In this novel, the reader is brought into India where an expedition has taken place. The reader is transported to the ancient caves where treasure is buried and newly rediscovered. The CIA is involved and so potentially are the Neo-Nazis, Al Qaida, KGB and Mafia. There is a formula that if used will.....no I can't reveal that. You will have to read it yourself.
I learned a lot from reading it and the ending was quite a shock. You will enjoy it too!
This is a departure for the author of the Manhattan Murder Mysteries, which feature the amiable Sandy Bloorwoise, Dr. Martin and Halley Willard. This book starts off mysteriously with the appearance of an old man in one of the mountains in Afghanistan. The mystery builds up as a woman is murdered and the hero of the book, Satya, falls under suspicion of causing her death. He seeks help from the dead woman's sister and they go to India to clear up the reason of her death.
Karimba Alee is the most enigmatic character of the book. And then there is Zia.
The characters are quite well portrayed, the billionaire Jas who actually lives in a castle with a surrounding moat. An octogenarian scholar with a roving eye, a Russian photographer, and a professor of History. There is some knowledgeable insight into life in an university in India.
The story is around an old manuscript but no one knows what it is about. One page of it which has been found is in a code that no one can break.
Overall fun to read and then the chilling climax makes it worth the price
