About the Book :
The year is 2014. Pakistan is now a full-fledged democracy and beginning to reconcile with India. However, there are forces working against this fragile peace.

Their plan: to unleash Pralay, Indias experimental intercontinental ballistic missile, on the subcontinent. As the missile changes course en route, it hits Pakistan and causes collateral damage. In response, Pakistan declares war on India. As the web of politics, deceit and treachery deepens, it turns out there are larger interests at stake and bigger players involved in a confrontation that threatens to destabilize the entire subcontinent.

It's great for a debut novel! Fast-paced, gripping, written in a very captivating narrative style, and full of information about India and the world,........ especially the Indian military. I love how it takes us all over the world....... Very strategic perspective, and breath-taking plot! .........To top it all, It is great how the IAS is shown to handle the military and the politicians.......Fun to read! Recommended.....
As the title suggests, I really enjoyed reading this novel. I am sure, the author has researched a lot and has some military learning to write a book such as this. While reading the book, I couldn't help but wonder how good this movie would look on the big screen. I think, this would make a great bollywood movie in the future.
Disclaimer: This is a High IQ book. If you have a certain understanding of this world, you will love this book. But if you're looking for mushy romance or corporate angst, this is not for you. This is a far cry from the campus romances that are found in every nook and corner. This is one book with actual substance....A War thriller and a political novel that gives you a better perspective on this world. Great storytelling....amazing plot....and so fastpaced that it lives upto the tag of thriller it has! Must Buy!
I am so happy I bought this book. It is...different, in a good way. It takes us to 2014 and how India-Pak relations are going to contour our domestic and international stability. A well researched, lucid, engrossing and amazing thriller. Khan has done a very commendable job of writing on sensitive issues with such impartiality and sensitivity, a very mature treatment from a writer so young. In short, a great thriller, and a must buy!
