Publisher's Summary

On 8 November, when the clock strikes 8, your money will be no good. 

Somewhere on the India-Nepal border, a car full of passengers swerves off a highway and plunges into a valley, its trunk full of cash. 

In the UK, a Bollywood starlet wins Big Survivor, the most popular reality TV show in the country. 

In Panama, Central America, a whistle-blower at a law firm brings down billionaires across the globe. 

And in India, a new RBI Governor is appointed. 

Aditya Kesavan is dynamic, charismatic and ambitious. And he's been handed the reins of the RBI on a platter. His only job: to make sure he doesn't rock the boat. But, unknown to him, the wheels have begun to turn, as the country heads towards the biggest financial event in modern Indian history. And Governor Kesavan is about to carry out the most brazen act of his life - and, perhaps, his most foolish. Will he be able to pull himself out of the mess he has got into or will he have to surrender to the manipulative forces behind the scenes? Running desperately out of time, the Governor must set things right.

The narration was stilted

And the story was just to sensational to be believable or enjoyable. And, the narrative style was not that good

The narration is very stilted, can't enjoy story

The narration was stilted. I could not even manage to get halfway through. I was liking the story, but i can't stand that performance.

Read it twice!

Catches and holds your attention right from the beginning. The story takes its inspiration from some of the real life incidents in the Indian political scene and weaves it with gripping fiction. Masterful story telling right to the end by Ravi Subramaniam.
well read by Venkataraghavan Sriniivasan

Inspired by Real Life Events

This was my first book by Ravi Subramanian and it truly reveals the linkages between the Govt of India and the RBI. The deep rooted connections between demonitization, illicit currency, match fixing, terrorism and bollywood are nicely brought out by the author, that is understandable by common man and a reader who is not involved in banking arena. It was a very good listening especially the climax about the role of various interlinked characters. The author has successfully woven several real life events into a financial thriller. He has also explained some important concepts like repo rate etc which are truly informative. Overall an excellent thriller with some predictable plots yet with some guesses in next. I will definately be listening to more of Ravi Subramanian in the coming months

Story of Governance at the highest level.

I have been reading Ravi Subrahmanian for some time now. I just finished reading his another recent book " Don't Tell the Governor" .

Given the storyboard (of course a fiction) that it is all to do with Central Govt, RBI , power brokers, criminals, aircraft highjacking drama, terrorists and more importantly about how a Govt functions at highest level in tackling critical issues in the interest of the nation and it's people , the book is a fantastic read as a kind of detective story .

I strongly recommend it's read especially now when the nation is going through a general election. The reward one gets is that there is a lot of comparison to draw about real life situation and beyond to enjoy it's impact as a fictional story.

Do not loose time, pick your copy and read and there is an audio version also as an option .
