The cyber crime domain is now taking a more creative shape with new web series and stories related to it coming out every day. Adding more fire to it, renowned cyber crime investigator Amit Dubey and Prof Triveni Singh IPS are out with their new book ‘Atharva’, which is a cyber crime fiction, but inspired by real-life incidents and gives a deep insight into evolving world of technology.
Speaking about his book Amit Dubey said the book is first-of-its-kind as it gives the reader a taste of the dark side of hacking, cyber crime and technology along with a gripping story around it.
“The story gives you an unimaginable experience of artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented realities and IOT and big data-based crimes. What is blockchain and how it is inevitable in these situations? What is singularity and when the world is reaching singularity as per Moore’s law”
“It’s interesting to see through these emotional personal stories and how these typical technical jargons are linked to Bhagvadgeeta and how the protagonist in the story sees through these verses and enlightens himself to recognize the criminal,” Dubey said.
The co-author of the book Prof Triveni Singh adds value by incorporating his knowledge of several years of investigating critical technical cases. He played a crucial role in ideation and linking the stories with technical angle and new ways of investigation through which the books unfold.
“I feel the book will fulfil the purpose of entertainment in terms of storytelling and awareness by knowing the future digital threats. We have tried to club the joy of reading with technical know-how. We have also tried drawing a parallel between the modern digital world with the ancient world of Vedas,” Singh added.
The book is now available on Amazon: https://www.amazon.in/dp/8195061621?ref=myi_title_dp
About the Plot: Amit, an Ethical Hacker and a Crime Investigator, who closely works with the police to solve cybercrime cases, indulges in a series of complex virtual world crimes. These crimes take him through a journey of multiple illusions.
There are five unusual criminal cases and Amit starts investigating them one by one, using his hacking and technical skills, understanding the algorithms and decoding the conversational messages. But soon he realizes that he is getting into some trap as all these stories are eventually linked together which earlier seemed to be independent investigations.
Dilip, a police officer and a very practical person, a close friend of Amit, tries to segregate the virtual illusion with the real world.
Kumud, Amit’s wife is struggling to understand Amit and his complex thinking processes but eventually she is the one who is indirectly helping Amit and is instrumental in giving clues through some simple real life learning.
After various shocking revelations and hidden facts every time Dilip and Amit nab a criminal, they realize that the culprit they have caught is not the real culprit, but there is someone, something which is still hidden and they are unable to reach him.
Who is that? and why is it difficult to reach him and where to draw the real and virtual boundaries is what is making it difficult to understand the whole situation.
In such disappointing situation, Amit starts referring Bhagvatgeeta and starts discussing those verses, and soon he realizes the solution.
