For one person, life is a miracle. For another, it could be one whole story of meetings and farewells. Author Santhoshya Jayamali believes that everyone has a story to say about life. In Illicit: In the Eyes of God, Man and Beast, she shares one such story—a complex tale in one’s mind, but presented to the reader in simple language.

A human being is born with desires, temptations, and unlimited needs. All these may vary from person to person, time to time, and age to age. Sometimes, the same desire can grow in a person from infancy to adulthood. Such desires can have negative or positive effects. They can bring about the deterioration of one’s morals and values. The same desires can result in tragedy.

In Illicit, Hans, Lucy and Anton, who are noble, maid and gardener respectively, are presented with equally pathetic flaws which bring about the ultimate tragedy. However, it is a decision left to be made by the precious reader. Engrossing from beginning to end, this intriguing novel will appeal to all those who admire a piece of creative writing, love fiction, and have a passion for reading
