Clear Line of Fire is a fast-paced thriller, with the action unfolding across India,
USA and Russia.
Satyan Sharma, a young entrepreneur, dreams of building a world class software
powerhouse. His company is selected to design the ‘brains’ of high tech artillery
to be produced through collaboration between India and Uzbekistan.
Neither USA nor Russia wants third-world upstarts in the global arms industry.
They deploy their secret services to manipulate corrupt Indian politicians at the
highest level and sabotage the project.
Satyan and his fiancée Rubita, a feisty TV presenter, find themselves in a dangerous
hunt-or-be-hunted game. They use wits and guile to shift the battle to the ground
they are familiar with – the media and India’s corporate circles. The deadly struggle
takes its toll while Satyan and those around him find both physical courage and
moral strength put to extreme tests.
A page-turner, Clear line of fire will keep the readers on the edge making them wonder
as to what Satyan will have to pay to turn the tables against the establishment
in this high-stakes game.
