About the Author
Balakrishna Kamath is a former IB officer. He is a recipient of the coveted national level honours such as the Indian Police Medal and President’s Police Medal. Although passionate about writing, being in Government service, Kamath had no opportunity to write for open media. It was only after he hung up his professional boots that he started writing, mainly fiction, for public domain.

Though it is a work of fiction, the author's professional experience in the Agency is easily visible. The events seem realistic. The media coverage, pressures on the Indian Government (especially the Home Minister), a restless opposition, and the pressures on the faceless Agency officers while handling personal issues give an insight into the workings of these officers and operatives. Yet, both the sides labour to keep the conflict under wraps for danger of diplomatic fallout and resultant public outcry.
The last chapter is a masterpiece, and needs a special mention. This is where the book slows down, and one can see the very fine aspects of psychological and defensive techniques between the two agencies. There are various other subtler points sprinkled throughout the book, if one is careful enough to read in.
There are some minor errors that can be glossed over.
I do wish the author pens more such books.
The sole purpose for the order was to get acquainted with indian crime writing and i think it does pretty good job regardingly.
In comparison i find things are too expodent and common things rather making self understandable are made explicit which makes events even more ellaborate and to be frankly boring. Though overall, one can really enjoy the indian writing and get experience with indian intelligence working.
