Publisher's Summary

Five thousand years ago, there came to earth a magical being called Krishna, who brought about innumerable miracles for the good of mankind. Humanity despaired of its fate if the Blue God were to die but was reassured that he would return in a fresh avatar when needed in the eventual Dark Age - the Kaliyug.

In modern times a poor little rich boy grows up believing that he is that final avatar.

Only, he is a serial killer.

In this heart-stopping tale, the arrival of a murderer who executes his gruesome and brilliantly thought-out schemes in the name of God is the first clue to a sinister conspiracy to expose an ancient secret - Krishna's priceless legacy to mankind.

Historian Ravi Mohan Saini must breathlessly dash from the submerged remains of Dwarka and the mysterious lingam of Somnath to the icy heights of Mount Kailash in a quest to discover the cryptic location of Krishna's most prized possession. From the sand-washed ruins of Kalibangan to a Vrindavan temple destroyed by Aurangzeb, Saini must also delve into antiquity to prevent a gross miscarriage of justice.

From the best-selling author of The Rozabal Line and Chanakya's Chant comes yet another exhaustively researched whopper of a plot, which provides an incredible alternative interpretation of the Vedic Age that will be relished by conspiracy buffs and thriller addicts alike. Ashwin Sanghi and Amish Tripathi are considered to be the frontrunners in historical and mythological retelling. This book is part of that trend.

Hate the forced Indian accent

Indians do not have this harsh accent ironically narration was in Indian (normal) accent but dialogue feels forced Indian accent which was unnecessary and resulted in a very bad experience of this interesting and awesome book/story

Good story with a lot of things to ponder on.

Loved the way Mahabharata and the Krishna Key rolled along. Several interesting things to read more upon enhanced the overall experience.

Narrated very well, but I expected better Sanskrit pronunciation by an Indian / Indian origin narrator.

A good book but an over enthusiastic narration

Like a typical Ashwin Sanghi book,this one has all the ingredients for a fast paced thriller but the narrator is just too enthusiastic with his voice modulation and narration.Can be clearly avoided.

Have the potential to be a good Netflix series

Hope Eros doesn't mess it up. Also the narration of Mahabharata can be done with pictures as prologue to each episode.

One of the best mythological thrillers!

This was my first ever Audible title and it was worth every minute spent listening to it. Nikesh Patel has put in a great effort into the narration which becomes evident as the story progresses.

Science meets mythology

Well narrated. I don't reach often but this book has kept me hooked. The narration is at a good pace and the Indian voice and modulation makes it interesting. The different perspective that has been presented about our various structures was amazing. If u haven't seen the trailer, go head and watch. The bgm is amazing.

Review for Krishna Key

great story. writer has dwelled into the finest nitti grities of the historic relevance of the maharata and monutemts esp the temples of lord Shiva. extremely cautious with his choice of words, this is one of the finest reqds. narrator have done complete justice to the writers work. people with some sense or liking to historic references will surely live this work.
