According to my view this book is hyped in the market, the material is not that much interesting, what we expect from Ashwing Sanghi, his previous work like Rozabal Line, Chanakya's Chant and Krishna Key are much more interesting read compared to this book. Sometimes while reading this book I though that am I watching CID in Sony TV.
Although if you think that there are 450 pages to read don’t worry, the fonts are big, so one can complete the book within short time period. Also the content and storyline is good, the pace is fast, and there is lot of suspense, confusion, drama and ruthless execution. A thriller with many events interwoven to keep readers guessing, who the murderer is?
The Novel based in Mumbai, Santosh Wagh the protagonist and the director of “Private India,” a detective agency with branches all around the world, and the head of the department is the former CIA Jack Morgan. Santosh Wagh’s team consist of Nisha Gandhe as his assistant, Hari a technology geek and Mubeen the forensic expert. The story starts with a lady found dead in hotel room, and hotel management calls Santosh Wagh, Private India for investigation (just like CID, police comes later, they are happy to start investigation with Private India).
Santosh Wagh and his team was chasing a serial killer who’s only target were women, each murder were gruesome as next, with victim holding different objects in her hand and each murder done by strangling their neck with yellow scarf, and a hair of a single person were the two common items, murderer kept at the murdered place.
Whether the props are used to distract investigation or it is being done for any religious purpose? There are two plots in the book, the first one about serial killing and second Pakistan ISI planning a serial blast in Mumbai.
The thing which I liked the most is a good narration about thugs and thug gee cult of murderer, how they operate at the time of British Raj in India. Although I find the climax disappointing, it’s just one time read.

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...
