En Route Goa: A Memory Can Taint Your Dreams

"Never judge a book by its cover." I read this line many times. And in 10% of the time book turns out to be completely different than what I expected. 'En Route Goa - A Memory Can Taint Your Dreams' - I was expecting a road/train journey towards Goa. But it turned out a horror story.

Blurb of the book -
Every journey in life has a purpose, and at the end we make lasting memories out of each journey. Some memories will be cherished and some others struggle to be forgotten. En Route Goa is one such journey of a few people travelling to different destinations. In this story, each one plays a subtle role in other’s lives, carving lasting memories in an overnight train travel. But they never knew they were just playing their part in an age old myth.
A short story. Started with 5-6 characters boarding a train, which was scheduled to with night travel. Passengers were A guy in his early 20s, a widow guy in his last 20s, two college girls, a nun and a 10 year old girl, two brothers. In first 30 pages were author tried to settle each character of the story. Few strange things happened before 10 PM. Main story started after 10 PM, for which you have to read the book.
