Game of Anarchy: Race Against Time – Kenneth Jones

(Reviewed by Ishita RC)

Rita has created a reputation as the Sting Queen solely based on her ability to expose corrupt politicians and their unsavoury schemes.

Samar is a highly decorated officer in the Indian Army, who is disillusioned with the government.

Raghav has made his name in the high profile world of business. He has everything in his life. But what he loves to do is pull strings in the maze of power.

These highly motivated friends from college envisioned a golden future for their country. What they never imagined was a reunion in the middle of chaos and anarchy in their beloved country, while standing with their ideologies at different ends of the spectrum.

First of all, I would like to thank the author for letting me access this book in exchange for an honest review.

With my recent fare of political fictions and conspiracies, my head feels like it is floating in a cloud of illusions. The plot of the book is too realistic to ignore. Based completely on the political mayhem in India, the realities of the plot will resound too well with the common public. The success of the book can be largely credited to the excellent narration of the plot comprised of dirty politics and corruption. The characters are well conceptualised and complement well with the plot. The numerous sub-plots may appear out of order, but they coordinate well with the theme of anarchy that was being depicted, and all of them are coherently tied up at the end into a complete package of fast, mind-blowing action.

The cover image is a beautiful representation of the much-cherished Indian Constitution which is often dissed and trivialised in the current era. The title plays well with the plot and creates a moment of intrigue and curiosity for the reader.

Game of Anarchy is a beautiful book from a debut author. I definitely recommend it, especially for those who are fans of political fiction in general or have followed books written by Vince Flynn.
