Stopping A Terrorist

Review of Checkmate; Hrishikesh Joshi; Leadstart Publishing 2015; Rs 150; pp 158

– Shana Susan Ninan

What better way to hijack a plane than to use a judge with a VIP status to smuggle in guns? Three fidayeen from Indian prisoners are the ransom, in return for the hostages. Calling the shots for jihadis from Pakistan is once upon a time right hand man of Osama Bin Laden and now the most dangerous terrorist in the world, Muhammad Zia ul Afridi.

Coming to the rescue is Vikram Roy, chief Secretary of RAW, who finds out there are inside activities in the organisation that he needs to tackle first. Playing his hands at a long term relationship, Vikram is your middle-aged, handsome guy.

The plot is engaging, and for the debut work of a 21-year-old, it’s pretty promising. A few typos and grammatical errors apart, this is a nice read.
