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.
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.
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.
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!
