The Child Of Misfortune

“Chess first of all teaches you to be objective.” – Alexander Alekhine


We have 10 copies of ‘The Child Of Misfortune’, up for review!

Overview of the book:

“Amar and Jonah played chess in childhood before a series of events ripped their friendship apart. Now, they’ve grown up and find themselves challenging each other again – a dangerous game of chess with extremely high stakes involving their lives and the lives of millions of people – a game that takes them on an audacious journey from the valleys of Kashmir to the corporate houses of London. Who will survive and who will win?”

The book is a geopolitical thriller that takes places across various geographies and explores the concept of terrorism financing. The Child of Misfortune ventures into unchartered territories in writing – be it the conflict in frozen Siachen or the misuse of Offshore Financial Centres. The story aims at providing groundbreaking insight into these matters through a fast-paced, action-adventure narrative.

  1. I know I keep bugging you for books from London. But starting next week, I’m back in India for a while. Hope I get to review! 🙂
