During the summer of 2000, Delhi Police brought allegations of match-fixing against the South African skipper Hansie Cronje. Though he denied the allegations to start with, Cronje later went on to reveal shocking truths. The confessions of a bookie in India then went on to shake the foundations of valour and gallantry that the game of cricket stands for. Before long, the scandal spread its tentacles all over the world. Crime Beyond 22 Yardsis a fast-paced reality thriller that throws light on the biggest international scandal in the game of cricket, how heroes turned overnight into villains, and how there was tragic redemption at the end of this sordid saga.

MY REVIEW :
Crime Beyond 22 Yards is a book that will tempt you to read it as soon as you read the blurb of the book. If you are a huge cricket fan, I am sure you are not going to waste a second and start reading the book. The cover of the book has been designed beautifully and the title does full justice to the storyline of the book. Being myself a huge cricket fan, I was surprised and shocked after reading this book. As the book is based on true stories, while reading I felt that if I would not have read this book; I would have never know about these scandals. Betting and Match Fixing is the most common word in the field of cricket and the book holds many hidden secrets of it. The author did a good research before penning down the stories. The language of the book is lucid and the author has very well narrated the story. The best thing is it is a short read but one won’t find that the author is jumping from one place to another quickly. The pace has been maintained well by the author. Overall, I would recommend this book to all the mystery lover and cricket fans.
RATING : 5/5
