I have read all his books and each book will make you happy and contented in the end. His latest book Hold that breath 2 is a horror short story book.
It has 6 stories, and each story is different from another. Everyone can read it at one go because of the Flawless narration. The stories were not that scary but if you read them at night, you will have dreams of the stories.

The cover of the book is genuinely nice. Special thanks to the designer book bakers for a wonderful cover that itself urges you to buy the book. I loved the concept of an author on a train journey telling the story to the co-passenger to pass the time with an unthinkable twist which is the highlight of the book. My Personal favorite is Meat in the Fridge.
This story was scary, as I had dreams of this story and I could not sleep. Jokes apart I loved the writing Style of Abhirup. The Title of the story is apt with the storyline. I would wait for the Web series of every Abhirup Dhar book and wish him all the best.
I would recommend everyone to purchase this book, Hold that Breath 2 if you like Ghost stories as these are scary and Interesting stories that will surely keep you hooked at your seat till you finish it.
Verdict: ☆☆☆☆☆Hold that Breath 2 is a book with Flawless Narration and an interesting twist that keeps you hooked till the end. The Author is a great storyteller. Highly recommended book for everyone.
