A gripping thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat...
Topography and history of the city, kidnapping, violence, and terrorism, all woven into a fast-paced narrative. Set in Kashmir, Close Call in Kashmir beautifully weaves in the topography of the state.
Terrorist violence and a nightmare drive Shamsuddin Bandey, head priest of a shrine in Aishmuqam village in Jammu and Kashmir, is sent to find out more about some of the 300-year-old scrolls kept in his family's custody for generations. But his actions arouse the suspicions of a top bureaucrat and a history professor. The corrupt duo believe the scrolls may point the way to a vast, buried treasure and they will stop at nothing to get it. Elsewhere, militants break into a museum in Srinagar and steal valuable artefacts to fund their war against India. They also kidnap a woman scientist. Along the way, others are drawn into the action: Michael Zutshi, an American professor nostalgic about his childhood spent in Kashmir, and Ashok Dalela, a CBI officer on the trail of the masterminds behind the illegal trade in antiques.
