I once changed the history of Uttar Pradesh state with a gun and a finger. One shot, one man. Right man, wrong man. But that was thirty years ago. I shot people through their heads then. I pack jeera in a basement now.
This is me and here is my story.
He was the best sharpshooter in the state. A true bullet artist. But he gave it all up to lead a happy, normal, stable life . . . with his loving wife and dear son.
And that proved to be his undoing.
Resonant and deeply affecting, The Jeera Packer is the gripping tale of a man who after three decades of playing the happy family man returns to his profession of old for one final work—to shoot the chief minister.Convinced that this is his raison d'etre, will he manage to pull off this one last act, as his concluding hat tip to the man he could have been? Will he be able to brush away the jeera dust and rediscover himself? Or has the middle-aged family man already throttled the sharpshooter in him?

Introduction:

As always, firstly I would like to thank the author for a free copy of the book. The title and design of the cover page of the book is too captivating to not catch a reader’s attention. So I was pretty excited about reading this book. Here’s what it offers the readers.

Plot summary:

The story centres around a man who works as an ordinary shopkeeper, packing jeera and other groceries to be sold in his shop, which he co-owns with his wife, Jaya. But his ordinary life changes when he meets Lal Mani, his former aide, who reminds him of his dark past.

The jeera packer once used to be a sharpshooter who was known for never missing his targets. But for the love of his wife and son, he quits the world of crime and returns to a normal life. Lal Mani, however, goes on to become the state’s Home Minister and a right-hand man of the Chief Minister.

Learning about his riches and position, the jeera packer feels jealous and worthless about himself. He then decides to do something big in life, which would help him recover from the frustration and depression he has been experiencing all his life.

Soon after, he discovers that the big mission of his life would be to kill the corrupt and evil Chief Minister, who has been silently killing and sucking the good out of the people of the state. Once convinced about his goal, he starts making plans and actions in that direction.

However, unknown to him, there are many more enemies of the CM who are after his life in order to inherit his power and wealth after his death. Thus begins the deadly game of power, betrayal and killings.

Writing style:

The author has maintained an easy style of writing throughout the book, which perfectly personifies the political situations in most Indian states. Set in the backdrop of northern India, a lot of local and swear words are used, which make the conversations sound real.

My perception:

For those who love political thrillers, this is a great read! It is full of mystery and thrill, as well as drama and action that serves as a complete package, similar to a Bollywood movie. So if you would like to know about the dirty games of politics, go for this book!

  • Just started this book today and finished 100 pages in one go. Quite an interesting read till now. ☺
This is the signed book send by the author (swipe to read the beautiful message written by the author)

Here is the blurb of the book :

Sonal Kapoor is a reserved, hardworking entrepreneur running a florist boutique in London. She fights a paradoxical battle between her responsibilities at work and her only family there - her mother. And caught in between these is a story of Sonal's past - a terrible event that got her to flee India. Scars from her troubled past continues to manifest in multitude of ways, reminding her constantly about that horrific event. 
Serendipity happens when Dr. Ryan Percy enters her life and Sonal is challenged in ways she had never imagined. Ryan turns out as everything from Sonal's quintessential definition of the man of her dreams - BUT, Ryan too comes to the party with his own baggage from the past. A pivotal piece in the jigsaw of their lives appears to be missing. Could their puzzling lives be ever completed by each other? Do they complete or destroy each other? .

  • #reading a book is a fun, it simply opens up a new realm where you find peace, sorrow, and happiness. But there comes a certain time in life when the readers don’t just want to read, they can’t simply proceed from 10 pages. So if this thing is happening with you then you are definitely suffering from #readersblock This is similar to the #writersblock but where writer’s block is an acceptable aspect, reader’s block is not.

Reader’s block can happen when you read some really pathetic book (Yes! It happens with me 😐) or are mentally distracted. However, there are many reasons but these two are the primary reasons.

If you are also suffering from reader’s block then do not worry you are not alone! I have shared some easy tips to revive your #readinghabit 📚The link is the bio 📚
