For full review please visit writing is very crisp and engaging Though this belongs to the genre of non fiction it still has a story telling feel to it which makes this one a real page turner The book is very well structured The book is heavily inundated with facts, actual court proceedings conversations and judges verdict which make one feel as if we are witnessing the proceedings and investigation on our own.The book starts by unfurling the horror of the train blast of 7 11 in Mumbai Mumbai local train the very lifeline of Mumbai becomes the site of the terror attacks with its effects on lives unprecedented and life long Post this devastating attacks the Anti Terrorism Squad starts its investigation and they have a first breakthrough with the arrest of Kamal Ansari As the investigations proceed a series of blast again rocks Malegaon Meanwhile, the ATS makes arrest in the 7 11 case and finally in a press conference announce that the case is solved with the arrest of twelve people.Ambiguity starts when the facts in the charge sheet are a little different from the facts pointed out during the press conference The book then majorly deals with the proceedings of the accused in the court while at the same time it delves into the minds of these home grown terrorists from the inception when this terror strike was planned ATS claims that the group behind the terror strikes is LET As the court proceedings continue a web of confusion surrounds it as the accused who had previously accepted the charges against them now claim that they were forced to do so There are complaints of gruesome torture of the accused Meanwhile, the Mumbai Crime Branch in its investigation brings a whole new dimension to this case which runs contrary to that of ATS.
