My review: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ/5

Randhir Kamat is the CEO of Un-social Bastards(USB), which is the next big thing in the field of entertainment in Youtube. Randhir has completed his MBA from IIM and started the youtube channel producing short films along with his friend Devendra. Everything is going well and they are about to sign a contract with Shahrukh Khanโ€™s Red Chillies for their next web series when a certain turn of events lead to the destruction of USB. Randhir starts getting vulgar and offensive messages from a stalker named Deepali who seems to be obsessed with Randhir. Though initially he ignores thinking that he will gain some publicity but the matter goes out of control when his girlfriend Rupali starts getting death threats. His nemesis Mayank from Natak Company tries to take full advantage of the situation but unfortunately becomes trapped in the circle of threats. One after another incident leads Randhir to approach the police. Soon various photos are leaked which shatters Randhirโ€™s reputation. When the truth starts to unfold it leaves u shocked and disturbed. Is Deepali really the culprit? Or is someone else the mastermind behind USBโ€™s fall?

The book is an intriguing read with a gripping plot and a storyline full of suspense. The language used is easy and can be finished in a single sitting. Despite being a short and quick read the story is impactful and keeps you guessing till the end. The writing style is beautiful and the way the author has weaves the suspense is really commendable. You may feel you know the culprit but the climax will leave you awestruck. But as a regular reader of mystery and thriller I kind of guessed who was behind all the chaos. Overall I loved the book and I highly recommend it to the lovers of mystery out there.
