A brilliant, lengthy yet interesting novel. When you finish reading this, I am sure you would be satisfied of having spent your time and money in buying this. Not many in India do write a novel which is a confluence of religion and fiction and this is one such novel which would surely see him in the likes of Dan Brown, Ashwin Sanghi - if not others.
What is most interesting is how the author has handled the flow meticulously wherein you would never feel the boredom while reading this novel. This 455 page novel would surely be a readers delight and I would suggest you to start reading this on a Saturday preferably sitting near to the window especially when it is raining outside.
The novel begins with three gruesome murders and Jack Stevens gets appointed as the investigating officer by the CBI.
