As they both set their lives to find their identities they again land to the scene of crime – the terminus. The terminus?
The terminus, where a lady was found dead along with some proofs indicating Ayan’s involvement in the crime! He admits he is not the culprit then who is? Is he someone from the duo – Rudra or Rohan? Or somebody else who is setting a plot to trap them all. Trap?

This is an interesting and gripping story about how these two men discover themselves along with different stages of metamorphosing.
The author will bind you with the story right from the very first incident in the story and will never let you leave till the last incident. He successfully creates an aura of confusion and suspision that creates an urge to find replies to unanswered questions such as who is Rudra? Why he cannot recollect from his memory? How will he come back to his daily routine? Who is Rohan? What happened with him after plane crash? Why cannot recollect from his past? How is he going to be back in his life? Who is Ayan? What was he doing at terminus? Why is he being convicted with the crime, which he by any means, has not attempted? And who this dead lady was?
Questions are many but answer is one – go secure a copy for you and digg the answers.
The characterization is so much strong that you are able to visualize every single character, standing tall in front of your own eyes. The descriptions are so vivid that they will not wash off from your memories fastly. You will be carried along with the characters.
The one-liners are the ‘kick -elements’ of the book. They will pull you from the last chapter and push you into the next one with a stronger urge to continue with more and you will say – let it come; I need more!!!
The dilemmas of a man searching himself are very well written. The pain of loosing all past contacts is depicted decently. Not only emotional but professional details are very intricately planted within the story. This is what keeps it alive within your heart, much after completing the book.
The crime scene investigations were ming boggling and enriching at the same time. It made me feel as if I was the investigating officer.
A recommended book. 🙂 I admit that after reading this book, I am more inclined towards reading more thriller stories. Do I need to mention them to be fictional ? Seems, my blood is infected, after having read the book – I am metamorphing…
