Hemanth says…

Hemanth Gorur, author of Aymaran Shadow, posted a 5 star review of Agency Rules – Never an Easy Day at the Office. He says:

“This is an out-and-out spy thriller and anti-terrorist narrative rolled into one. It’s hobbled by a slow start, although there is good reason for that, as I found out when I reached the subsequent chapters. In retrospect, the opening was necessary in its current form to give context to the rest of the story in more ways than one. As you delve into the rest of the narrative, it slowly becomes apparent that the author has taken on a complex plot and done an outstanding job of giving it a hue that’s rarely seen in books of this genre.

The writing is fluid and uses language that instantly gives the story the mood and the texture reminiscent of good spy thrillers. Khalid handles with ease the difficult task of painting the complex dynamics between various agencies and organizations in Pakistan that deal with covert operations and national security. One scene that really stands out in my mind is the ingenious way in which Kamal, the protagonist and an undercover operative, extracts information from a hostile captive without resorting to any of the cliched torture methods. This is one book you’ll want to make space for on your bookshelf.”
