A surgeon working at a village clinic in India but things take a spooky turn one night when a teacher, his pregnant wife, and their son are brought to the hospital dead. Yet, they tell him that they’ve been given a second chance at life if and only if he’s able to patch them up before sunrise. It’s a tale that’ll have you racing to turn the pages as the surgeon races against the clock.
Promising review: “I absolutely breezed through this book in no time at all. From the description, it sounded more like a dark comedy, but it truly is more of a life or death (no pun intended) thriller from beginning to end. I really didn’t know what to expect going in, but Paralkar paints his pictures so vividly, and sometimes a little too vividly in regards to all of the surgical procedures that take place. He clearly has done his research, but more than that, he knows how to create characters that take on a life of their own, and you feel for each person throughout this novel. I loved that it all took place in one area, which is a thing I also tend to love in films as well. Even though the story is confined to a small space, it never feels that way. It is a tale of the afterlife, human nature, faith, and above all human kindness and what lengths we will go to to save ourselves and those we love. I can’t wait for people to be able to read this, and now I need to get my hands on Paralkar’s other work!” —invaderlinz
