It pulled him into a vortex of danger so deep that he lost all he had. It happened to him and if you think it can’t happen to you think again.


A suspense love thriller story it is. Dhruv who is happy with his wife and kids and having a beautiful life falls in love with Anuradha.Having an extramarital affair. Anuradha brings happiness in his life and he feels some kind of connection with her, Their bond grows from office works to other various conversations and was now in a relationship.

The plot gets interesting when Anuradha tells Dhruv about her boyfriend who committed suicide. How they fell in a relationship and how sid committed suicide. Suddenly Hemant Bhai called Dhruv and asked for video which Sid had recorded. Dhruv unaware about the whole situation asks Anuradha to tell the whole truth. Anuradha then told about the video and Dhruv then went to place where Sid committed suicide. Meanwhile, Dhruv’s wife Shalini came to know about Dhruv’s relationship with Anuradha and left home with kids. Dhruv got Sid’s mobile and found the video which Hemant Bhai was talking about. he gave Hemant Bhai the video and then things were settled. But the story didn’t end here. Dhruv later found out about the hidden camera at the spot where Sid committed suicide and was shocked after watching the recording. It was not a suicide but a murder. Later, Dhruv ends their his relationship with Anura and tells Shalini whole truth. The Story like a happy ending ends with Dhruv having his family back.

The plot is designed well narrative and interactive. Though Sid’s part of story is lil extended, it’s worth reading. A suspense thriller story with good writing style full of moments it is. How love can drag you to hell is what the story is all about. it holds readers attention throughout.  The language is simple and the author has narrated proper events at proper timings. Adding some song lines to the story had given a special touch.
If you love thriller romance, this book is for you.
