A Buddhist monk in ancient China treks south to India, searching for the missing pieces of a puzzle that could make his emperor all-powerful.

A Neolithic tribe fights to preserve their sacred knowledge, oblivious to the war drums on the Indo-China border.

Meanwhile, far away in the temple town of Kanchipuram, a reclusive scientist deciphers ancient texts even as a team of secret agents shadows his every move.

Caught in the storm is a young investigator with a complex past of her own, who must race against time to maintain the balance of power in the new world.

Welcome back to the exciting and shadowy world of Ashwin Sanghi, where myth and history blend into edge-of-the-seat action.

The Vault of Vishnu

Heard the audio version of The vault of vishnu.... amazing it was... tremendous knowledge of history,science , politics,what not.... My heartfelt appreciations to Aswin Sanghi
The reader was very good. The voice modulations made us feel life like. A small suggestion... while reading sanskrit text,the pronunciation is not correct... it is like an European or American reading sanskrit... When we can be phonetically great in English... why can't in sanskrit?.. please concentrate on that especially when you read mantras you have to be more careful as misreading leads to complications as you know... Thank you for such a great work...

Fast paced as expected

Good fast paced story, although not as fixating as Chanakya Chant. The topic selected for story was very contemporary and recitation was amazing. But story of Chinese traveller sometimes became repetitive and hindrance in progress of original story.

Brilliant Story teller

Throughly enjoyed the book! Hope this is the first of a series.

Only the multitude old names of countries/kingdoms, cities and rivers got quite confusing and was unable to decipher many of them.

Felt for the US and Chinese characters, perhaps another speaker or little more accent to give it authenticity.

All in all loved it....

Disappointed

Made famous by Dan Brown, many indian novel have tried the path of historical facts based thriller. however, Vault Of Vishnu is a very poor attempt at it. the story runs in parallel to historical times and present times but fails to connect completely. The historical times thread could have been dropped completely. The 'facts' are thrown just to crowd the story but creates no impact or excitement and many of them has no connect at all. The story also jumps from episodes to episodes and seems very jerky. To top it all, the end is too filmy as a villain comes into picture as if it's mandatory to have one. A seemingly side character suddenly appears riding a high end byke, throwing granades, killing people and vanishing even before granade detonates.... why? A forcefully fitted characters and episodes....
