Book - Seventh Cup: A Suspense Thriller with Hints of Romance


Title: The Seventh Cup
Author: Nitish Kumar Jain
Publisher: Cyberwit
Pages: 311
Price: Rs. 225
My Rating: 3.5/5

Blurb: A student of history in Switzerland goes missing; a man drinks exactly seven cups of coffee everyday in the same restaurant and believes in Mind Transportation. Two newly married Swiss detective agents arrive and begin a shocking tale of love, friendship, betrayal and death. From the colorful coasts of Goa, India to the enchanting backdrop of Zurich,Switzerland, the mystery of Verona Schmidt baffles everyone. With shocking twits and turns in every chapter, The Seventh Cup might just have the addictive flavor to stir the readers mind...may be forever !!!

With a beautiful and attractive cover, it is a well written suspense-thriller mystery novel which also has hints of romance. It revolves around multiple characters and introduces an interesting concept of 'mind transportation'. It is loosely inspired by 'The Secret' by Rhondy Bryne and one can clearly be inspired by the concept.

Talking about the story, it is engaging and twisting. At places it is very confusing as well as the flow changes and storyline moves every few pages. If you are not sitting continuously and reading it, you might have to go back and re-read few lines to get back into plot or not feel like you are missing something. 
The story is written primarily in two folds, experiences in Switzerland and in Goa, both are written in most picturesque way and you can actually feel the beauty of both places.

In terms of characters, they are well written and everyone play a vital role. However, at times you feel certain characters a little too drenched into the story which might not have been needed.

All in all it is an engaging story with hardly any grammatical issues. It is evident author has put in good efforts into the book. The only drawbacks I found were - it was too long, some monologues were boring (and slight irritating at times) and of course the flow. Apart from these it is a perfect read and my review for it is 3.5/5.

You can buy the book here. I enjoyed it, hope you enjoy the book the too.

  1. Sounds like an interesting read.

  2. Looks like a real thriller, good that there aren't any grammar mistakes, it is too irritating to continue reading otherwise.
