Title – Private India
Author – Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson
Publications – Random House

From the blurb – In Mumbai, seemingly unconnected people are dying, strangled in a chilling ritual and with strange objects carefully arranged with thr corpses.
For Santosh Wagh, head of Private India. the mumbai branch of World’s finest investigation agency, its a race against time to stop the killer striking again. In a city of over thriteen million, he’d have his work cut out at best of times, but this case has him betting Mumbai’s biggest gang lord and a godman who isn’t all he seems.
And then he discovers there may be an even greater danger facing Private India. Hidden in the shadow is someone who couldn’t destroy the whole organisation-along with thousands of innocent Mumbai citizens

Every day seemingly un-connected women are getting murdered in their own houses by same method. Killer is leaving yellow scarf and items like half coin, lotus in hands of victims.
First murder is of Doctor Kanya Jaiyen from Bangkok who is on personal trip to India and staying in top most hotel of Mumbai, still no security could prevent her murder.
Bhawana Choski, afternoon mirror gossip column talk to Bangkok doctor couple of times on the day of her murder and next day she also found murdered in her own house strangled with yellow scarf in exactly same way.

Who will be next women and why ony women. With such perfect murder with no evidence left, it seems quite tough case to crack for Private India. Is there a man behind all those who hate women or a woman can feel so much hatred toward her own species. Hari PAdhi, Nisha and Mubeen team of Private India is on their toes always to solvethis murder mystery and to save next murderer.Among all this chaos Santosh’s own past keep haunting him and he has to get answer for his own life as well.

My take on book – Having read and liked Ashwin Sanghi’s previous two books – Chankya Chant and Krishna Key, I was geniuly interested in this new book and was really happy to get review copy from blogadda. Reading this huge book in 7 day was days task a big task​keeping in mind my busy schedule and I am glad that I spent my time with this book. It was so interesting with lot of twist and tales that you really want to finish it in on go. Whosoover Whoevernk can be murder get herself murder next day.the next dayever, don’tpect too much of mytha myth mythological influenceis one as his previous work. May be its James Paterson’s influence 🙂
I havent read any of his book but I now want to read him as well.

On the other hand I wonder how these two author start writing the story together with so many different characters all tied together at end with common story. Do they startiting the end first and connect the dots backward or its other way around 🙂

Rating 4/5
