Blurb: A politically driven criminal syndicate tries to steal a valuable ancient artifact, The Aravan Head, from a very old temple of the transgenders in Hijravan. Police officer Arya foils the well planned attempt. The incident unfolds a deadly secret that connects to a series of mind-boggling crimes which points to an unlikely person of tremendous authority in the political & business circles of Mumbai. With his friends kidnapped, his own people involved with the criminals and himself facing departmental enquiry, Arya is strangulated from all sides. Meanwhile in Delhi, 4 college girls, fed-up with the canteen food, hire a cook. While they expect an old, typically professional person, they are in for a great surprise that leaves them sweetly shocked. But the surprise is short lived after a beautiful transgender arrives at their bungalow revealing secrets that baffle them. Unfortunately the lives of the 4 girls become a nightmare along with that of the transgender. Did Arya arrest the main perpetrator behind all the crimes? What dangers did the Transgender bring to the girls? Did they survive the deadly situation they were pushed into? What price did Arya pay to win?

Review: Cover of the book is just amazing with an attractive look, Ajitabha Bose cover designer of "The Aravan Head" did an amazing job, cover and the content of the book makes the book beautiful and this book is a very good example of that.
Let's talk about the plot of the book, as this is the first time I picked Arvind's book and I must say Arvind did an amazing job, I hardly read any Thriller genre book and picked this.
The story starts with three different incidents of three different locations but after reading the book you will get to know there is some connection between all the incidents and this will surely thrill you.
I love the way Author had narrated the story it looks like watching a movie with amazing screenplay because in this book one chapter is about past and another chapter is about a present.
The book deals various issues like Political system is corrupt in India., LGBT acceptance in society. systemic rot in police department, theft and smuggling of our ancient heritage in form of idols & Human trafficking
I like the way author have introduced the Arya the police officer same like a movie star. the story revolves around The Aravan Head, from a very old temple of the transgender in Hijravan, &  Arya, the police inspector and his quest on finding the person who attempted the theft of the Aravan Head.
in starting I got really confused while reading because the reading this whole book is like a solving a puzzle and when you complete the reading you will get to know that every chapter of the book is very important for this book, which you can't skip, The perfect combination of thrill, love, hurt, cheat, romance and most of all the history, and yes I'm waiting for Arya again in next book by Arvind.

Positive Points: Narration and the Plot.

Negative Points: While mentioning the places of incidents there is a small spelling mistakes i'm giving one example of it, in book you will found Bhandra but in actual its a Bandra and few more present in the book

Recommendation : Reader of thrilling novel with mystery can read this.
