FIFTEEN MOVES AHEAD by DEVADEEP GUPTA

 



BOOK REVIEW: 4.5 stars out of five. 

Fifteen Moves Ahead” by Devadeep Gupta is an intriguing psychological thriller that will keep you on edge till the end. The author has used the game of chess as the main theme and cleverly built an interesting thriller around it. Chess is all about mind games, with each player trying to anticipate the next move of the opponent. Imagine the blood bath on the chess board where one player is a methodical champion of logic who has never lost a game and the other player is a girl who is a gifted creative genius, a new rising star in the world of chess. The present champion has issues dealing with his dark past, while the new girl has her own problems. Who will win in this battle of wits, the current arrogant champion or the new girl with a creative gift?

The story is fast-paced and interesting to read. The author did a commendable job of describing the players' thoughts, making the reader visualize the inner workings of the genius minds. His usage of the pronouns ‘HE’ and ‘SHE’ to address the main characters, instead of using nouns, has created a sense of mystery around the characters. The prologue is beautifully written and anyone that reads the prologue would immediately feel the urge to read this book. I would recommend this book to all those readers who are looking for something unique and interesting. I am looking forward to reading the sequel as soon as possible.
