My take

Every one of us at one time or other faces a situation wherein we become puppets of others destined to dance to their tunes silently suffering within. This is the theme of this book LET YOU BE MY PUPPET ONCE  by Preetika Mehra an MBA graduate working with an MNC in Chennai.

The plot

There are nearly 74 chapters, some are lengthy ones some are one paged. They carry suitable captions

To name a few

Fuzzy beginning

The Email

IT cell

The tale happens in various places  like Mumbai ,  Pune, Chennai and Kochi and other urban centers in India.. Also in foreign countries like The US.

Karan , an employee of an FMCG company is having Saima, Vdica and Josh as his buddies. While Josh and Saima are in love Karan and Vdica are good friends. Vedica  and Saima works in a bank Josh is associated with a Mumbai-based start-up.

Saima 's   younger  sister Meghna who is pursuing MBBS  is in love with Vasant a fellow aspiring doctor . Once she calls Saima at night from home and she takes a flight to Lucknow . She finds her sister lifeless ,her death by a thousand cuts. An investigation begins.

Karan.s father income tax commissioner was caught in a graft case. Karan doubts Pratap his father’s friend for his wrongdoing.

Kapil son of Chief Minister of UP is arranging a party in his farmhouse.  He and his brother Suraj have invited them to the party. Saima and Vedic attend the same along with Josh and Karan. In the party Zoravar ,Pratap  Natural Resource Minister’s son under the influence of liquor  tries to squeeze the life out of Saima and Vedica

They escape from his clutches and they go to a nearby police station to file an FIR.  The inspector  at the station sends them out without filing the FIR , because the culprits are sons of political bosses.

All the four , Saima , Vedika, Josh and Karan plan to punish the culprits and their tricks and struggles form the rest of the story.

The pro
The story is written in a subtle manner and each character is etched well
This novel is capable of flooring you by the writing style , strong plot line, and social drama with all the emotions to make you cry and contemplate.

The aspirations and attempts of youngsters  who have  got all acumen  and energy would be a   delight to read. When it revolves around  revenge the thrill is amazing as there is a clash of beliefs and reality. 

From the first few pages I get hooked   first into world of guys and their anxieties .Their bond and kinship are awesome. The shrewd and intelligent youth  meet  many dangers, and they use their prudence to outsmart their enemies.

The atrocities of corrupt politicians and greedy rich would shock you and the helplessness of the poor people would move
your heart,The courage and aversion of youngsters which give room to more and more rebellious and revolt against the perpetrators  would surprise you.

It is a story of passion and pain , dreams and debacles vices and virtues.

The characters are real and flawed and you have to love them.

What I feel

The language is mediocre and mundane.It can be improved a lot. The phrase - at the end of the day -comes frequently.Narrative prose could be groomed to a large  extent. 

My verdict

With a gripping climax ,which this fast paced  thriller ends as a cliffhanger, there is all the possibility of sequel fo this book by the authoress. Details after details pour in this book and when all end in place and the enormity of the happenings may give you a great entertainment.

The plot line is appreciable and it does not lack the grip but addictive.

I like the title as well as cover design which are alluring and tempting.They match the intensity and the  theme of the book.

I wish to appreciate the authoress confidence to weave a story
 in with diversification of circumstances  and occasions and she has outdone it.

It is worth a read if you want to try a story with suspense that can scar you.

I recommend this book to all thriller fans. 
The following premises attract my attention.

Intelligent is useful when it is complete and comprehensive,

Somehow the complex web of the world is weaved in such a fashion that they are controlled and made to work for the  politician  and rich business people.

In this digital age, Two things beat us. One fact to face discussions amongst people. Two obscurities of too much data,

The blurb highlights the inability of the Chief of Intelligence to find the difference between the real and planned evidence.

At around 326 pages this book is a fascinating read
This book is a must read book if you are looking for a socio-political thriller with indleible charecters .The social drama is crafted well where usage of new technology is giveen due significance..

My score : 4/5

Disclaimer: I have received the free copy of the book from the authoress and this is my honest and unbiased review
