‘A Reverse Thriller’


From The Back Cover-

Losing their faith in the System, a group of MNC-employed youngsters decide to take revenge on some politicians and businessmen after having suffered at their hands. Their master plan also exposes the connections of the powerful with the rich, of the mafia with politicians and of those who exploited the poor. All this leads to a war. A war that had never happened.

The Chief of Intelligence had never dealt with such brilliant people who were entangling him in multiple versions of events. After a while, he is unable to differentiate between the real and planted evidence. The clock is ticking. The media is on adrenaline.

The Chief is faced with several questions. How did it all happen? Will he be able to solve the case? Can he get the accused politicians acquitted? Should he find an escape for himself amidst the turmoil?

It’s time he found the answers!

“I got the book as a part of the review program in Outset” hyperlinking outset to ”


It is an interesting story of four friends, Karan- Son of an Income Tax Officer, Vedica- Daughter of a Canada as well as USA based businessman, Saima- Daughter of a very powerful Land-Dealer, Josh- Son of an ordinary shopkeeper but an intelligent and clever person and one of the top 10 best hackers in the world. They all worked and lived together in Mumbai- the city of dreams.

Everything was going fine in their life till the mysterious death of the only sister of Saima, Meghna. It was a shock for not only Saima but everybody who knew her. After that, they found some videos which astonished them. There were many dark and guilty secrets revealed in those videos. There was also a shocking bit inside the video which revealed the cause of Meghna’s death.

After watching the videos, all the friends decide to take revenge on those who are guilty. They planned and planned and made many alternative plans to their main plans and also backup plans from them.

Once they execute their plans; police, intelligence and politicians from not only India but from all over the world try to catch them but fail. They turn puppets in their hands.  But it gets a lot more difficult with every second passing- for the authorities to catch them and for them to escape the authorities.

The ending is surprising and unpredictable.


As I mentioned in my headline that it is a Reverse Thriller. In this book, the question is not that if the culprit will be caught or not. but the question is that if the culprit will succeed in escaping the authorities or not.

A mixture of humour and mystery, this book will hold you till the last page and you will want to read even after the end.

A must-read and amazing debut novel from the author, Preetika Mehra.
