Siddharth Rana, the Joint Director of the IB, is at his wits’ end attempting to unravel that mystery. Working with the blindest of clues, Siddharth has to race against time to prevent terrorists from
achieving their horrific goal–an India laid low by acatastrophe of biblical proportions.
This is a story that leaps across continents, gets to the heart of convoluted terrorist plots and attacks, and amazes you with its exposition of high-tech gadgetry and science. It is equally a story of
breathtaking bravery, recounted at a mind-blowing pace. At its core, it is also a story about the beauty of relationships. Relationships that are beyond national boundaries and historic enmities…
- Plot. (Fantastic)
- Thoroughly researched and detailed explanation of events.
- Making out of a fiction from the core of real events.
- Different approach to see the act of terrorism.
- Writing style could have been better.
- Technical stuffs can faint a person for a while who is not from the science background.
From the first look at the novel, it doesn’t reveals anything about the plot but when I’ll tell you that the plot is basically about a terrorist group attacking an Indian Dam using the ‘Resonance’ effect that we read in basic physics, then the book cover looks perfect.
As the author is basically working for IRS, we can expect a lot from him over this kind of genre and the same got delivered by Ajay. His professional background gives him the knowledge of the working of different secret agencies of the world and hence he proves to be a perfect person to be writing over this thrilling and eventful plot.
The story of the book basically revolves around the al Quida and their plan to destroy India by attacking a huge dam of India. Aban, a pakistani boy, who somehow got caught as a suspect of Mumbai attacks at Taj Hotel, is having a valuable breakthorugh over this plan and extends his support to Siddharth Rana, the Joint Director of the IB. The Plan is the most deadliest plan ever made and so is the investigation by the international agencies to stop the massacre. The doomsday would be bought up by a basic effect of physics called ‘Resonance’.
Story line and the plot is fantastic, the only thing which I felt was lacking was the writing style of Ajay. I felt that dialogues were missing the charm and everything was looking a bit dramatic, the soul was missing. But overall it is the best terrorism novel I have ever read by an Indian author.
The best part of the novel, according to me was the climax. It was totally unexpected and took the reader totally offgaurd.
Resonance is like a bombshell of thrill for the reader who love to read these genre. I would surely recommend this book.
