Welcome back to the shadowy and addictive world of Ashwin Sanghi. After The Rozabal Line, Chanakya’s Chant, The Krishna Key and The Sialkot Saga, Ashwin Sanghi returns at last with another quietly fearsome tale - this time of men who guard the ‘Kalachakra’, or The Wheel of Time. Sanghi describes a world of people at war with one another - a boomeranging conflict of faiths that results in acts of such slow and planned human cruelty that they defy human imagination.

This is just okay from Ashwin Sanghi. It felt like he wants to give you lectures on about everything he has learnt while researching on his idea. I was looking for the story and I found nothing but the lectures. Disappointed by this one but I do know that Ashwin will come up with something great soon. I am still a fan.

Adam is a pretty regular teen, except he's navigating high school life while living with paranoid schizophrenia. His hallucinations include a cast of characters that range from the good (beautiful Rebecca) to the bad (angry Mob Boss) to the just plain weird (polite naked guy). An experimental drug promises to help him hide his illness from the world. When Adam meets Maya, a fiercely intelligent girl, he desperately wants to be the normal, great guy that she thinks he is. But as the miracle drug begins to fail, how long can he keep this secret from the girl of his dreams?

The best thing about this book is surely the freshness of it. Loved every bit of it, especially the unique way of narration.

I really loved the narration of the story. The best thing about the book is that it keeps you guessing who the real liar is? And when in end, you get to know the answer, you are bound to feel satisfied. I really enjoyed this one and I'll surely buy one more book from the same author.

At the same time, children are disappearing from the slums in the capital, and nobody seems to care. Stumbling upon these strange and seemingly unrelated incidents, journalist Chandrasekhar, historian Meenakshi Pirzada and intelligence operative Syed Ali Hassan start upon a trail that leads them into the drawing rooms of Delhi's glittering high society before reaching a terrifying climax in Bhutan.

I knew from the very beginning of the book that where it will go. There were so many coincidences in the book that the overall impact that a thriller actually needs went missing. The writing was strong but the storyline was definitely weak.
