MY REVIEW: I have received a review copy of “Sniper’s Eye” by Mainak Dhar from Writersmelon in exchange for an honest review.

The story begins with the shooting of a man in a Mumbai mall on a Sunday. Aaditya Ghosh, the central character of the story, who is actually in the mall to enjoy a movie with his girlfriend Zoya, gets involved in trying to catch the shooter and discovers that the shooting is part of an elaborate plot.

Aaditya, though currently employed in a corporate office, is actually an armed forces veteran who had to resign under dubious circumstances. Unfortunately, his role in trying to catch the sniper brings him into the limelight and his past is exposed by the media.

The tension builds up as senior police and army officers are being targeted by what appears to be a team of terrorists, headed by an expert sniper Aman Karzai.

In order to protect Zoya and clear his Army record, Aaditya agrees to collaborate with the Intelligence Bureau and the police. He lets himself be used as “bait” in order to draw out the sniper.

But the plan goes haywire and Aaditya is taken by the terrorists. When taken captive, he discovers that nothing is as it appears and that both he and the sniper Aman Karzai are both being manipulated by an evil mastermind.

The tension in the story is built up wonderfully. The action scenes are extremely well depicted and keep the reader turning the pages for more. I recommend this book to readers as it is an engrossing, interesting and taut thriller that will keep you guessing till the end.

I am a voracious reader and am always in the middle of a book. I am also obsessed with coffee, makeup, skincare and fitness, though not necessarily in that order!
