This is the first Espionage thriller I read. I found the characters and the mode of writing really good.
However, the one thing that I expected the book to be and didn’t find happening was the pace! or may be it was just me!
It got heavy halfway through the read and by the time i finished it, I felt it was loaded with information which was a bit avoidable. The editors could have had a bit better job.
In short, Baramulla Bomber is a good read. It gives you the adrenal rush at few places.. There are moments you’d wait with a bated breath onto what happens next……..
A good read for anyone who likes spy novels and thriller stories.
