The book is the story of events leading upto Operation Blue Star told with a frank and neutral perspective. The book is well researched and gripping.
The narrator however quotes every actor in what I can describe as a Western attempt to make funny Indian sounding noises. The narrator took no effort to get names and terms right, so Bhajan Lal is called Bajan Lai in many places, Akali Dal is sometimes addressed as Akali Dai (narrator confused between L and I , in the smaller case). Most of all the narrator's attempts to quote Indian characters sound distractingly weird and funny and caricaturizes the characters.

Good narration. Due to the solemn nature of the topic it is difficult to state that I enjoyed listening to this book but it kept me glued to my headphones or car audio for many hours. I don't think a more detailed history is possible, although the reliance on captured documents and counting the victims in millions does take something away from the human nature of the individual's story. There are glimpses those as well in the book but only a few.
