Mythology and Thriller are one of my favorite combinations to read. The title of the book is intriguing and the book is equally interesting. I loved reading it
The story is about a conspiracy which involved Ghost. Shocking right? The city of Ranchi was haunted by the ghost of Satyabhama, who was the right hand of the King of Palamu in the history. The ghost had killed 2 science professors till now and was on a loose to kill more people in order to protect the treasure of the king. The police wasn't able to hack the case and were constantly pressurized by the media and people of Ranchi. They roped in Robin who was the famous detective, in order to solve the case.
Robin was a genius and was always able to crack the hardest of cases but this case had no end. Eventually he started believing in the ghost stories but there was something more to it. Will Robin be able to crack the case? Will the ghost stop killing people?
I was intrigued by the turn of events after every chapter. The story is full of emotions, action, drama and science. I was really fascinated from the very first page of the book. The author's writing style is simple and will keep you hooked throughout. The character building is strong and the way the author describes the various scenes is commendable, I actually imagined all of it. The book is well paced and an enjoyable read.
I must say this is the best cover image of a novel that i have seen in recent times.Its even better than the cover of immortals of Meluha!(The books names sound similar too!).And the story is really mindblowing.Writing style is so good that one feels he is in the middle of the story standing with the characters of the book while reading.its a tightly paced thriller and you wouldn't want to miss even a single word.Somehow you connect with the characters.The character Satyabhama is beautifully constructed and one really feels for him.And the detective Robin Horo with his "sharper than laser" brain will make you fall for him.An amazing book that you cannot afford to miss!
The writing style of the author is very uncomplicated Also it's simple to understand. The chapters are small which is a good thing because they helped in smooth narration. Also a map was provided at the start of the book which really helped in imagining places. The story is thoroughly engrossing. Also I was successful to decipher the twists before Robin explaining them 😁. . The cover is very attractive. It's a fast moving story I literally finished this book in one sitting. Also the characters are sooo amazingly written there is introduction of some new characters thorough out the book. This book is a MUST read for all historical fiction or historical thriller lovers.
This book definitely possesses some supernatural power. It keeps you unmoved and hooked till you finish it. I'll try not to give any spoiler here. But if I do then sorry its not my fault this book is to be blamed for the same.
So the story starts with the ghost of Satyabhama haunting the Palamu fort and protecting something no one is aware of. But miles away from the fort a Professor named Anand was killed and rumors and the people who witnessed have a say that he was been killed by the ghost of Satyabhama. Inspector Patrick and detective Robin were all set to find the culprit but as the events took place inspector Patrick and others were convinced that the ghost behind the entire scenario. However, Robin wasn't satisfied with the reason. I found Robin as another Sherlock (just for the Palamu Fort mystery).
Could it be a conspiracy of the ghost or is Satyabhama actually behind the lives of the people?

Writing style: The writing style of the author is lucid and keeps the readers gripped. The book is fast paced and didn’t seem unnecessarily dragged.
Language: The language employed is simple and easy to understand. There are no technical jargons used by the author.
Book cover: The book cover initially gave me an illusion that the book is historical fiction but I am glad it wasn’t! Instead, it is a perfect blend of thriller, mythology and criminal suspense.
To begin with the cover is so awesome. It depicts the most critical part of the book so beautifully. The colour combination, fonts and overall view is just so attractive. The story revolves around Detective Horo who is incharged to solve the murder mystery where the murderer is a ghost. A ghost who is protecting something more precious, something he lost his life for. This story is definitely a page turner. The twists and the plots are just mind blowing. I loved how the author used his cards for the twists. The language is easy and the story line is quick to grasp. Smaller chapters makes one really curious to read what is stored for him ahead. From the first chapter itself the book is grasping and the twists leaves you shocked. The end was definitely unpredictable and this book is surely loveable. This book is a combination of mystery, suspense, detective and history. So if you love books like Krishna Key, then this book is surely a must read.
First time when I looked at its cover, I thought it is a mythological book but as I turn the pages the book turns out to be totally different. It’s a detective story which is an awesome combination of suspense and historical fiction. The story begins with the death of a Professor. Eyewitnesses claim that he was murdered by a ghost. The book has all the elements which a good thriller book should have. Robin Horo, the protagonist of this story is a detective with keen observational and deduction skills who firmly believes that “Nothing happens by coincidence”. I was awestruck by the solution of a three-century-old puzzle which Robin solves with his intelligent and sharp mind. The author has surely taken a lot of efforts in designing the puzzle and plotting storyline around it. Other characters of the story, Neil, Babulaji, Inspector Patrick and my favourite Naseem Bhai also have an important role and their unique traits are well suited for the story. The entire story is related to Satyabhama, a member of Kings Guard who lived about 300 years ago. I personally like how the author has narrated his story in parallel with the current events. I was astonished by his skills and bravery when he single-handedly fought against the traitors. His death scene literally pulled tear out of my eyes. While reading this book many questions pop up in mind, Is the ghost of Satyabhama real? Why is he haunting the house of professors? Where will the riddle found in the house of Professor Anand lead them? The book has engaged me every second and the story became more and more interesting as I moved further. The story is marvellous and narrating style of author has added sugar in the milk. Language of the book is simple and reader-friendly. Suspense added in the story keeps the reader involved until the end. I would recommend this book to all thriller and mystery lovers.
