This is the second novel by author, Sathya Sam (Prof. Sathya Saminadan R S, faculty of Marketing in IFMR GSB at Krea University) and he is already a star author with two best sellers in his kitty.
The Deception Moment is a suspenseful thriller. It takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of twists and turns, with the protagonist Devavrat Deshpande at the centre stage that leave the readers fascinated with ‘what next’.
Two weeks of the release and the book has already received rave reviews from readers in online platforms. The epic plot revolves around a retired RAW officer ‘Devavrat Deshpande’ who turns out to be a ruthless professional on a mission while struggling with his personal state of depression.
The innovative and stimulating to read reflects the in-depth research that the author has done on the subject areas including human cloning and time-travel.
“Apart from being exciting to science enthusiasts reading fiction, the book engages well with three different time zones and especially for those who have experience of two time periods and read a lot about modern life. The book is for all ages as it brings emotion, thrill, and care for values and beliefs” , writes N.Chandrasekaran in one of the reviews.
Another reader, Shruti states, “There are 300 pages of good twists and turns that keep you hooked on the edge. The story somehow travels from time to time forward and backward.”
The unexpected turns kept me guessing until the very end. The book synopsis does not give credit to the true nature of the narrative.
Will Devavrat be able to complete the task despite encounters with bizarre situations and unanticipated surprises, along with his own personal tragedy accompanied by a mental and emotional battle? That all changed for me when I finished the book, and it was as if every burden that weighed on my shoulders had been lifted.
The author’s storytelling style has been concise. The descriptions, especially in suspenseful sequences, were my favourite. The book’s language is simple enough for everyone to grasp.This is the book to read if you want to read a variety of genres at once.
I have to say that the characters are all well-rounded. The story is compelling, and the cover is striking. I will be waiting for his next release. As soon as I read the summary of “The Deception Moment”, my interest level was immediately pumped up. I was drawn to the simple truth of who could really be the “most deceived” person. It included a blend of mystery thriller, epic romance, heartbreak, coupled with a significant sci-fi twist. Book is priced at Rs. 260.00 for paperback and Rs. 194 for Kindle edition.
