Book Review: The 1st Assassin: A Unit 22 Thriller

Genre: Thriller

Blurb: I once worked for the government, going into missions that never officially happened, killing enemies we never officially killed. They gave me a bunch of medals, partly for doing my job well, mostly to keep my mouth shut.

I still work for the government, but now I ride a desk, barely tolerated by my boss, barely tolerating myself. My world is turned upside down when I am put on a task force investigating an assassination plot against the US President.

Nothing is as it seems, the enemy always seems to be one step ahead of us, and I must keep myself and those I care about alive long enough to get to the bottom of this conspiracy.

My Opinion: Woah! In my opinion this the best thriller I read in a while. I was in reading slump and I was wanting to read something that will re ignite my love for reading and this is the book which got me into reading again. It’s futuristic, boom bashing and admirably a block buster read for me.

Good and Bad: Really appreciate the writing, the thrill that was maintained, the moments that turned the story upside down are my favourite and, author Mainak has a thing in his writing and knows how to suprise his readers.

My favorites from the book: My favourite character is Adi, I was glued to see what he does in those created situations and I’m truly fan gurling now!!

Target Audience: 14+ onwards will enjoy it. A book that got me spy comic vibes too.

What to expect: Great plot, unpredictable storyline and well built suspense.

Final verdict: I will whole heatedly suggest to all my fellow book lovers and friends.

Rating: 5 /5
