I was out on a date. Everything was perfect… Till that shot… a high-calibre one, no apparent sound. And, the man in front of me fell. A rifle with a suppressor? A sniper in the middle of a Mumbai mall? As the body count mounted, I was soon sucked deeper into the chaos unleashed by that shot. To survive and save those whom I care about, I have to become the man I left behind. I have no choice but to tap into a bloody past that has put me on the terror kill list. I may also have no option but to join hands with the sniper terrorising Mumbai. The problem is that the man has sworn to kill me. In a world where the young and poor kill and die in conflicts started by the old and rich, I and my unlikely companion finally discover the thin line that separates a mere killer from a hero. This is our story…
It is such a well-researched book. Each character has been really vividly sketched, the setting is set to the utmost detail. It felt like it’s written by an actual commando soldier rather and not an IIM graduate corporate professional.
The fight tactics the protagonist uses, the strategies he chooses with parallel flashbacks of his trainings. The laws within the armed forces, everything to the minor details has been intricately woven into a mind-boggling story.
I regret having not read the author’s precious works.
My Rating: 4.5/5 🌟
