Product description

Review

“SACRED GAMES [is] as hard to put down as it is to pick up.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Page after page it plucks me from the here and now.” (Sven Birkerts, Boston Sunday Globe)

“Chandra gives a startling, blood-pumping fallible humanity to his characters.” (Sandip Roy, San Francisco Chronicle)

“Ravishing…Extraordinary...A chaotic and luminous whole.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Chandra…knows exactly when to break rules and when to follow them…Chandra’s genius is in the way he trusts his reader.” (Los Angeles Times)

“Ambitious, sprawling...combines the attractions of 19th-century fiction and a modern police procedural.” (People)

“A genre-bending, multilayered saga...expertly paced and nuanced...A sheer entertainment extravaganza.” (Elle)

“As sprawling as the heat-drenched city it richly portrays.” (New York Times)

“Bold, fresh and big…SACRED GAMES deserves praise for its ambitions but also for its terrific achievement.” (Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air)

“Monumental…Chandra brilliantly evokes...Mumbai...in all its vibrant chaos.” (Wall Street Journal)
