Ron Jogani, a jeweller from Mumbai, is in Belgium to buy a consignment of loose diamonds worth over €10 million. Hours later he's dead in his hotel room in Brussels: murdered. The perpetrators are extremely tech-savvy and have defeated all the CCTV cameras in the hotel... but one concealed camera in the elevator has snapped one of the guys. When one of the stolen diamonds is sold in Mumbai, the Belgian Police reach out to their Indian counterparts to catch the person in the candid-shot.
The case is assigned to DCP Rita Ferreira. But when Rita and her team track down the man in the photograph provided by the Belgians, they realise there must have been some slip-up: the target does not even have a passport - he couldn't have travelled to Brussels. And then they discover that a private detective is already following their target...
Vish Dhamija is back again with his Rita Ferreira thriller. The plot cannot be counted as unique but with crisp narration and fast paced suspense, author succeeded in pinning the audience to the book. The pace of the story drops in between and again comes back on track towards the end.
The cover image provide an eerie feeling the murder. There are some loose links in the plot. Author has covered up the cons with his style of narration. The title of the book justifies the plot.
