The author tried very hard to write a gripping mystery. The attempt was very clearly visible throughout the book. The descriptions were a bit too much, but not something which will bother you. The story is passable. It is definitely not bad, but it is also not as great as the summary gives.
Andy Karan is a journalist who has retired from Army. He has a thing for his boss at the magazine he works. He loves adventure and knowingly goes towards danger.
One thing I liked is the comparison of Andy Karan with the Character of Karan from Mahabharata. Andy refuses to be like Karan and strives very hard to not accept defeat in life. That is something which should be taken upon as a life motto for everyone.
Other than that, the story was an average mystery novel. I did not get the thrill which is normally associated with thrillers.
The positives... the language is simple yet elegant and will appeal to many. The attention to detail is noteworthy - the images flow in front of your eyes naturally. There is good pace all along, esp after Andy reaches Mumbai.
The misses... the plot is little too simplistic, but I guess you can pack only that much in a 250-page novel. Until Indian readers mature to and start enjoying 500-page thrillers, authors will be forced to compromise on complexity. The romance piece feels a little forced at places, and could certainly have been more developed.
Overall... a great read for readers who want to try something different than those cliched love stories.
Looking forward to the next one in the series.
