Private India is about 'Private India' an agency. A detective agency and considered the best in their field.

And the victims does not appear to be related to each other in any way. The murders become high profile. The police are happy to give the case to the agency and so the story goes. And how they find the murderer is the main story. In between they get to know further about the victims and many other conflicfs , oppositions and so on.
Totally the book was a good read.
Ashwin Sanghi's previous books, The Rozabal line, The Chanakya's chant The Krishna key were all a great read. And they were mystifying. Induced an interest in the readers. Symbology and all that stuff. No wonder he was compared with Dan Brown.
James Patterson. A person who has a habit of reading books would be knowing him. And I have read his Alex Cross and Murder club books and some others and they all were good. As far as I have read I was never disappointed in his books.
The combo of two authors have given a great book. But may be I expected more.
And also I felt that James Patterson name should have been first since he is a writer with more experience and he has large fan base than Sanghi. What was publisher's idea behind it?
Private India is the 8th book in the Private series.
Final Verdict of mine: Good
