Operation Hellfire is a riveting narrative of India's battle against terrorism. The plot centres on a terror attack orchestrated by ISI, targeting India in an attempt to surpass the horrors of the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Yet, India's robust intelligence surveillance and meticulous planning prove instrumental in thwarting ISI's sinister scheme. The book spans approximately 170 pages and is packed with action and thrills, so I won't delve into the plot to avoid spoilers.
The entire narrative is skillfully written in clear and appreciated language. The extensive list of characters can be challenging to keep track of at times, yet each character fulfils a distinct role, which is a positive aspect. At times, it contained excessive, unnecessary information that made reading feel a bit tedious. However, the meticulous description of every event overall lends an adventurous and imaginative quality to the narrative.
It was a moderately satisfying read for me. A change in genre from my usual reading choices made this book an intriguing read. Although the narration is good, it has its moments. Despite being acceptable, the narration was sometimes confusing, and the author provided an excessive amount of detail. As there were a lot of characters in the story, it was difficult to distinguish who each was and what their roles were.
If you have a penchant for military action, and stories involving RAW, Indian secret agencies, and army operations, this book is definitely worth your time. You should already be familiar with numerous military operation terms. It's a short, fast-paced read. However, if you prefer other fiction genres, you might want to skip this one.
