I just finished "Operation Dragon Strike" and read it in three sessions over two days. You were right in stating that it is "one of the most unputdownable thrillers". Unfortunately, I had to eat. While reading I felt that my Aadhaar data was compromised and waited desperately for Armaan to unlock the data base. I now await further developments in Armaan's case. Will he be courtmartialled? What will happen to him in that proceeding? Thank you for penning such a wonderful book.
It started off well, has great twists and ends well. Something like a Hindi masala film, complete with spoes fighting bad men. A firm grasp over technology and weapons gives the story a realistic feel. You are put in the midst of it all and you can feel the terror the men feel. I felt the submarine op was wasteful and unnecessary. Otherwise, it is a good weekend read, helpful to take your mind off the lockdown.
Such narratives with so much speed and vigour is a treat for a reader, nearly robust the subtle subterfuge and climax it was exciting all through. Though it seems too invincible for it to be realistic, but definitely never lost the grip.
Excellent plot with breathtaking narration. This novel reinforces the unconditional patriotism exhibited by our Defence forces and Intelligent Agencies. To conquer the enemy, mind and technique need to be at it's best.
The plot is good and the lay reader may find the book great but not someone who knows a thing or two about spy fiction / military thrillers and not a military guy in any case. Badami needs to be more convincing and must realize that even when it's fiction , you can't pull fast ones in this genre of writing.
