Here is a blurb of the book: 

A hydro power project in the remote Himalayas.
Three people brought together by fate. Nanda, an engineer from Kerala at the dam construction site hiding from his past, from the law, torn between the love of his dear ones and the traditional kalari code of revenge.
Khusru, a boy displaced from his native village in Kashmir, a gambit in the terror plot threatening to blow up the dam, working as a labour at the site.
Rekha, a Kathak dancer in heart, a doctor by profession, arrives at the campsite as the consort of Khusru.
A village that accepts the dictates of modernity with a heavy heart, its population steeped in superstitions and religious beliefs.
All throng the camp site like moths to a flame. Some escape untouched,successful; some miss a step and perish.
Each has a story to tell and a dream to realize. The fury of nature and hardship of project life has no mercy for the weak and time for the dead.
Like an eternal spectator the Dhauladhar watches as men risk their limb and life in their quest to full fill their dreams.

Here is my view on this book: 

I think I have never read any book which has such elaborate details of the characters and their history. The author has executed hydroelectric projects and many of the instances in this book are derived from there. The author must have done extensive research to write this book and the same reflects in the book.  Apart from the protagonist, I love the stories of Indumati, Mangu Ram and Katariina Herschel. You can find amazing stories in this one book. This book is inspiring, interesting and must read.  Do not miss it.

You hardly come across with the thriller book which is based in the corporate world. The cover and the title of this book is an instant catch. As I have not read much of the corporate-based books, I was not sure to like this book. However, when I start reading this book, I found it truly amazing. I would like to congratulate the author for his debut book as well as would like to show my gratitude for giving me a chance to read and review it. 😊
