Review- The Karachi Deception by Shatrujeet Nath

The Karachi Deception on Goodreads


“…one of the finest thrillers I’ve come across…” -- Zac O’Yeah

Three commandos of the Indian Army’s elite Unit Kilo—Major Imtiaz Ahmed, Captain Shamsheer Suleiman and Lieutenant Rafiq Mehmood—are chosen for a one-of-a-kind ops mission: to enter Pakistan and eliminate dreaded underworld don, Irshad Dilawar. However, somehow, the Inter-Services Intelligence and Dilawar always seem to be one step ahead of them, foiling every plan they make. It doesn’t take long for Major Imtiaz to realize that something is amiss—the operation has been compromised. Will he be able to successfully complete his mission, or are he and his men, like Abhimanyu, entering a trap they cannot make their way out of? Set in the world of covert operations, where double-crossing and diabolical mind games are the norm, The Karachi Deception will keep you hooked till the very end.

When I first came across The Karachi Deception, I thought it sounded so good. Then when I met the author, I was literally begging Shatrujeet for a copy of it because I was so looking forward to reading the book everyone was raving about. When the book was published again at last, trust me, I was the happiest person, and while it took me a lot of time to get to the book and even more time to finish it, I am so glad I read it because it was entertaining and thrilling. 

At first glance, The Karachi Deception is a very well organised book. By that, I mean that the various parts its divided into and the various situations that take place at once were very well done in a way that wasn't even a bit confusing, which is what tends to happen when there are too many things going on at once. While it takes a while to get used to the various divisions in the book, once I started reading, then whether it was after a gap of a few hours or a few days; I was completely into it because it was a very gripping plot. 

While I'm not into thrillers, like I said before, there was just that special something about The Karachi Deception that made me want to read it. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised because I really enjoyed the guessing game that every chapter made me play. Shatrujeet's writing was very on point and that has made me a bigger fan of his. Everything in this book was so well done. I would definitely recommend it to fans of thrillers.
