Book Review: Veil of Shadows

Author: Siddharth Maheshwari

This is a spectacular plot with a fast-paced narrative that will keep the reader on tenterhooks.

The central plot revolves around how India’s external intelligence agency R&AW unearths hints of a sinister stratagem while working on an investigation. The country’s top nuclear scientist Hamid Ansari is in possession of a unique nuclear fusion formula. However he gets kidnapped and to the utter chagrin of the R&AW, their plan to let him be to catch the larger fish in the pond backfires.

Meanwhile, the democratic government in Myanmar is toppled by a military coup and at the same time a technological marvel called Vita which is developed by the DRDO falls prey to a planned heist.

For R&AW’s top agents Vikram and Ranbir, it’s a race against time.

The story unravels across various geographical locales, right from Delhi to Kathmandu, chaotic Myanmar, Multan and also the lush coffee estates of South India. The action unfolds and the reader is taken through a roller-coaster ride of adrenaline rush and one cant guess what happens next.

Who is the mastermind behind all the plotting and killing in the garb of patriotism? How deep is the iceberg of conspiracies that threatens to destroy peace and order in a volatile political arena?

The author has got in many subplots to enhance the ideologies and towards the end converged them meticulously without leaving any loose ends.

A riveting read!
