The story has been very craftily woven in the present and past, which unfolds at a very appropriate pace. It starts quite unexpectedly with a duel between two assassins, one of them walks alive only to land up in a trouble of meeting the daughter of the other. The destiny has its own plans, wherein the girl, Nimisha aka Bomber Girl and the survivor, Mark teams up to kill the PM of India.

The Reviewer’s Heart…
I generally keep targets for finishing a book, and I kept 7 days for finishing this one. I started it late night and the story was so intriguing and interesting at the same time, that I finished it in less than 7 hours (PS I’m not at all exaggerating). The book tells us about ‘Karma’, with a hidden moral of ‘what goes around comes back’. The language of the book is lucid yet compelling, author has created an aura which binds the author with the plot of the book and there is no breaking of link anywhere in the book. Being an emotional guy, I’d add some part of the book did moisten my eyes, and I believe the author wanted just that. The author has done a very neat job in transitions that the plot as well as individual characters take. Readers are busy throughout the book, as the characters’ perception keeps on changing, while a character maybe shown in bright light in one part; the same character would be shown in dark light by cheekily providing some addition information that creates an illusion in front of the readers.
This novel has been very well narrated and the story unfolds in quite suspenseful manner, which glues the reader as it is more like a rollercoaster ride where you don’t know what may come next and you enjoy as you get along with it.
What I liked?
I liked the simple language and strong plot of the book which entertains the reader throughout the course of the adventure. I’d also appreciate the author’s research regarding this book, making it as close to reality as possible.
I simply loved the character of Arjun, the cop, who was a great professional. In a situation where even the stone hearted people gave up to their emotions, Arjun remained committed to his duty, he knew how to create a balance between the professional and personal life, though he struggled in between but everyone had a trust in him that he would manage, and at the end he really did.
What I disliked?
There is simply nothing that is lacking in this thriller. It’s a complete package with lots of twists and turns which are expected by murder thrillers and keeps the reader entertained and puzzled till the very end.
Why should one read this book?
Though the book does give out a hidden message about the karma and completing of the circle of life, this book should be read for the thrill it offers. The book is one of the few books you can take on a long train journey, or can read on a chilly night to give you a spine-chilling experience.
