Initial cursory reading of the first few pages intrigued me enough to want to read more. However, as the story unfolded, the plot development unraveled and fell through. As a published author with several books under his belt (I wonder, really), I must say that the writing style was quite juvenile and very rough. The only 'nice' thing about it, if you are looking for it, is that one could say that it played out like a B-grade Bollywood movie. I am not in the habit of posting a negative review on a book, because to each his/her own -- but I really do not recommend reading this (unless critiquing is your cup of tea), nor would I take the chance on reading another one of this author's books, on the perchance that it might have some redeeming qualities.
