Book Review

Shantanu stabs himself to death and Nishi blames Shantanu for spoiling her life and reason for her jail time, William Who is the master for F.U.C.K believes that Nishi has secret to reveal her father’s unfinished project. John,a traitor in F.U.C.K and works for Solomon who runs a team MISERYTOOL and plans to wipe out Delhi completely. Who is going to save Delhi? Could we trust them?

The book is completely full of twists and turns. Till hundred pages i had no idea what and how the author is going to end the book with these many shocking turns. But the book somehow got my interest back with the further pages. As I expected the end was little disappointing. Just that it was over without any twists.

The unexpected scenes really worked out well in the story. It’s that which made me to finish the book. Every character had their bombshell to shed. But each twist were tightly chained to each other.

Overall, this book is a decent thriller and mystery with all surprise elements. Couldn’t complain much but felt it could have been better with the end part.


Yes, Who likes to have twist and turn in each and every page.
