My Review –
The another great work by Nikhil Mahajan. The romance crime thriller suspense story, really catchy indeed. The 3 stories which are linked to each other running parallelly throughout the book makes the story really engaging. Very intriguing story plot, presented very well. The cover is catchy and the title “white smoke- The missing shimla girl” is also looks very appealing. The suspense revealed at the end is unimaginable. The story manifests today’s scenario of crime world, criminals and bribe. The story kept me hold to the last page. The book left me confused and guessing the story as the last event took place when the virat got a call from the dead one. Now I can say that it’s horror too. There is lots of surprising elements which made the book really interesting.
