Book Reading and Interactive Session with Mukul Deva

Blowback: Mukul Deva
5th February 2010

‘You can smell the gunpowder. This is the impact of the words of Mukul Deva … the country’s first military thriller writer’ – The Hindu


A warlord in the rugged Tribal Areas of Pakistan pushes his way to the crest of the jihadi wave, seeking to forge an alliance of terror groups to take on the American surge. One of his allies appears to be Pakistan’s ISI. But are they using him to attain their own goals? Or is he using them? And for what?

Facing the brunt of this deadly double game is the spirited Force 22 represented by Iqbal and Tanaz, just back from Pakistan after their search-and-destroy mission to eliminate Salim, who are catapulted into action as lethal intelligence operations begin to unfold. The third in the action thriller series from India’s ‘literary storm trooper’, Blowback will keep you riveted with its tight plotting and heart-stopping pace.
