What you need to know before your trail

Sam is a war photographer, famous for her hauntingly beautiful pictures of the dead. After a particularly gruelling assignment she checks into a luxury hotel, hoping to unwind with a few days of solitude.

Abhi, the hotel manager, never wanted to be a hero; he just wants to avoid disappointing his father and brother any more than he has already. But when gun-wielding terrorists run amok through the hotel, and his five-year-old Billy is found alive under the bodies of his parents, Abhi and Sam are forced to work together to protect him from the mounting violence.

As the threat of danger moves closer, the bond between this unlikely trio grows ever stronger. If they make it out alive, none of them will ever be the same.

Travel Guide

An unnamed war-torn city

The decision to not name the city, or even the country where the story unfolds is very clever. This could be any hotel in any major city where people find themselves trapped with the threat of war on their doorstep.

The terrorists in the story are not the main characters although this is a character led novel –  they are nameless and stateless,  but they could be from anywhere in the world given current events sadly.
