To survive and save those whom I care about, I have to become the man I left behind. I have no choice but to tap into a bloody past that has put me on the terror kill list. I may also have no option but to join hands with the sniper terrorizing Mumbai.
The problem is that the man has sworn to kill me.In a world where the young and poor kill and die in conflicts started by the old and rich, I and my unlikely companion finally discover the thin line that separates a mere killer from a hero.

About The Author: Mainak Dhar is an alumnus of IIM, Ahmadabad and has spent more than two decades in the corporate sector. A self described cubicle dweller by day and writer by night, Mainak is also the author of over a dozen books, some of which have been bestsellers in India and abroad.

My Review:
It is a nice suspense thriller. The story revolves around a man named as Aaditya, who is an ex army officer and had quite a controversial past there. He has now moved on with his life as a civilian with his girlfriend Zoya.. His past in army is something which he did not want to talk about now, in his new life. However, once he was in mall with his girlfriend, there was a sniper attack and the man was shot dead in front of him. As an ex army officer instinct, he just ran to catch the snipers in the opposite building. This all got him involved in the whole game of continuous attacks in the next few days and ultimately he himself too ended up in the hit list of the enemy..... So, the story is about why is he in the 'To be dead' list of the enemies? How will he save himself? Does this has something to do with his scandalous past in army?

The story moves very fast and does not feel boring or slow. Whole of the story basically revolves around Aaditya. The language used is pretty simple. No complex story line or heavy jargons.
It does involve a highly sensitive area\topic for India that is relationship between India and Pakistan and the terrorism!!
It shows how media can be manipulative and far from reality and how does the corruption works among people sitting on the powerful positions.

Overall it was an average read for me as a fiction thriller. It was not boring at all but was not too exciting for me personally. If you like these kind of thriller suspense, here is the link for you guys to buy this one :)
