Cold Truth by Nikhil Pradhan


A missing girl. A curious journalist. A terrifying conspiracy.

When 10-year-old Sakshi goes missing from East Delhi, almost no one, including the police seems too concerned. Not until a journalist begins to ask questions. Soon, what started as an innocuous investigation into corruption and systemic apathy begins to reek of a larger and terrifying conspiracy, as chilling secrets and long-dead skeletons tumble out.

Pieced together like a case-file, using police reports, interviews, leaked emails and WhatsApp conversations, COLD TRUTH takes you from the by-lanes of Delhi and the communist bunkers of Russia to the frozen grounds of Antarctica, following a trail that will leave you questioning what is real and what isn’t.

My views

An incredible thriller with drama.

The story of a missing girl,Sakshi. Police trying to find her but there efforts are not enough to find her. A journalist takes up the charge and unfolds an international plot.

The author has done a wonderful job in terms of plot, writing style and language.

Revealing the corruption in government agencies. The story telling by Nikhil in terms of conversations, whatsapp chats, mails is very fresh. The hopping between the places i.e Delhi, Russia, Antartica is smooth and not confusing.

I liked the book because it is fast paced, well written and researched plot, elements of thrill and Originality.
