I’m here with a book review and today up for TBF is Control : The Treacherous Moon by Tushar Janjalkar from Omji Publishing House.
What would happen if suddenly, renowned scientists were mysteriously killed and a top secret machine that could control brain waves goes missing? When John from the NYPD is roped in to an investigation of missing scientists and fatal attacks on the ones left, he doesn’t know that he is in for a shock, professionally as well as personally. He feels himself falling for one of the suspects of the case, Dr. Disha and his best freind and college, Alex can’t help but feel that Disha is withholding important information, something John is totally oblivious to. What is Disha hiding? Who does she sneak off to talk to in the midle of the night? Why does every attack fall on a full moon night? Will John be able to find out the truth, solve the mystery and still keep his feelings intact?
The plot has been set in New York and it’s constant bounce from India to N. Y. Is an easy transition instead of baffling the reader. The characters are not only well written but they are quite well defined and thought of in depth and that reflects in the chemistry portrayed. The plot keeps you engaged and on the edge of your seat until the very end which was a big plus point. If you have read quite a lot of sci-Fi thrillers, it will be easy to follow the clues and kinda find out before the suspense unravels but it’s the whole story as a package that makes it so different.
The only downside of the book was the font. I mean, not only was it tiny but it was so faint that you had to strain your eyes and that put me off. The printing errors were abundant with letters in spaces which I guess must be due to font size, again.
My overall rating for this one is 🌟🌟🌟.5/5 .
Some grammatical mistakes and repetitive descriptives are often found here and there but that could have easily been overcome had the tailoring of the plot been better. As a debut author, Tushar Janjalkar has kicked off his writing career with an absolute stunner of a book. His writing style is gripping and I’m looking forward to reading more from him in the future!
Until next time!
