My fascination for thrill and mystery is what drove me to read and review Beyond Secrets by Alka Dimri Saklani. The very title of the book promised a journey full of multiple layers if suspense and the well designed cover page just further established this fact beyond any doubt. As I started reading the book I knew that I was not wrong as it provided a complete package of great thrill, romance and entertainment within its 235 pages.
Beyond secrets narrates the tale of Neol, Nidhi and Appu, three complete strangers who are united by fate to act as the pawns in its game where they end up hurting each other unintentionally. At the centre of all the action is Ashiyana, an orphanage where sweet and innocent Appu lives without being aware of the cruelties of the outer world. Then there is Neol, a counselor, who volunteers at the orphanage putting his career at risk. Nidhi is an engineering student, whose seemingly calm exterior hides a broken girl seeking answers to various questions. As the paths of these three individuals, from completely different backgrounds, intertwine, they are little aware of the fact that their journey together will cause an irreversible change in their lives.
Beyond Secrets is an exceptionally well written book and Alka deserves all the praise for her ability to maintain the suspense and thrill of the story till the very end. The character development is really good and all the events of the plot are well synchronized making it an extremely interesting book to read. The realistic approach towards story narration combined with its fast pace makes the book a page turner in the true sense. In fact, I found myself glued till I had reached the end and even then I wanted to read it immediately one more time. I wish Alka great success for this book and others to follow.
