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!

Great storytelling....amazing plot....and so fastpaced that it lives upto the tag of thriller it has! Must Buy!
