As a kid, when I learnt about the three wise monkeys, I would always ask this question why isn’t there a monkey that says do no evil. Shouldn’t that be more important? Turns out, there is a fourth monkey, which means precisely that. The vault of Vishnu is centered around an ancient Indian secret that could well be called the elixir of life. How the present-day search for the ultimate secret binds a pre-neolithic tribe to the Pallavas and the modern-day geopolitics between India and China.
The book is Ashwin Sanghi’s trademark blend of myth, history, and modernity. In that sense, I can’t really call it unique. However, the idea is different.
The story is riddled with ifs and buts, and even a seasoned reader like me was left guessing at one point.
Ashwin Sanghi’s standard writing style is clear and easy to understand. Letting the suspense out at just the right time is something most authors fail to understand.
Thoroughly entertaining. The numerous plot twists keep the reader guessing and on the edge of the seat.
A fantastic storyline, a great writing style, suspense, and unpredictability make this a great novel.
