A good thriller is always a welcome read and so I started this one with a lot of anticipation. The book starts with a high risk nuclear-heist and then the protagonist Shruti’s husband, Ashwin Rathore is killed. And now, Shruti is the next target.
After his death, Ashwin is in limbo and he decides to save his wife and unborn child, rather than moving forward to the after-life. What follows is a game of cat and mouse between Shruti and authorities where Ashwin interferes with his super natural powers.
The story starts well and continues at a good pace, holding the interest. Though I found it getting slow towards the end. The characters are good. Shruti is a woman who works for the Indian Intelligence Bureau and has a multi faceted personality. She is aloving wife and at the same time a headstrong officer. Ashwin is killed in the beginning but the story is narrated from his point as a ghost-like presence who is willing to do anything to save his love. I was quite intrigued by the use of physics to explain the super natural and for most part this book doesn’t disappoint. There is a sequel to The Last Attractor of Chaos and I will wait to know where the story goes.
My rating: 3.9/5
