Review of 'Private India'

About Author:
Ashwin Sanghi is counted among India's highest-selling English fiction authors. This his fourth work. He was included by Forbes India in their Celebrity 100 list.
James Patterson is one of the best known and biggest-selling writers of all time. Apart from co-authored works, he has written romance novels and stand-alone thrillers. He lives in Florida.
Plot:
The plot of the novel revolves around series of murders in  the economical capital of India, Mumbai. This series of murder forces Santosh Wagh, head of Private India , the Mumbai branch of the world's finest investigation agency to work and think one step ahead then the killer. As per typical scenario, there are people from underworld and politics to manipulate Santosh's task. The situation becomes critical for Santosh when he learns about black sheep in the organization ' Private India'.
Characters:
Santosh Wagh : Head of  Mumbai branch of Private India, who is haunted by his own past. He reminded me of police officers of RGV movies. Drinking down his bitter past with bottles of  whisky.
Jack Morgan : Jack is Santosh's boss, who is the reason behind  Santosh's presence in Private India. He is kind of reason behind stability of Santosh's mind.
Nisha Gandhe : She is assistant of Santosh Wagh. She is in her mid forties and very attractive.
Killer: What you want to know about killer??? Go, purchase the book and find out.
Writing Style:
 "Private India" is a crime thriller novel which starts with a murder and this start seems so typical. Then comes the officer, who has past which haunts him in dreams. These things in beginning seemed to prove this novel to be a sheep in her, but as soon as the pages started turning novel seemed gripping me. The book gives perfect idea that how the crime evolved in Mumbai. Each and every form of crime is presented in this book. Including Mafias, Politicians and other big heads, it makes the novel so interesting that reader will not be able to put the book down. This book is part of James Patterson's Private series. In each book he has selected different countries and  well known authors of the country. In this series he has selected , India and Ashwin Sanghi. This duo has brought a wonderful platter with fusion of West and East tempering. Somehow the western tempering tastes little bit bitter in some parts when there is mention of Devi Maa, Thugees and other points. The easiness with which the police hands over the case to agency is also quite surprising but as they say do not apply logic everywhere specially in literature, where Monkey divided  chapatti between the cats. you can read this novel if you  wish to read a fast-paced novel, with some loopholes which can be ignored easily. You can add this book to your library and enjoy Mumbai's killer's strategies and Private India's hard work to destroy the killer haunting Mumbai with his psycho mind.
My rating for this work is 3/5.
