#Spotlight - To Hell and Back by Anurag Anand

About the Book:
A mindless road-rage incident leaves a young and promising entrepreneur dead. Is it an accident, or a cold-blooded murder, planned to absolute perfection? Namrata, a young professional, is enveloped by all the quintessential elements of life in the fast lane—a staling marriage, an extramarital affair and eyes full of dreams, until a fun evening turns into a chilling nightmare for her.
Renu, a girl living in a world marred by regressive customs and dated practices, has resigned to the patriarchal ways of her world, until they begin to cast their malicious shadows on her unborn child.
Their worlds, although separate, intersect each other in a single strike of tragedy that none could have imagined. It is then that this story begins and sends everyone’s life on a dizzy tailspin…
Will they be able to get back to their safe and secure lives?
To Hell and Back is a fast-paced thriller that will not only keep you on tenterhooks till the very end, but it shall also rattle your beliefs on how ‘crime-proof’ the world that you live in truly is.

Read an Excerpt:

You shall never know what it’s like to dance in the rain. . .
Studying the deluge from the confines of your world,
A world of the cautious, a world by the sane.

But what when the torrent refuses to wane. . .
And the wicked waters threaten to seep into your lane,
Into a world that was safe, into a world with no stain?

The muck and the filth will suddenly seem strange. . .
As your silence of today exposes you to a whole new world,
A world that’s out there, a world of horrors, a world of pain.
