    Almost everything in this tale comes along in such a way that the word Cliche pales in comparison. Nuff said !

    Re-read the book for the umpteenth time and still managed to like it. It is probably one of the best thrillers ever written in India by an Indian. Shashi Warrier is excellent at etching out characters and in progressing the story through the thoughts of the protagonist rather than the dialogues. That is what would make it really difficult to convert it into a script - I wish someone like Kabir Kaushik could do it. For those who do not know Kabir Kaushik should see "seher" and "chamku".

    The plot has lot of clichés, given that the premise was good, but it seemed author wanted stuff lot of sub-plots together. Also, in some cases there was no coherence. The climax at the end was too simple and melodramatic

    I liked 'Sniper' by the same author more than 'Krait' The book is full of cliches and the unconnected episodes fail to grip. The final attack on the Krait's HQ makes him look like a bumbling amateur. A disappointing read.

    This is probably my first thriller set in India by an Indian author. Enjoyed reading it. The story moves along in a nice pace.
