Chetan Bhagat unveiled the book cover of his upcoming title, 400 Days– scheduled to be published with Westland Publications (an Amazon company) on 8th October 2021.
400 days is third story from the Keshav-Saurabh series after The Girl in Room 105 and One Arranged Murder. Revolving around a kidnapping and a forbidden love story, 400 Days is a riveting read filled with mystery and romance unlike no other. The book presents an unputdownable tale of suspense, human relationships, love, friendship, the crazy world we live in and, above all, a mother’s determination to never give up. From India’s highest-selling author comes a page-turner that will not only keep you glued to the story but also touch you deeply.
A delighted Chetan Bhagat at the cover launch of his book said “I feel 400 Days is my best book ever, maybe because I wrote it with full focus as we were all in a lockdown. In 400 Days I’ve tried to explore themes of a missing child, dangers of the internet and infidelity.”
