In Mumbai, seemingly unconnected people are dying, strangled in a chilling ritual and with strange objects carefully arranged with the corpses.

For Santosh Wagh, head of Private India, the Mumbai branch of the world’s finest investigation agency, it’s a race against time to stop the killer striking again.

In a city of over thirteen million, he’d have his work cut out at the best of times, but this case has him battling 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 shadows is someone who could destroy the whole organisation – along with thousands of innocent Mumbai citizens…


Frankly, I am heavily disappointed with this book even though it’s written by dream heavy weight collaboration of  two famous authors James Patterson and Ashwin Sanghi. Well, It should have been a classic book, but unfortunate thing to know that this book is as good as a book written by a debut author. Its just one ordinary crime thriller and people wouldn’t have read if it was not for the cover names.
Good part of the book is that the characters are well framed and very diverse which includes Bollywood celebrity, Underworld don, bureaucrat, godman and a corrupt cop.
A stretched climax, not-in-sync collaboration makes this book only to borrow it from your friends and not to buy it
