A bitter winter wind blowing outside spoke to me. There was no one else. And then it struck me. She might have truly disappeared! Sometimes, you get a sense of these things .

It’s been one hell of a tough week at Yummimages, a digital infotainment site, with controversies seeping into the politicking within the office. To calm things down, Rahul, the founder, plans a party at his home. His goal is to set things right between his fiancée-to-be, Simone, and his business partner and close friend, Suhel. With the party in full swing it’s time for Rahul to have ‘the talk’, but suddenly Simone is nowhere to be found.

As all investigations come to naught, Rahul takes matters into his own hands and soon has a few suspects lined up. It’s just a matter of time before he knows the truth. But reality can be so twisted, so bizarre, so utterly unbelievable . . .

I would like to thank WritersMelon for the review copy. My review here is honest and unbiased.

Book Review

This novel undoubtedly goes with the thriller at each and every page.Well the story started off with an hide and seek game and slowly catches up the speed.

Rahul and Sushel ,the childhood buddies starts up a digital media company where Rahul handles the in house works and Sushel handles off the hook tasks of the company. There comes an ultimate girl Simone who becomes an important asset to the company. One fine party Simone goes missing  which breaks Rahul to the core. She is his fiancee.He decides to search Simone all by himself. Soon the dark secrets melts the ice which will surprise  the reader’s mind.

The plot is a neck through work which runs along the entire story ,even a few line about it would become a spoiler. The story will confuse us a lot,well that’s how the thriller works. There were essence of thriller,rage, paranormal, jealous,lust,love and what not an absolute murder too. What are you afraid of? Ofcourse fear played the pivot role. Fear makes us vulnerable to any situation. Are you the real you? That’s what this story is about. Author just walked us towards that fear. 

Secret past of the characters were superbly executed and I liked the connection which author had with me(reader). The twist was more way up than surprising and I liked the end part. 

Overall Fear Is The Key is Quiet a run through thriller with unexpected twist which would be a complete package for a film.
