My Review

Mysterious title, mysterious cover image and a different plot. There are a lot pf different plots coming together in a single story. From the title I was expecting yet another boy meets girl love story. But once involved in the plot, the thrilling cliffhanger caught my interest. The various plots are interwoven seamlessly. Character craft is good.
The narration is exemplary. 
Murder, drug mafia, media, romance and what not. A multiplicity of genres. Author proves that it is not necessary to write passages on love to pull off a love story. Love is not to be shown but felt. Author portrays the love through silence. A different read.
