Fire has no shadow by Rizvan Saiyed
It’s a thriller. I loved the way the story was narrated. It keeps you fixated until the end. Kudos to the writer. The only point amiss was the start of the book. It’s a bit slow and difficult to connect the flow but later it catches pace and you keep going. It is available on…
