Private India - A book by India’s Leading Author Ashwin Sanghi co-authored by James Patterson. This is a part of the Private Book series by James Patterson. The Indian Counter part of worlds one Of the best detective agencies-Private situated in Mumbai. Headed by Santosh Waghe, An alcoholic by Night and a keen detective by day, followed by his colleagues Nisha Gandhe, Mubeen and Hari form a perfect pack of detectives that any story would weave into.
The highlight of this book is its theme. Indulging Indian Mythology to weave a crime thriller is a wonder full concept. There could have been improvements in the plot; however the writers have done justice to the story. It is indeed a Gripping Book. If you are an Ashwin Sanghi Fan, You might not get what you are expecting. This book is written in a different tone.
The Story is gripping, unexpected twists. Very good narration of the crime scene is one of the best parts of the book. This is one of those books that intrigue the reader to keep guessing the twists or make one suspicious about the character. The characters are properly defined into the plot and the situations are also in a correct plot. This is indeed a thriller that is a once read atleast.
This is a fast read book with simple language that keeps you gripped throughout. The authors have managed to keep the suspense under wraps and hence you realize that at the end, it wasn’t that you guessed. The linking of the murders, to the avatars of Durga and then bring forth the concept of terrorism is a definitely a good plot.
This one book has been my start of the day since the last week, Not that it took me an entire week to read it, best is , it kept me gripped to it, in spite of the busy schedule I had
Certain sentence formation, oversized font is all that I found a drawback tactically. There are certain chapters in the story that you might feel is unnecessarily dragged. I could not relate to any of the characters inspite of this plot being a character filled one. When you are reading a detective thriller, you would want to stick to the leading character and follow through unless and until the mystery is solved.
Even though I liked the suspense (not revealing here since it definitely deserves a read), I would say the book could have ended with a bang.
