I didn’t expected this from the author who wrote ‘Chanayka’s Chant’. This book direct mixture of three Dan Brown’s book – ‘The Davinci Code, Angels and Demons and The Lost Symbol’. You might be wondering how? here is how –

Story starts with a murder of a symbologist who the same night had dinner with our protagonist Saini. The murderer leaves a message at murder scene – a symbol and intials R.M which happens to be the same initials as Mr Ravi Mohan Saini’s name(remember p.s. find Robert Landon). Police arrests Saini for murder exactly same happens to Robert Landon in davinci code and the Saini is rescued by female sidekick Priya – exactly same as Davinci code in which Landon is rescued by Sophie. What more the inspector in charge is known as Sniffer Singh because she solves almost all case assigned to her and in Davinci code the inspector in charge is know as Bull.

What more – after each murder killer leaves a symbol at murder scene, remember Angels and Demons in which killer also leaves a anagram at each murder scene and that to happen to be four symbols and combining all four will result in mega symbol which will be key everyone is after.

And the climax, O God, is exact replica of Lost symbol. Remember a science mentioned in lost symbol known as Neutic Science – and the climax or answer for this puzzle is Neutic Science.

Murderer in this book thinks himself to be Kalki avatar, who is under influence of a women named Mataji – who is after this secret – again exact replica of Davinci code in which a murderer who think himself as chosen by god start killing people who is under influence of a priest from Vatican.

And most of the things mentioned in this book doesn’t have any historical background and lack historical accuracy. I was shocked – doesn’t Sanghi read history in school? How come someone who wrote Chanayka’s Chant authored this terrible novel? A year has 365 days not 360 days, what’s the logic behind 9×1 = 9 and 786 etc? how on earth they are relevant to plot? would you care to explain?

I think he has done zero research or no research at all! otherwise it wouldn’t have contained so many historical errors. I agree it’s fiction but that doesn’t mean – you will simply write whatever comes to your mind without logic or proper research and which doesn’t have any significance to plot.

No recommendation from my side.
