The story: Indraneel Ray is an ex advertising professional who has quit his job and has a recent break up , these events make him go over the edge and he becomes an alcoholic. One fine morning he wakes up on a road near Nizammuddin Railway station with no inkling of how and why he reached there. He tries to recollect but just has a few hazy memories. To add to this situation he also finds out that he has been implicated in the brutal murder of Ishaan Singh a son of a very powerful minister. Although he intuitively feels that he hasn’t done this brutal act, he is unable to remember anything of the previous night and then begins his journey of being a fugitive. Will he remember what happened the previous night? Is he the murderer? I say read the story and find out.
The characters are well fleshed out, the situations and why and how of event are very appropriately described. I loved Simren, Indraneel’s ex girlfriend who tries to help him out of this tricky situation. The other characters are quite relevant and justified in their presence in the story.
I particularly loved the pace and how the reasoning for situations and circumstances is weaved into the story. Even the backstory of the characters just forms a part of the narrative effortlessly.
The things I didn’t like in the book….are a few but in case I write them here may lead to spoilers. In any way I can leave it cryptically. I had an issue with certain (very few) explanations in the end. Having said that it doesn’t take away anything from the story but if those issues were sorted then it would have been a much tighter ending. I somehow felt that the ending wa bit hurried. The author could have taken more time and pages and completed the story. Also there were a few typos and editing mistakes that could have been taken care of.
To the publisher I would like to say that in the paperback I felt that the print was too crowded. It could have been an easy reading experience with a slightly bigger font and better spacing.
I would like to recommend this book to all those who like thrillers and especially those based in India.
As per my impression, the book was worth the investment of time and money.
I unconsciously screamed when I finally understood the core of the story; meaning, the book became a part of me while reading it and occupied my senses successfully.
I found that the author has good narrating style and the only con is that the font size of book was small and I had to use my specs for comfortable reading.
Overall, I would rate this work a solid 4.6/10
Kudos to the author!

" Indraneel Singh murdered the son of a Minister"
Not remembering any event of last night, Neel was shocked and frozen. He was being chased by the police. Not knowing what to do he plans to hide untill all the things aren't clear to him. He is sure that he has no hand in the murder but the big black hole in his memory is not doing any good to him. Is he really guilty or not? Will he be able to get back his memory and solve the murder mystery or be on the run ?
For the answers you'll really need to read the book.
Runaway is a debut novel by Proteem Bhaduri and needless to say, I loved it. It has a perfect blend of thriller and mystery element. I loved how the characters were sketched and developed. The language was simple and easy. The story was fast paced and definitely a short read. Though there were few grammatical mistakes but they were ignorable.
Do pick up this book if you are fond of thrillers.
All of it is related. Sometimes a few things seemed a little stretched but it is a good read giving you more room for imagination. The pace is medium of the story. It is a good thriller book with a fresh idea and plot put up. The author has done a good job with the research and reaching to the depths of the characters. All the elements needed have been kept well by the author.
a decent read.
