Description
A software mogul gears up to launch a revolutionary surveillance system. A terrorist mastermind prepares to wage war against the Indian state. A young man is found dead under suspicious circumstances.
One morning, the body of a young man is found by the railway tracks, battered and bruised. He is soon identified as software engineer Vishal Deshmukh, aka Shot, by his estranged elder brother, Ajay. However, the circumstances surrounding his death remain murky, especially when the autopsy throws up traces of hard liquor and cocaine in his blood. When a distraught Ajay notices strange injuries on Shot's hands, it leads him to believe that his brother was tortured and killed, but his pleas of help are ignored by the police as well as the hospital authorities. As he starts to dig deeper, he unravels a terrifying conspiracy that has deadly implications for the country. Racing against time, Ajay must piece together the final days of Shot's life to find the killers... before they find him.

Riveting, well written Thriller!

Very well written edge of the seat thriller with interesting twists and turns. The way some of the pieces have been researched in depth and presented give an insight into the crime world!

Good Read... both for the plot and the quality of writing!

Chilling

It is 1984 revisited. I read it cover to cover in 24 hours. It is just un put down able. It is a chilling reminder of how modern intelligence apparatus can be misused by those who are meant to use it for public good

Excellent Thriller ..... Extremely fast-paced and engaging

Extremely fast-paced and gripping. Its has all to keep you engaged and involved: drama, emotion, revenge, love and more.....

Loved the way Mumbai was integrated in the story. The book brings all the locations to life, from South Mumbai to the suburbs and extended suburbs. As a person who loves Mumbai, it captures the details of the city beautifully.
