judiciary is not particularly known for its speedy delivery of justice. But in�Unlawful Justice, Vish Dhamija has taken the liberty to fast-track the case. This serves as a�reminder of the real world as well as that there is hope for us to become as efficient as the�book shows. Dhamija acknowledges this fast-tracking in a note at the end of book, rightly�saying that the book would have dragged on if that wasn�t done. In addition to this, the�courtroom drama is well-laid out, more to show the power justice has over injustice. The�narrative shows how important it is to have a competent advocate on your team who does�all his homework well in advance and is prepared to meet the problem head on.\n

Last Word

\nVish Dhamija�s Unlawful Justice is a total page-turner. The author does not build interest�gradually, but instead, holds it right from page 1. Well-written characters, well-woven�plot line, and an ending of this level makes sure that Vish Dhamija has only one way to go:�forward!\n\nAuthor(s): Vish Dhamija\nPublisher: Harper Collins India\nRelease: May 2017\nGenre: Fiction/Thriller\nBuy from�Amazon � Please use the affiliate link below & share the love!\n\n
