    Description

    Breach is a fast-paced, clever cyber thriller written by Amrita Chowdhury. It is set in Mumbai, Washington DC and Suzhou, and is essentially an online-meets-offline adventure of cyber threats and IP espionage, drug and medical research and ethics, troubled affairs and lost love, disillusionment and despair.

    Summary of the Book

    Weeks before Acel is ready to file the global patent application for Colare, a drug that can work miracles for pancreatic cancer patients, the research data preserved at the offshore data center in Mumbai starts becoming erratic. Dr. Udai Vir Dhingra, the charming young leader of its Indian business, has to bear the brunt of the situation. Fighting market pressure, media disclosures, harsh American bosses and troubled relationships, Dr. Vir must find out who the real culprits are, else his life is in trouble. Trapped in a dark world of fake online identities and masked digital footprints, the protagonist finds out that there is always so much more than what meets the eye in the cyber world.

    A page turner with an interesting climax,

    WHAT I FELT ABOUT THE BOOK

    Highs

    The Cover : What caught my eye as soon as I received the book was the way the title was displayed. Moving away from convention, the same is written vertically. I wondered? But then on going through the book I found an explanation which I wonder is what the author/ publishers/ cover designer had in mind. To me it signified a breach right from the lowest level to the highest level. Interesting isn’t it?

    Storyline: Interesting, intriguing, realistic and enagin...

    Interesting!

    When the publishing head of Harlequin writes a novel, you have to read it. When the publishing head of Harlequin writes a cyber mystery novel, you definitely have to read it.
    The novel gets full marks for being well I written and well-structured. The story spans across the Indian and American time zones. It is also set across different points in time, with chapters organized in a chronological order-according to the date and time.
    The story revolves around several primary, secondary, and te...

    Great book!

    This book combines aspects of cyber security in an interesting story and is not overly technical. It has all aspects of a good Bollywood script - thriller, suspense and romance!. The plot seamlessly moves from US to China to Mumbai. The male protagonist has several nerve-racking moments and makes this book an exciting experience for the reader. This fast-paced thriller is a must-read!

    a fast paced thriller that teaches you lot

    Before I began the book , I though I knew basics of hacking and the implications well. I was wrong. amrita here with her story about the data theft and corruption in the huge Pharma comany ACel has showed how cyber crimes not just target governments or MNC but how it affects daily lives too .

    It is a must read for all thriller lovers and more by those who think Indian fiction is alla bout romance. this book , though a bit stretched in terms of cast , is brilliantly researched and written.

    A clever concoction of drugs, patents and jealousy!

    There are a lot of similar whodunit books in the market around the same time as ‘Breach,’ and a lot of them use internet and related technology as a plot tool. It is definitely worth mentioning that Breach definitely has an edge over the others, thanks to its writing style. Breach by Amrita Chowdhury is a clever book that takes the internet, the security (or lack of it) of the servers over the internet, and biotechnology and weaves around a story that spans over two continents and at least t...

    A heady cocktail of cyber crime, cancer research, IP laws and medical ethics

    Amrita knows how to tell a fantastic story… she has blended fact and fiction with ease to create a readable, fast paced story. India is a huge outsourcing destination, but also faces flak because of corruption and ethic issues, and Amrita presents this viewpoint very smartly in the story.
    What I loved about Breach - there are amazing details about hacking, clinical research and technology, but the story is so much more - and the characters and their emotions come across very strong!
    Strongly...
