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. Ashwin Sanghi brings you yet another exhaustively researched whopper of a plot, while providing an incredible alternative interpretation of the Vedic Age that will be relished by conspiracy buffs and thriller-addicts alike.

well..u can say that this is much researched and well detailed take us to the roller coster ride of thrill and put the entire history infront of our eyesight....but i must say the language used is really tough...the english used is of high standard...sometimes u dig in the novel but sometimes u find it really difficult and complicated.....the narration is too long to read and u ll bore at some point.... still thumps up for research he did....well done...not suitable for dummies though good for those people who are fond of reading....

Reminds me of Dan Brown I could see the resemblance of the writer. I have read many religious and historical books on Krishna so I enjoyed reading it. Awesome research work is done. Once u take the book I bet u won't put it back without completing it. If a movie is to beade on this novel I bet it would be a great hit. Very interesting. Read it and find out on your own. U don't have to find Krishna he is always besides you.
