The last thing Jack Baxi expected when a detective rang his doorbell in the middle of the night was that he’d be tortured and left for dead, with a young woman he’s never met before.
Now, running for their lives, Jack and Aisha frantically try to discover why the detective was so convinced they both have information on a missing person. Jack is a Sikh corner shopkeeper with a criminal record. Aisha is a Muslim medical student from a wealthy family. What could possibly connect them?
Their desperate hunt for answers will take them on a perilous journey, from the sprawling underground markets and dangerous red-light district of Delhi all the way to the most militarized zone in India.
But little do they know, a dangerous organisation is watching their every move – and they’ll do whatever it takes to stop Jack and Aisha learning the truth . . .
This was such a great read, it had everything I like in a thriller. It was fast paced, lots of twists and turns, not really sure where the story is heading, It was fantastic, I couldn’t believe that this is a debut novel it was superb. I read it in a day as I just didn’t want to put it down. It all starts with Jack and when one evening he gets a knock on his door from someone claiming to be a detective, with this detective is a woman and their lives are at risk if they don’t do something quick. So they flee, but what they both really want to know is why them and what could connect them? they go on a journey through India with the help of a very nice taxi driver who doesn’t know what he has let himself in for. Will they find out the truth before it is too late? The story moved at a good pace, some of the chapters left you hanging so you feel obliged to continue through to the next chapter. The characters were believable and the sense of urgency of finding out is really there. This author is definitely one to watch in the future.
