Eleventh Hour is a Crime based fiction. It’s a story of SP Vikrant Singh who is suspended after landing a blow on the high commissioner’s face. Meanwhile, in Bhopal, five terrorists escaped from the jail and Vikrant is asked to assist. On the other hand, A cruise liner from Mumbai to Lakshadweep is Hijacked. Dealing with all the situations SP Mirza, Vikrant and his team are on the mission to find the escaped terrorists. How will they solve the case? what will happen next? were the questions on my mind.
Firstly, I loved the title and the cover of the story, it’s eye-catchy. The plot of the story is full of twists and turns. It’s fast paced with lots of suspense. One can easily connect with the story from the very first page. The flow of the story is smooth and gripping. With each chapter, it gets more engaging making reader curious about what will happen next. I loved the climax of the story, it was unpredictable. The narration of the story is strong and clear. The Writing style of the author is commendable. It’s crisp and easy. The story gets exciting with every turning page keeping the reader hooked with the story.
The characters that the author made were appealing. each of them had their own personality. The only part that I disliked was the plot suddenly shifted to the character’s past and then again present which made it lil confusing. Themes like love, friendship, relationship, hate, and many others are seen in the story.
Overall, It’s a story with an amazing plot like a Bollywood movie. Like reading thrillers? Go for it.

New Delhi, 2017. It is nine years since the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai and the wounds have still not healed. Especially not for Superintendent of Police Vikrant Singh, who ends up landing a slap on the High Commissioner of Pakistan’s face when he meets him at an event. Meanwhile, in Bhopal, five members of the Indian Mujahideen, arrested by Vikrant, break out of the Central Jail. Vikrant, suspended for the diplomatic disaster, is unofficially asked to assist the team tracking the escaped terrorists. In another part of the country, a retired tycoon, a heartbroken ex-soldier and a young woman dealing with demons of her own embark on a journey of self-discovery aboard a cruise liner from Mumbai to Lakshadweep. Fate, however, has other plans, and the cruise liner is hijacked. Racy and riveting, this is Hussain Zaidi at his best.
