I was a little uncertain about reading this book but I was equally eager to know how the writer plans out the plot and carries it out by small group of dedicated people from different backgrounds. I am really pleased that I read it and enjoyed it thoroughly.It has an unusual story, very very difficult and extremely dangerous playing field but the author S. HUSSAIN ZAIDI has carried it out very deftly and successfully. It is worth reading and enjoying. --By Om Prakash Bajaj on 26 June 2015
