Losing their faith in the System, a group of MNC-employed youngsters decides to take revenge on some politicians and businessmen after having suffered at their hands. Their master plan also exposes the connections of the powerful with the rich, of the mafia with politicians and of those who exploited the poor. All this leads to a war. A war that had never happened.

The Chief of Intelligence had never dealt with such brilliant people who were entangling him in multiple versions of events. After a while, he is unable to differentiate between the real and planted evidence. The clock is ticking. The media is on adrenaline.

The Chief is faced with several questions. How did it all happen? Will he be able to solve the case? Can he get the accused politicians acquitted? Should he find an escape for himself amidst the turmoil?

It’s time he found the answers!


A story of a group of friends, working at an MNC company and planning to take their revenge on some renowned politicians and businessmen, isn’t it interesting. I gotta say, stories like such makes you think woah! If you think about it, political thrillers are not really that popular in India and even if some book gets the hit, the writing style doesn’t really go up the mark. There is always a sort of subtle drama with a hint or terror and darkness when one writes about such books and I would love to say that this book has all these pointers.

Starting a few 70-80 pages, the book is pretty dragging and abrupt, kinda makes you not-wanna-read the book, but advisable, don’t stop reading. After you pass this phase, the book becomes very intriguing and way too much interesting. This book creates a story of the “good-and-evil” kinda thing with some fascinating villains whom you might like more than the heroes. At the beginning of the book, there is a lot of character introduction with their backstory, it gives a good structure to the story. To be honest, I loved that the author introduced some new concept in terms of a book, politics, friendship, love, thriller, you don’t really find all these together, the twists and turns make you go crazy, in a positive way.

The writing style is very crisp and simple, doesn’t make you feel overwhelmed. What ticked me a bit was the various character perspectives that came up, oh dear, made me scratch my head a little bit. You will find some instances to be dragging, kinda loses tracks still the plot is well written, keeps you on high alert. It is a fast paced book and that is actually a really good thing cause once you start reading it, you hardly take any time to finish it. Those who love reading ‘Thriller’ and ‘Politics’ both, a must pick for them.
