Fear Is the Key – by Juggi Bhasin



A bitter winter wind blowing outside spoke to me. There was no one else. And then it struck me. She might have truly disappeared! Sometimes, you get a sense of these things . . .’

It’s been one hell of a tough week at Yummimages, a digital infotainment site, with controversies seeping into the politicking within the office. To calm things down, Rahul, the founder, plans a party at his home. His goal is to set things right between his fiancée-to-be, Simone, and his business partner and close friend, Suhel. With the party in full swing it’s time for Rahul to have ‘the talk’, but suddenly Simone is nowhere to be found.

As all investigations come to naught, Rahul takes matters into his own hands and soon has a few suspects lined up. It’s just a matter of time before he knows the truth. But reality can be so twisted, so bizarre, so utterly unbelievable . . .

This book, by the creator of Agent Rana, will continue to give you chills long after you have read it.



Starting of with the cover it is really intriguing giving more power to the title’fear’.  The colours do the wonder to bring out the fear. The story revolves around rahul, suhel and simone who goes missing at the party. The title is riveting. After reading the blurb you do want to know what the story is all about. The book starts off good and gets a bit confusing towards the middle. Too many twists are there in the book which makes it more interesting to read. It is a little long read.Characterization has been done well. The story could have much better flow. You might think the book is about finding simone which instead leads to a truth which is rather really huge. The language used is easy. Plot is good. The author has written with alot of research and keeping all the characters intact all the time. The book is mediumly paced. Friendship, romance, psychology, revenge all the themes are used. The ending leaves you with goosebumps. The imagery formed by the author is a tremendous job done with ease. Book filled with suspense and thrill. A good book.

Overall -4/5.
