Each story in The Good, the Bad and the Unknown is just a small, non-significant mystery that Rishi has to solve, some of which could be featured as side-plots in a fully-formed novel. With these stories you gain an insight in to author Raj Tilak Roushan himself, the people he works with and against.
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly is a remarkable account of a small number of intelligent, hard-working, driven and admirable African-American women who made significant contributions to the Space Race and to the fields of math, science and engineering.
With Ash On Their Faces by Cathy Otten is a remarkable story of Yezidi women's strength, perseverance, and intelligence; and we should all admire them. However, I think it’s important to remember that there are countless young women who continue to endure immense cruelty on a daily basis. My thoughts are with these young women.
This book, The Deadly Dozen, is a frenzied feast for all true-crime fans! It's a very insightful and detailed account of some of the most horrific serial killers. In fact, while reading this book I just had to keep turning the pages yet again. Not just because it's all that enjoyable in any way, shape or form, to delve a little too deeply into the malefic minds of such murderous men, but because I sincerely believe that most people are fascinated in one way or another by serial killers.
