Présentation de l'éditeur

When Santosh Wagh isn’t struggling out of a bottle of whisky he’s head of Private India, the Mumbai branch of the world’s finest PI agency.



In a city of over thirteen million he has his work cut out at the best of times. But now someone is killing women – seemingly unconnected women murdered in a chilling ritual, with strange objects placed carefully at their death scenes.

I've enjoyed the Private series until this book. If I didn't know this was written by James Patterson, I would have guessed it was written by a inexperienced writer. Very disappointing!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 ANOTHER EXCITING (?) THRILLER FROM JAMES PATTERSON! 21 juillet 2014
Par the GreatReads! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Private India by James Patterson is the eighth installment in the Private series. As a story that is set in India, James Patterson has roped in Ashwin Sanghi to co-author the book as he is one of the biggest names in English fiction writing in India. Ashwin is the bestselling author of The Rozabal Line, Chanakya's Chant and The Krishna Key. With another book in his kitty, the number of books either written solo or co-authored by the redoubtable bestselling author is growing by the day. Though I have a strong admiration for JP, I'd like to make myself clear on several issues.

First and foremost, I'm a huge, huge fan of James Patterson. I have received several advanced reading copies of his books. I've enjoyed almost every book that has his name on it. More than a decade ago, a James Patterson novel was like a Christmas affair. Oh, the longing for the next JP thriller was almost painful. But in recent years, a JP book seems to be coming out of the press quicker than it leaves the book shelves. Imagine the number of books that we have seen in 2014 that bears his name: Middle School: How I Got Lost in London (Middle School #6), NYPD Red 2, Unlucky 13 (Women's Murder Club #13), Private LA (Private #7) and First Love. Did I miss any book?

Second and last, there's still a lot of JP books to plow through before the year ends. Next in line after Private India: (Private 8) is Invisible on Jul 31, 2014, Treasure Hunters: Danger Down the Nile: (Treasure Hunters 2) on Sep 11, 2014, Burn: (Michael Bennett 7) on Sep 25, 2014, Middle School: Save Rafe! (Middle School 6) on Oct 9, 2014, Confessions: The Paris Mysteries: (Confessions 3) on Oct 23, 2014 and Hope to Die: (Alex Cross 22) on Nov 6, 2014. It's possible that another release may still be scheduled for December before 2014 closes out.

I'm still a huge fan of James Patterson. I just wish there were fewer books. And not to be inundated by books that bear his name, but the credit of which is shared with others. It has become almost impossible for a fan like me to keep up with all of his books, but then missing out even on a single one is not an easy option either.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Earlier Private novels were superior 2 septembre 2014

The geographical descriptions of Mumbai left me bewildered....too much like a travelogue.
The plot had some interesting turns but the story could have done without the gory parts.
I enjoyed all the earlier Private novels but this one disappointed.

Not as lively or as vibrant as other Private series. Found this one to be dull by comparison.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice one --- another good thriller from the authors. 26 août 2014
Par Subramanyam K.V. - Publié sur Amazon.com

For Santosh Wagh, a deadly nightmare is shattered as he gets a call from his (Private India’s) client. The Marine Bay plaza, a reputed hotel, seeks his help. The murder of a foreign guest and the eerie clues the murder has left are the case in point. Santosh, the head of Private India along with his assistants Nisha, Mubeen and Hari is supposed to chase and solve this. Private India gets into action, however, their troubles double as they are appraised of more murders that happen in the city.

The saga that begins with the murder of a doctor, later claims the lives of a journalist, a pop singer, an actress of the erstwhile era, a politician, a revered judge, a high profile yoga instructor …. the list goes on… Who is the murderer? What is the motive? As the deaths pile up and the questions mount, Private India’s challenges keep multiplying, at some point the battle becomes personal for the team at Private India. Will Santosh and his team put up everything needed to fight this out ? Will the police support them? What will Private India do ? Was the enemy able to infiltrate their ranks as well ? Is the team united against the enemy? Read the book to have the answers .

History, Mythology, a modern day connection and a murderer on the prowl … that’s typical Ashwin Sanghi, now that he has co-authored a book with the world’s highest selling thriller-writer, there was always more and more to expect from Private India. The authors don’t disappoint the readers; they came up with an absolute page turner. The pages just turn automatically, a very fast paced book which is absolutely un-putdownable.

While Ashwin Sanghi’s previous books make us travel all over the globe, this book in its marked shift from tradition keeps us glued to Mumbai, the historical aspect comes out as we are told about origins and history of various places in Mumbai. If it was Lord Krishna in The Krishna Key it was Goddess Durga this time, once again, Ashwin’s History and Mythology elements get their due in the book.

I loved the pace of the book, the language, the eye for detail and the way the plot was woven around one of the most populous cities of the world. The plot covers mafia, prostitution, politics, the judiciary , terrorists, mujahideen, power politics, glamour, drug pedaling, yoga and Indian Mythology … I wonder if there can be a more exhaustive list that can be covered in a 450 page plot.

Coming to the things where I feel the book was slightly below expectations, I think part of these come up because the readers would expect something very high when authors of this stature come together. I felt the book had more breadth for the topics than the depth, the plot covered many things and hence the authors could not do a deep dive and enlighten the readers on few of the areas. Then the ending of the book, I felt it was almost predictable and some how I felt that it was slightly rushed through, there indeed was a twist but a voracious reader would have predicted that one as well.

Ashwin’s previous books had a limited range of topics but they were indeed handled very well, the depth of research was always his hallmark, however, he touches and leaves too many topics in the book. So a reader like me would be disappointed. This is the first book I am reading from James Patterson, hence I cannot speak much about his previous books vis-à-vis this one.

Those things apart, I donot have much to complain, as I told you before this is an absolute thriller and a page turner. Do read it, you will enjoy it.
