Pursuit (Second Edition)

Free sample

Pursuit was my first attempt in authoring an English novel. A gripping thriller on international geo-economics. Though it received laudatory reviews from critics, didn’t do well in terms of sales. Its riveting storyline, if made in celluloid, would have been a blockbuster hit. Neither did it make it to that realm.

Thereafter, I have written several thrillers as Fulcrum, Eternal Mayhem, Conundrum. Now in the process of authoring another in different style. In each of my murder-mystery-suspense thrillers, I have created a new form breaking my previous one. A creator re-discovers his versatility when he can break away from a constituted pattern not to be repeated in his next one. All of the books had that innovative element flouting the traditional norms.

A writer matures with more of creative input in varied realms. Since writing Pursuit in 2012, I too have evolved. Looking back at my first English work, I felt it needed the polish. The language made crisper keeping the content intact, resulted in decrease of its size.

Even with the escalated publishing costs, my publisher decided to uphold the previous price making this edition a hardcover one.

Whether this re-edited edition would make it to its desired destiny remains on providence. A writer can only endeavour to deliver his best.

About the author

An eminent Plastic Surgeon by profession, a writer by choice, Aniruddha Bose was born on 19th September 1955 in Kolkata. He developed an interest in literature since childhood from his late father Binayendra Mohan Bose, an ex-graduate from Bengal Engineering College and late mother Ila Bose, silver medal winner in Bengali from the Calcutta University. He is a by-product of St. Xavier’s Collegiate School, Kolkata, later Medical College, Bengal and Royal College of Surgeons, United Kingdom. He spent substantial segment of his life there. Also, a couple of years in the Middle East. A renowned Consultant in Kolkata, he is recognised as one of the leading cosmetic surgeons both nationally and internationally.

From his school and college days he was into writing. Editor of the school magazine Nihil Ultra, his literary zeal was evident from early days. He contributed in several leading magazines during that period and later in United Kingdom and the Middle East.

Life is a voyage exposing its colours in varied veneers. In the year 2006 he sustained a fracture of tibia which confined him to a wheel chair for six months. Continuing his hectic practice even in wheel chair, his social life came to a halt. He was isolated from his other lively activities. To make the best of his solitary confinement, he resorted to his forlorn hobby. He plumbed the bygone literary pursuits he cherished in youth, fortified by his literature-loving engineer father and literary mother until the coercions of his career pushed it to the archive. During this period, he penned his debut Bengali novel ANWESHAN released on 25th August 2007. The novel was an instant success. It hosted his original creative self-expression in a diverse arena. The sales figures of his debut novel soared high. It stimulated his incognito ingenuity urging him to further indulge in the passion, parallel to his busy professional pursuits. His second Bengali novel NISHABDE like the previous one, not only turned out to be a best-seller representing Bengal at the London Book Fair, but also received eclectic acclaim. From then onwards there was no turning back. Destiny had set ajar a new vista of artistic creativity amidst the levied calamity. He split his time between a busy profession and literary quests. He has written several books in Bengali and English. He continues creating more in both the lingoes. It reflects his wide experience as a professional. Widely travelled, he has interacted with various cultures, races and community.

He ventures novel expressive modes in his creations. Several of his novels are on scientific pivot or geo-economics with a deep philosophic insight. This volume contains one such murder mystery suspense thriller PURSUIT.

He is a member of Film Writer’s Association.

He finds solace in his creations, be it in his professional arena or creative literary pursuits. All his novels are depiction of his inner creative ideas sometimes contrary to tradition in search for the Universal Truth.

In his busy schedule, his essence of peace rests with his love for Rabindrasangeet, classical music and his wife Smriti Bose.

Wizard’s First Rule, the first novel by Terry Goodkind, was a phenomenon from the moment it was published by Tor Books in 1994, selling more than 100,000 copies in North America alone. It still sells more than 100,000 copies a year and has gone on to bestsellerdom in the United Kingdom and in more than twenty foreign translations as well as audiobook form.

It is now being developed as one of the most ambitious television miniseries of all time. Executive Producer Sam Raimi (director of the three Spider-Man movies), in collaboration with Disney/ABC, is creating a 22-episode adaptation of the book to be filmed in New Zealand.

Richard and Kahlan’s story unfolds over ten more novels, collectively known as the Sword of Truth series, concluding with Confessor in 2007. Placing Goodkind in the elite club of #1 New York Times bestselling authors, the series has sold more than twenty million copies to date worldwide.

In Wizard’s First Rule, Goodkind introduced the world to an ordinary forest guide, Richard Cypher, and the mysterious, powerful woman he comes to love, Kahlan Amnell. Learning his true identity, Richard accepts his destiny as the one man who can stop the bloodthirsty tyrant Darken Rahl. Hunted relentlessly, betrayed and alone, Kahlan calls upon Richard to reach beyond his sword and invoke something more noble within himself as the final confrontation with Darken Rahl looms.

The importance of Wizard’s First Rule is sourced in Goodkind taking on the toughest of all literary challenges: to tell an electrifying story of action, violence, and adventure that also makes people think, and that would influence the choices and actions of its readers.
