A gripping story with very well portrayal of characters, great vocabulary and writing skills. The narration goes so well as if the scenes are getting played in front of my eyes. This is a debut work of author bt it didn’t feel like one, there is deftness in the writing style. Overall, I found the story extremely interesting and catchy. Talking about the book cover , that’s the main attraction of the book that creates a curiosity in the mind of the reader, the title cannot be more apt than this. I really loved reading this book and hoped this book never ended. If you looking for an engaging read with effect of thrill and suspense , go for this.
