Synopsis

Do you remember your dreams? Do you know what they’re trying to tell you?

I Rohan Bhatia, 25, never remembered my dreams. Never. That changed one day.

That one day I remembered my dream. For the next 91 days I dreamt & I remembered. I finally realized all those dreams were One. One Dream – One Story. It was not a pretty one.

In my protracted dream I was ushered into the lives of three people. Vikram Pratap Rana, Siddharth Choudhary & Kajal Rathore. I was with them everywhere they went, everything they did. And I felt everything they felt.

They couldn’t see me, even as I stuck with them like their shadow.

Diplomat & drop-dead sexy Kanchan Trivedi is dead. Her house is burnt to the ground. But the killer has left no evidence. He never does. He is Vikram Pratap Rana. He is cold, he is broken, he feels nothing. He’s a killer. But he wasn’t always like this. He was once in love with her & she loved him madly.

Siddharth Choudhary’s parents died when he was young. They left him with millions to spend. But he didn't care. He was a Rockstar with a dream to change the world. And he doesn’t care if people get killed. “Gotta do what you gotta do.”

Kajal Rathore wasn’t born with that name. She was a prodigy, an exceptionally gifted individual. It all changed when she fell in love. She married him. Then she killed him.

These three enigmas collide. They embark on mission impossible. The killings begin to pile. They call it “Collateral Damage” & they don’t give a shit.

Hi Gaurav,
I don't know why but 'The Call of Cthulhu' by HP Lovecraft, the Hindi movie called '100 Days', the English movie called 'Inception' and brilliant, subtle and self-deprecating humour hit me all at once. I wish I could weave in and out of the myriad notes and embed them into a fresh plot like this. Well done, mate. I look forward to reading more. All the best.

Warm regards
Sudhansu

This was one of the best books I've read on this website so far. The author has taken effort and created multiple layers of narrative - love the idea of the "story within the unbelievable dream." He has taken the pains to edit and make grammatically perfect, whatever he has decided to share, and the effort shows. The character of Vikram Pratap Rana totally endears with his irreverence. The writer is good, and certainly as a reader I do want to read more and would love to see the book published. :) Well done!

The story line is too ludicrous.

Decent - but with scope to improve. Hats off for starting off at least. Story line is a bit heavy but at least I don't have to sit with a dictionary to figure out the meaning of the words. All the best.

An engaging read from beginning. Amazingly written. Loved the narration through the eye of the person who is in his dreams. The character of Vikram Rana Pratap seems bizzare, but interesting at the same time. Would like to read the rest of the story too.

There are some books that captivate you as a reader, momentarily distracting you; and then there are those one in a zillion books that end up sucking you in, like a whirlpool, forcing you to lose yourself to it and become one with it, words running like blood through your blood vessels and simultaneously sucking the wind out of your alveoli! This book felt like the latter. The beginning as well as the plot seems to be the byproduct of extensive out of the box thinking. The clever word-play, satire and metaphors intensify the thrill and suspense of it all, leaving you on the edge of your seat at all times. I would definitely love to read more. Qualifies to be in the ‘can’t-put-down’ category; you don’t want to finish it because it’s so good but at the same time, you want to because the suspense claws at the very core of your existence. Brilliant!
P.S: If people are looking for something to read ‘at one go’, they should read Aesop’s fables/Tinkle/Chandamama/Champak instead of attempting to read good literature like this book.

The whole idea of this book came to me one drunken {very very drunken} night. I think I saw God or was it the legendary ramu chacha, the old as fossil gatekeeper with a lantern from the ramsay-shamsay-aaram-aaramsay-brothers-famed-sensual-horror-films. Who the F#$% knows. Anyway this God/Ramu Chacha changed my life that night. Killers was born that night.

The book has an interesting premise. Would love to see where the author takes it from here. The author has written in a very distinct style and has not tried to copy or dumb down the narrative like a reviewer has suggested below. Strong characters make this story worthwhile.

I got bored mid-way of writing this book & commissioned CB-doppelganger to write the rest of it. That's why I recommend skip the first half & read the second. It will change your life. I'm clearly f%^&ing with you :)

I would definitely like to read further!!! The descriptions at various instances gave me the shivers! Racy, chilling- the suspense builds up to nail-biting anxiety. Who says this cant be read at one go?!

So whenever your feeling down or you seem to get depressed and you would basically want to kill yourself is the right time to read this book which i guess tries to build hope in you . I recently had that very Suicidal Moment! so i came across this book and it seemed to connect with me during the first chapter and understand my pain. However the story is fast and it keeps you intrigued till the end. I would like to read more of it. However one suggestion try to convert into a script as this story seems apt for it and if you try thinking of making it into a script and make a movie then do have some cool directors on your side as this can be the best thing which can happen. I would personally consider it to work on it a little bit in the beginning as the story seemed like a rough draft but i guess i can only find out when the whole book is out.. All the best Mate! nicely done.

Sesha. I'm now officially dead. i died after writing this book. But guess what, God sees me & says to his lackeys: Send this basterd back to wherever the F you got him from. And yeah I'm back & writing even worse books. I'm here to torture you all & specially you: Sesha (Be afraid, Be very Afraid)

the storyline although good is too heavy. it cannot be read at one go which most readers of today want. the author has tried to write in the same vein as some of the Booker prized authors, although the story may have a lot of potential and twists and turns I would not be able take it in more than the preview pages.
