Genre: Espionage Thriller
ISBN: 978-93-81836-94-1 
Edition: First, 2015

Platform:
The narration is about hijacking of a plane having hundreds of hostesses. Story begins with the trapped Justice Ramkrishna Shastry who is compelled to follow the terrorists to deceive the country. Rules take place with the hardworking and more dedicated RAW agents Vikram Roy and Abhishek Jha who put their best efforts to save the hijacked lives and catch the terrorist. Story also gives light to the life of these agents that how they manage their personal and professional world.

Strength of the Book:
As the name Checkmate suggests, the story is well planned and written in good manner. Chapters are written separately and connected with each other very cleverly without making balderdash. Writer has shown its best creativity in the work it could be ever in such type of stories. In front of the eyes it visualizes the scene of all the things written. Also, writer has touched each corner which is prerequisite for the story. It gives amazing mindset to the reader and brings to the end with curiosity. Love, passion, strategies, profession all are expressed very well. Dialogue writing is admirable and seems too much real. Book ends with the mind blowing thinking and deep hard work of author.

Weakness of the book:
After taking an appreciable start, story falls down and goes very fast. No much interesting things are added to bind the reader page by page. It could be more effective if more relevant situations were added. Story is not centralized properly over a person and leaves readers to skip couple of pages. Failed attempt of literature is done in the book.

Conclusion:
Author Hrishikesh Joshi has sharply done his work by engaging the readers’ interest with his creativity. Proper negotiation of words is used from first page to end. Story and the knitted platform are really awesome. Conceptualized with real things, this book doesn’t let reader feel the wastage of time. Narration deeply fits with the name Checkmate and hope soon gonna be converted into the blockbuster movie.


Reviewing Point:
