Review: Checkmate

Checkmate Checkmate by Varun T.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

According to Oxford dictionary Checkmate is “A position in which a player's king is directly attacked by an opponent's piece or pawn and has no possible move to escape the check. The attacking player thus wins the game.”

This is the second book of author which I read. First was the “The last chai”. This is markedly better than the last one. The characters are repeated from the last book and some are new additions. Though it is not necessary to read the book in order but it is recommended.

The story moves far and wide n the globe. India, china, USA, Israel, middle east, Japan, North Korea etc all are involved in in capacity or other. USA and North Korea are on a brink of a nuclear war. Dalai Lama, supreme leader of Tibet has endorsed China and this is a huge setback to India. How will the Indian PM, Doshi tackle this?

The book has some interesting theories and details of espionage and media. The expanse is as big as possible and there lies the problem. The book goes hay wire after initial thrust. Still it is a once time read with good pace. 3/ 5 stars.
