Finders,Keepers by Sapan

Two men are murdered in settings which speak volumes of involvement of some sacred cynicism. A psycho-killer on the loose? Or is this the beginning of something much more grave and dangerous? This is the tale of how Deputy Director, I.B., Shoumik Haldar and celebrated author Ishan Vajpayee exercise their tools of conventional and unconventional deduction to solve the puzzles thrown across by the enemy. Intertwined intensely with the opulent mythological tales and specimens attributing to the rich cultural heritage of this country, the story depicts the resurgence of a dormant historical sect, which attacks the very foundations of one of the most powerful and secret organizations of all times. Spread across the entire Indian subcontinent, read the mystery as it unravels with the duo travelling from one corner to another searching for the signs.

Nimue Says : First thing , such huge book and such research ! Phew !! *Takes a bow*
There is something very sexy about huge fat books and specially ones that you get hooked to immediately. (+ 2 )

So yeah , I started this book on a very good note and expected it to be same till the end. I faced the very first and the biggest glitch in the book pretty soon. And that is abrupt transition of scenes without any indication. Whether it was indenting issue or formatting could have been better , the thing is if one person is opening the door , I do not expect to find the scene moved to other end of the country which of course I shall not realize unless different characters are mentioned. So directly -1 for this. Once you get used to this ( means now you are extra cautious when a new para begins ) , the book and the plot and the execution of the same will blow you ! 

I learned so much about Hindu culture and mythological stories in this one book , not to forget different conspiracies and their ripples in the history that I am both glad and amazed with all the information , the relations and the inferences that the author deduced. The amount of efforts spent in gathering the stories and to make them a part of the flowing plot is so evident in the book that I am much impressed with the author. 

Having said that , I felt the end was a little too dragged though the execution was flawless. A little too overwhelming by the end but very intelligent book.

My Rating : 4/5
