This is my second book of the author. The first book I read “Romance Shorts” by the same author in my initial reading days and I loved it so I had to pick this one. This one is thriller genre though and I have been reading thriller genre a lot lately. And I absolutely loved this book. I will briefly summarise the blurb as too much of it will be spoilers for this book. The protagonist of the story is Vikram Oberoi. He is the Vice President and Head of India operations of NexGen technologies . He had been murdered and then from the second chapter story fell into the flashback that is four months ago. Vikram had a wife and several love interest. There are number of other characters like Sonal, Prachi, Aarti. The story has touch of glamour as well as corporate life style. It has been portrayed perfectly. I loved the revenge, sexual harassment, politics, karma, power, motives like components of the story. It makes the perfect plot. Writing crime fiction of thriller is very difficult as every piece has to fit perfectly or else reader will loose interest and author has done a great work in it.
In general I loved the plot. It’s a different and complete package.The narration style of the author is wonderful. It’s like watching a movie. The plot has been filled with lots of twists and turns. I liked the language and vocabulary used by the author. Overall it’s good one. I will definitely recommend it and looking forward to read more from the author.
