Irrespective of the plotline, Ravi sir's thrillers always come up with a fast-paced read, loads of unexpected twists and turns, powerful characterization and highly visualistic narrative. In The Name of God, the latest offering by the author recounts the multiple murders in and around the precincts of the famous Anantha Padmanabha Swami temple, known across the globe for its immense fortune and the adventurous journey of the investigators as they begin to unravel the biggest mystery. --By Madhu Bairy on 28 June 2017
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. --By Amazon Customer Nerio Vakil on 6 July 2017

Anantha Padmanabha Swamy Temple in southern India have total 6 vaults and it is assumed there is a remarkable amount of wealth stored in it. The direct descendants of the king who got that temple built are given the responsibility of the trustee to the temple and the wealth. A fellow who is into the management of the temple doubts that as the wealth is never counted, there might be fishy things going on, probably by the king who is in charge of the temple and trust; and his men.
Rajan decided to play a whistle blower and he files a PLI in court to order the management of the temple (and thus the vaults too) should be handed over to the government. An effort should be made to calculate the amount of wealth and regular accounting should be imposed. This will ensure the proper management of the wealth.
Obviously, many people doesn't find the idea welcoming. Some of them are very powerful and have influence on the state government too. So the government eventually took that stand that the government find the management of the temple and it's wealth is done in appropriate manner, and there is no need to take the matter in hands. Court passes orders to open the vaults and calculate the amount of wealth though.
Rajan was attacked in the court, but the attacker missed the target and instead Rajan's friend was met with death! And, that is not the only murder, it seems that the people associated with the investigation of vault and calculating wealth are being targeted one or the other way.
Why, how and who is behind it, is explored in the book pretty nicely. To avoid spoilers I cannot mention more than this.
Views and Reviews:
The book maintains it's pace throughout. There are a large number of characters appear in the book, the author tried to explore them pretty effectively. The language of the book is simple and effective. Ravi grew up a lot as an author and this book contains a lot of gems in terms of writing. Here are some of them.

It was always the small frauds that lay the pathway for a larger malaise. If one paid attention to the small frauds in the system it became very easy to unearth the decay within.

Convincing people to do what they think we don’t want them to do is also an act of genius, isn’t it?

In this book, the scenes are built convincingly. The surroundings, the environment and the attributes are written in such a way that you can visualize the scene in front of you. That is the success of the author.
A glossary is required in this book which is missing.
Definitely one of the best thrillers of the year by an Indian author so far.

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.
Shall definitely wait for his next writing!
Personally, I found this one to be among his bests. This one is just UNPUTDOWNABLE!!
This book is set in a completely different background from his other work and hence doesn't have any Banker involved (other than he himself), which is a refreshing change :)
Inquisitive, fast paced and down right engaging, this one can definitely be made into a movie. I would recommend this book to each and every one of you. Go get it !
How can a person ask for and drink water when succinylcholine is administered. Like this there are many discrepancies. It is not like Ravi Subramanian wrote this Novel. Nothing thrilling in this.
