Sniper's Eye by Mainak Dhar

The Blurb: 

I was out on a date. Everything was perfect… Till that shot… a high-calibre one, no apparent sound. And, the man in front of me fell. A rifle with a suppressor? A sniper in the middle of a Mumbai mall? As the body count mounted, I was soon sucked deeper into the chaos unleashed by that shot. To survive and save those whom I care about, I have to become the man I left behind. I have no choice but to tap into a bloody past that has put me on the terror kill list. I may also have no option but to join hands with the sniper terrorising Mumbai. The problem is that the man has sworn to kill me. In a world where the young and poor kill and die in conflicts started by the old and rich, I and my unlikely companion finally discover the thin line that separates a mere killer from a hero. This is our story…

The Story: 

The story starts with Aditya an ordinary person working in the company GRS international. Even though not being a social person, he gets close to his colleagues Zoya. Zoya finds him interesting and thus a crush develops as they started spending time together. 

Later one day they planned to go to the mall to watch a movie but they didn't know or had any clue about the day, that was going to turn up to be the worse day of their lives. 

As they were in the mall out of blue an incident happens and a person is shot to death in front of Aditya. Being shocked he tries to verify what actually happened, and after a moment starts to find out from where the shot was done. After realizing from where the bullet came Aditya finds the person who killed that man with the sniper. In order to catch him, Aditya ends up killing the man and in that instant police assume him guilty and arrests him for killings. 

After being arrested the police start to tortured him, for answers and after a few hours of investigation, the police came to the conclusion that Aditya is in fact, telling the truth and he is not the killer. 

After releasing from police custody he had no idea that his life was changed and he will be called a hero. Television & Media started appeasing him and reveals his past which he never wanted to share, and never thought that it would surface like this. 

There was a serious reason that Aditya had been hiding his past for so many years. It was to protect the people living around him and didn't wanted them to be in danger. But now he wants to clear his record & save the love of his life; Zoya. 

So who is Aditya? What is his past? What would be his next step? Will he join the police force by ignoring his past? How this will end? 

My Take: 

Sniper's Eye-One shot, One kill is the first book in the Seven series, written by Mainak Dhar. 

The story starts with a bang just like in any movies & it will hook you up till the end. I loved Aditya's character who is so powerful and ready to do anything for the country. As I read this story I found myself connected to it on a personal level and could feel all the emotions that author Mainak Dhar has expressed. 

Mainak Dhar has given us a brilliant piece of story to read that is not only interesting but also has an attention-seeking story-line. The book is written in simple English and inflow, making the story more attractive and likable. 

This story also gives us a reality check, that trust no one but yourself & fight for yourself. Also if you want to change your surroundings you should be one to start it. 

The highlight of the book is that the story is filled with surprises, twists, and heroes and villains along with the moral values. Also, I loved the continuity of the storyline and I am really excited to read the second book Sniper’s Debt next. 

Overall, I liked this book and would recommend others to read this series as well. So if you are looking for an impressive book that has story-based on responsibility towards our country and his fellow people then click here and read now the 1st book in the seven series with Sniper's Eye written by Mainak Dhar.
