Well told variation of two oft repeated themes - monster hunting & invisibility.
A man lists various real cases of the transparent tissue found in animal bodies, & a conjecture that may be there exists a creature that is fully transparent to human eye.
Later parts are a hunt for this creature. Near end, the protagonist begins feeling like a proper mad & paranoid professor, though the hunt itself is not uninteresting.
It's not a bad read if you can ignore a few flaws:
- Sometimes badly formed sentences - possibly because it's a translation (at least it felt like one).
- Occasionally pedantic.
- Unnecessarily set in Boston - making dialogs that feel like from small town north India appear out of place.
- Unnecessarily explaining that something is in India, marring the flow.
