“we must see other human beings in our own self, then only there will be no sufferings since you are seeing the lord in every creation”
This is the second book by the author and just like his first book the plot has parallel stories running which gets unified eventually. But I was a bit disappointed in this book.
The story revolves around three people – Naithy, Alice and Prem Rollands who are brought together by fate or maybe a terror group. Each character has his own story of love, betrayal and revenge. The chapters are divided by the number of characters and each one narrated from their point of view.
Naithy was a rich and successful businesswomen who lost her husband in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. She later found love in Tony D’Souza, a handsome model working for her company. But her life turned upside down when she got to know about Tony’s real motive. Will she be able to solve the mystery around Tony?
Alice was Naithy’s daughter who was on the run after killing her stepdad. She was not like other girls of her age but more smart and was outwitting the cops by keeping her identity a secret. Why did she killed her stepfather?
Prem Rollands, a St. Stephen’s genius and a computer geek who was hell bent on taking revenge of his brother Arun’s death. He was on the lookout for Alice to find out the dark secrets leading to the killing of his brother. Will he be able to avenge his brother’s death?
“When your trusted ones betray you, you must learn to turn betrayal in to trust”
The paths of the three characters were entwined to form a thriller story. Will they be able to complete their individual stories?
Overall the plot was interesting with inclusion of people from different regions and origins. Some parts and stories were interesting but the detailing and information was too much boring and unnecessary. I liked how the author was able to describe each and every character so deeply but there were too many characters and so many information which made it a bit boring. There are too many grammatical errors and this book needs to be edited. The writing style of the author is complex but understandable. It was a satisfactory read for me.
