I received a copy of this book at the Indiblogger meet. At the time I had no idea about what to expect from this book except that it was a medical thriller.

The book revolves around Nitin and the turns his life takes once he lands up at Live Well Medical College and Research Institute at the beautiful and scenic Ooty for his course in clinical and experimental medicine. Once there his love life and professional life both goes for a spin. On one hand he meets Neha, a fellow researcher and falls for her. On the other hand, some unexplained deaths at the center demands his attention. Suspecting some sort of foul play, Nitin decides to investigate the matter.

The author has done a wonderful job in keeping his narrative straightforward and his dainty language helps the reader get into the story easily. Once the reader is settled in, the author then slowly unveils his characters and the plot in a way that builds up both tension and expectations. Nitin is a character who is easy to follow and understand. He feels like a regular guy and in that lies his attraction for the reader. We usually love larger than life characters; but it is more satisfying to see a regular next-door neighbor kind of guy rising to the occasion. Also, I must point out that the book was a smooth ride because of the way the author has delivered the medical aspect of the book.

The book is a fast paced read and can be finished in one sitting. And, all in all, this book offers a surprisingly entertaining experience.
