Publisher's Summary

A cardboard box is found on a shelf of a London library. When the mystified librarian opens it, she screams before she falls unconscious to the floor.

Within the labyrinthine recesses of the Vatican, a beautiful assassin swears she will eliminate all who do not believe in her twisted credo.

An elite army of thirteen calling itself the Lashkare Talatashar has scattered around the globe. The fate of its members curiously resembles that of Christ and his Apostles. Their agenda is Armageddon.

A Hindu astrologer spots a conjunction of the stars and nods to himself in grim realization of the end of the world.

In Tibet a group of Buddhist monks searches for a reincarnation, much in the way their ancestors searched Judea for the Son of God.

In strife-torn Kashmir, a tomb called Rozabal holds the key to a riddle that arises in Jerusalem and gets answered at Vaishno Devi.

Indian accents are cliche‘d

The book has its ups and downs, but the performance of the audiobook with its cliche‘d accents spoilt the entire experience for me. The caricatured indian and japanese accents for strong characters completely spoilt the book for me

A must read/listen to know the truth!!

Fantastic research once again. The background information is a lot more than the scratch on the surface by Dan Brown. If this story doesn't motivate you to do atleast some sort of digging, then be blinded forever.

please find a better performer.

would be a much better experience if this was recorded with someone who could perform it better. diction, pronunciation etc is good, but the performance is extremely putting off - the performer doesn't understand tone, mood and such things.. he reads it like it's a children's book. almost gave up the book several times just to make him shut up.

Religion in spirit over words

Narration: Very good.

Story: Is griping after while, but too many characters end up making the plot confusing. That aside the book is really good & helps the reader make their own judgement by stating & logically extrapolating facts.

A nice distraction in the vein of Dan Brown

I find Ashwin Sanghi to be like the Dan Brown of India. Much like Mr Brown’s thrillers (The DaVinci Code, etc) he weaves comparative religion into his story. It’s not scholastic, but it’s entertaining for sure.

I see in some of the other reviews that some don’t appreciate the narrator. I think he does an extraordinary job. Mr Sanghi makes it very difficult for the narrator, as the story takes us all over the world, all over the past, and through many different cultural settings. I also think there is an issue with speed of the recording. It sounds normal at a slightly faster speed in the playback settings.

good message, laborious read

struggled to finish. narrator had one accent for Indian which is uninformed. Goan Indian has a different accent from Kerala Indian which is different from Mumbai Indian...Kashmiri Indian.. i think a good oppurtuity of showing Indian diversity was lost

Worst narrator I have ever heard!

This book has a great story with all religions interwoven in a most interesting way. However, the choice of Sanjiv Jhaveri as the narrator creates a story which could have been powerful and reduces it to just another book. Please don’t have Mr. Jhaveri narrate any other book! Ugh!

Very poor

Big disappointment from Ashwin Singhvi, unnecessary details & confusion in the story line, where the reader loses track of the story.
