Publisher's Summary

It is a time of violence as well as calm. Men of peace are spreading the message of the Buddha even as monks are being tortured in the dungeons of Pataliputra. In Magadha, all talk is about the impending war against Kalinga. While King Ashoka plots the movements of his ships and cavalry, Queen Asandhimitra broods over the growing unrest in the kingdom. There is only one man they can both trust to take them through this period of uncertainty and looming danger: the enigmatically named Brahmin, skilful spymaster and custodian of Magadha’s best-kept secrets.

Lush with historical detail and unforgettable characters, The Brahmin is an intricately plotted novel that seeks to re-create a near-mythical period in India’s past.

good narration, but poor story

story jumps to lot of past events; sometimes unnecessary also.
story plot is good.
characters are good but too many.
narrator has done good job to held the listeners.
lot of unanswered questions in the end. lot of references to ramayan without sound background. they talk about mysterious weapon which is imaginary.
monks spy on another monk for no reason.
