Reviewed in India on 16 March 2021
How many times have you come across a book that has pushed you to venture into a not-so-favorite genre? Well for me personally, that happens rarely. Thriller is not my genre at all, but the intriguing premise, pushed me to pick up the book, especially because of my keen interest in Indian politics.

The book revolves around the investigation of the ‘accidental’ death of Ashraf Zain, a popular and loved leader from Bihar, an outsider to the world of politics. As the investigation is handed over to a young CBI team comprising of Yohan, Sukumar and Ila, the journey unravels multiple motives and powerful players, eventually ending with an unguessable reason. It genuinely blew my mind.

The author has cleverly woven a fictional story against a background inspired by modern history of Bihar. It is a refreshing change to read a book which has managed to provide a balanced historical account of events, without attaching one’s own opinion to the same. The language is easy to understand and the cliff-hangers at the end of every chapter makes for a real page turner.

A must read for anyone interested in Indian Politics or Thrillers.
