Publisher's Summary

What happens when you have to choose between faith and logic? 

Temples are places of worship, oceans of tranquillity, or so everyone thinks, till a series of murders threatens to destroy the carefully cultivated reputation of the royal family of Thiruvanathapuram. And when fingers point towards the opening of the hitherto sealed vaults at the Padmanabha Swamy Temple that is under the control of the royals, all hell breaks loose. Meanwhile, a heist at the Wafi Mall in Dubai leads investigators to uncover a massive racket in the smuggling of antiques from the ruins of temples in south India. Things only get murkier when multiple blasts in Mumbai shake the very foundations of the diamond trade in the country. 

Is there a connection between these incidents? Who is behind the murders? Follow Kabir Khan, Additional Director, CBI, as he breezes through a complex maze of fact and fiction, faith and deceit, religion and commerce to unravel the mystery and unmask the killers with only minutes left at his disposal. Slick, riveting, and fast-paced, In the Name of God is Ravi Subramanian's most gripping novel yet.

Detective par excellence

Wonder how complex a crime investigation can get . This one by Ravisubrahmanyan fully justifies for being called a great thriller. I just could not wait to complete it . A thorough and flawless research must have gone into laying the plot for the story by the author, which is visible at every twist and turn the story takes through out . The narration too is fantastic . I loved reading it .

Not Worth The Time

In line with other titles of Ravi Subramanian had very high expectations from title. Plot is very very loose. Author has tried to inter mix many stories without any worth while outcome. I am highly disappointed

Lucid and spellbinding

This is the first work of this author I picked up and I am very happy I did so. This is a complex story with many characters who have important roles to play. The author takes us through the story without cconfusion and with a lucid narration and clarity.

This story lacks energy and direction

I have read some positive reviews on goodreads.com and decided to spend a credit on this book. It was a mistake. Some reviews there said that this book was a "page-turner", I felt it was the exact opposite. It drags on and on and on and on - without anything ever happening. I really think it is the complete lack of suspense that often made me rewind a few minutes as I lost attention and listened to this audiobook sort of as a background sound, like rain falling on a roof. The performance of the narrator doesn't help either, in fact it is abysmal. One gets the feeling that he is reading off the page like a pupil from a school book, without any modulation of the voice. Chapters are short and start/end at random sometimes at very curious places and the book's end is underwhelming to say the least. I read "The Bankster" from the same author which was better but not great either. I guess that's the end for me here. Shame, as I love to read thrillers that take place in "exotic"/other parts of the world and there are not enough good ones of those around. For people with the same taste, I recommend "The Prisoner" by Omar Shahid Hamid, a gripping novel playing in Pakistan that is excellently narrated by Neil Shaw.
