The author has grown considerably from his initial writing in his early books. This was a thoroughly impressive thriller and kept me captivated. Liked his style of keeping the mind of the reader engaged. The obvious thoughts that one hazards is thrown away in the very next page. Shall excuse the writer for keeping some knots untied till the end but one ought to appreciate that it is difficult to carve new plots in every chapter. Another appreciation worthy aspect was the blend of facts from the modern world with the fictitious plot. –By Sukhamaya Swain on 6 July 2017
I’ve read every book of Ravi Subramanian, though I don’t read much of fiction. ” In the name of God” is as usual fast paced and unputdownable from the first page. Ravi puts in a lot of effort researching to make his plots authentic so there’s a lot of learning too from his books. This one was so interesting that I preferred to forego 2 afternoon sessions of playing Bridge (a priority for me) just to finish it. A great read. Buy it
