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.
A perfect combination of Lord Krishna's story and thrills that keep you invested in the parallel modern tale !
Every mythology enthusiast must read it !
I love a good mystery and have always wondered about the mysteries in Indian mythology. this book is the perfect mixture of Krishna and crime solving..... loved the narration. All in all a great experience
