Three commandos of the Indian Army s
elite Unit Kilo Major Imtiaz Ahmed, Captain Shamsheer Suleiman and Lieutenant
Rafiq Mehmood are chosen for a one-of-a-kind ops mission: to enter Pakistan and
eliminate dreaded underworld don, Irshad Dilawar. However, somehow, the
Inter-Services Intelligence and Dilawar always seem to be one step ahead of
them, foiling every plan they make. It doesn t take long for Major Imtiaz to
realize that something is amiss the operation has been compromised. Will he be
able to successfully complete his mission, or are he and his men, like
Abhimanyu, entering a trap they cannot make their way out of? Set in the world
of covert operations, where double-crossing and diabolical mind games are the
norm, The Karachi Deception will keep you hooked till the very end.

My Review

commandos assigned a task to assassinate a terrorist in a clandestine mission-
The plot itself magnetically attracts the readers. Inciting inquisitiveness is
the prime quality of a thriller, which, Karachi Deception possesses full
throttle. The chronological order of the narration helps the reader comprehend
the otherwise complicated story.

Major Imtiaz Ahmed, Captain Shamsheer Sulaiman, and Lieutenant Rafiq Mahmood,
who sets out to accomplish the most prestigious mission, have to face unprecedented
surprises and betrayal. Author succeeded in pulling off the story with utmost

Never for a
second does the book gives us the impression of a debut attempt. A glimpse of
David Baldacci and Frederick Forsyth was visible in the framework of the book,
though the narration is comparatively simpler. The twist and turn of events in
the story are maneuvered seamlessly.

character galore in the book is a bit confusing chiefly due to the similarities
in the names. As the story proceeds, readers are acquainted with the names. The
build of the events could have been robust.

As I had
mentioned in my review of Kashmir House, I have an affinity towards stories which incite the Indian emotion in me. Whenever a terrorist is arrested or incarcerated, fed with our tax
amount, like most fellow citizens, I too wished if there were someone who could
eliminate these rotten beings. Hence, the idea of assassinating a terrorist
leader enticed me. This idea gets my special brownie points.

And yes, the twist in the climax is interesting.

for the publisher

of Material Connection: I received this book as a complimentary copy in
exchange for a honest review. I was not required to write a positive review.
The opinions I have expressed are my own.
