Publisher's Summary

'When it's a question of money, everybody is of the same religion.'

The trajectories of Arvind and Arbaaz, both businessmen of a kind whose lives are unwillingly intertwined, ricochet off one another while they play out their sinister and murderous plots of personal and professional one-upmanship, all the while breaking every rule in the book. Both are unaware that what they seek and fight over is the very obstacle in realising an ancient secret that dates back to a time long forgotten. And yet, at the heart of it all, there lies tenderness...and pathos...and blood...and rare moments of an almost exalted happiness. So, can it be that a man is both sinner and saint, victor and victim, black and white?

Ashwin Sanghi, master storyteller and spinner of yarns, weaves together once more threads of the past and present, fact and fiction, history and mythology, business and politics, love and hatred while dangling you ceaselessly over the cliff with this chilling multilayered narrative, keeping you guessing till the totally unguessable end. And you're left wondering whether it's a matter of faith...or fate.

A Jeffrey Archer copycat.

This is my first Ashwin Sanghi book and I found the book to be very stereotypical of its portrayal of characters with lots of similarities to Jeffrey Archer's style of story-writing. Sagar Arya is terrible at many of the pronunciations of Sanskrit / South-Indian words (with a lot of unneeded stereotyping of certain characters), and is not very convincing in differentiating the characters by the use of voice modulations. I'd rate him a 1 / 5 for the same. While the story had some good aspects sprinkled here and there, I felt the author felt a little too imaginative right at the last chapter which I thought was totally unnecessary.

Absolutely brilliant!

I loved this book and it's narration! this was my first book on audible and having been a fan of Ashwin Sanghi's I decided to give it a try. I loved Sagar Arya's narration and pace. I was really an Indian was narrating this book since it has a lot of references to Hindu mythology and getting the pronounciation and tone right was important. thanks Audible for this one!

Gripping thriller with a historical backdrop

A book well narrated and well maintained. Best part is going through the timeframe of the Indian history with a suspense. Finally ended in mythological climax.. loved it.

Amazing story telling and brilliantly narrated.

A great insight to history and spirituality. Very well written which would also be great as a film.
