Just when Nidhi Kapoor, a leading Bollywood actress, was to start shooting for her much anticipated film, unwarranted incidents start to happen around her. Her pets are found maimed in her very home. An anonymous letter threatening her and her family is discovered in her study.

The high-profile case forces ACP Prakash Mohile to lead the investigation himself. Rujuta Singh, a photojournalist shadowing Prakash for a project, gets embroiled in the case.

Despite intervention by the police, attacks continue to mount on Nidhi and the unknown assailant gets bolder and more vicious with each attack. The assailant is adamant on taking away from Nidhi everything that she holds dear – her career, her home, her reputation, her family and her life.

In absence of any clues or motives, Prakash and Rujuta are forced to dig deeper in the past of the Kapoors and they uncover a violent tale of lies, betrayal, treachery, infidelity and murder. A tale that the Kapoors want to guard at any cost.

Who is the unknown attacker? Why is Nidhi Kapoor a target? What are the Kapoors hiding from the world?

And, can Prakash and Rujuta save Nidhi?

What I liked about the Book-

The story is nice and very tightly woven. It has all the ingredients of a good novel - Suspense, mystery, love, hatred, thrill, revenge, pain and strong and real characters. As the story unfolds, the book draws you into its pages and you begin the roller-coaster ride with the characters. The emotions the characters, Nishant, Nidhi, Payal, Rujuta and Prakash display makes you identify with them in many ways. The language is simple to understand and the little details that talk about Mumbai; the food there, the culture and the life in Bollywood makes the book interesting even to people who have never visited the city. The way the author has included some bold scenes and woven them well into the novel makes you realize that he is good at his work!

What I did not like - 

Well! As you can see I liked most of the things about the book; of course there are a few things that did not work for me. One thing is that the first chapter dragged on as there were too many details involved. Another thing that caught me unawares was the first murder, yes, the detailing was good, but for a sensitive person like me, it was way too much. The scene where one of the characters was so brutally treated and no one came to her aid was something that was hard for me to believe!

All in all, The Nidhi Kapoor Story is a good read. As a reviewer, I would say that Saurabh Garg is here to stay and create a name for himself in the writing world. As a fellow writer, I wish him all the best for his future endeavors!
