Published by Gyan Sagar Publications in paperback format, the novel You Will Die by Shiv Kumar is a multi-layered mesmeric thriller that brims with detectives, cops, high-adrenaline espionage and political drama, and romance in snatches.
The story is mainly staged against India, with locations like Patna, Siwan, and a village named Mohanpur. Many characters from both sides, good and bad, frequently visit these places to find out their clues and to complete trails. At the story front, it’s more like a political thriller, involving Indo-Pak chilling rivalry. A terrorist outfit named Tehreek-I-Azadi led by Abrahim plans and plots to kill the Indian PM, Sunil Mishra. The first attempt at a hydro power project couldn’t materialize.
As the novel opens up layer after layer, the mystery behind conspiracies and revenge unfurls in a jaw-dropping engrossing manner. Before one suspense is bursted, something different throws readers in a loop of surprise. The lead characters are Abhay Singh and Raghav. The former is a security advisor of PM and the latter is a convict turned secret agent for the Indian government. When the plot is related to the safety of prime minister, it is likely that many internal and external operations are bound to get exposed.
The narrative of the novel reads like a show on NetFlix. Abhay and Raghav were once part of the same operation named ‘Budha’. However, post its success, they parted and much changed with all agents. How did they come again – is another saga altogether. Overall, the novel is a nail-biting thriller with a long cast of characters.
