As it starts with a futuristic subject, it unfolds and explores a plot that is relevant to the present day.

The team of scientists and developers voluntarily stranded on an island for once may remind the readers of William Golding’s “Lord of The Flies,” however, the content and characters have a completely different fate here. This invokes the element of fantasy and but their future makes the mysterious aspect creep in. The author plans and packs the book with appropriately placed twists, and the title holds absolute relevance only when it reaches the climax. It is surprising for the readers, which makes reading “Collude: A Secret Agreement” a thrilling experience for the readers.

Readers who are fascinated by mystery-fiction, which also has a little fusion of sci-fi elements, can take Kulshrestha’s “Collude” for reading.
