@Parvez Thanks for putting this out there. I really liked it!! A mining dig discovers an ancient structure beneath the desert of Rajasthan. Soon after, horrific “accidents” take place. Five experts in their field are brought in to assess the situation. These five experts are not aware of how their pasts have now brought them to this place of evil. Great pacing, great characterization, lots of twists. And even if I had a few ‘but how....‘s in👇🏼

Reggie the end, I don‘t care. Great scary pick from India! 7mo
Parvez @Reggie I am glad you liked it. Arnab Ray is a very talented writer. You should check out his other book, such as Yatrik and Mahabharata Murders 7mo

A man looking back on the lawn that once held court to his wife(no longer there, dead or separated we don‘t know), his father (deceased), his daughter(dead or is alive in some kind of slave trade), and his brother, the only one who is left, a simple man after suffering a prolonged fever as a child. It‘s the obligatory “feel for this man!!!!” paragraph right before he goes off to wherever to get killed. I‘m a sucker for these.

This is a story of deep and disturbingly human evil. As one character after another went through his or her individual hell, befitting the evil inflicted upon others by himself, or herself, we started realising what a unique purgatory, with all possible layers, have been created by the author, for us.
Above all, the book was absolutely unputdownable.

One of the best Indian novels of the last decade or so. A mind-numbingly horrific tale of a quasi-scientific expedition going wrong. Packed with intelligent references to Indian epics, pop culture, horror thrillers. Relentless pace and crackling dialogue, leading to an ending that takes the book to a different level.
