Book Review: The Girl Who Loved a Pirate

The Girl Who Loved the Pirate

Blurb: The ‘Pirate of the World’ is locked up in a high-security jail in Malaysia. He is desperate to reunite with Dao-Ming, his girlfriend.
Andy Karan, an undercover spy from India’s top-secret organization, ‘The List’, is on a mission to find his colleague’s murderer in Goa. He has a plan for the pirate. A plan that will kill two birds with one stone.
Their playground is the high seas off the Indian coast. With the all-too-common rave parties in Goa, a new drug called ‘magic’ is altering the inter-gang dynamics.
But can Andy trust the pirate? Or his own instincts in an unfamiliar terrain?

My Review:

Andy Karan, an investigative journalist and an undercover agent belonging to India’s secret agency called ‘The List’, takes you with him through this book on an unforgettable adventure that plays out in Goa, Malacca, to the crime filled interiors of the drug mafia and the intriguing world of the Pirate of the world, Ba-Qat.

The author has weaved a memorable love story too into this action thriller between the beautiful Dao-Ming and iron-willed pirate Ba-Qat.

The prologue and the Epilogue gives a different touch to the writing style and throws light upon the character of Andy Karan and the backstory of Ba-Qat respectively.

‘The Girl who loved the Pirate’ is filled with action sequences. The part I liked most was where Ba-Qat captures the North Korean ship. The details the author has included makes sure you will have bitten off half your nails by the time you reach the end of the sequence.

The language is simple and hence the book is an easy read. The depth in the details is proof of the research that must have gone into the writing of this book.

The book takes a bit of time to capture your attention initially, but once it does, it races to the finish line without a hiccup and you turn the last page with the satisfaction of having spent time reading something wonderful. 

Recommended to all thriller lovers.

Rating: 4/5
