After reading Private India, I was eager to read Santosh Wagh's and Jack Morgan's next, Private Delhi. When the two master thriller writers, Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson join hands together to write, then it's almost impossible that the book will not be an exciting read.

Then the murders go on and these are not simple murders but brutal ones. Santosh Wagh is assigned the task to find the serial killer on the loose. As eh story unfolds itself, a lot of excitement, suspense and intrigue will take its course as the secrets of some high profile individuals in the capital are unfurled.
India's Dan Brown, Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson, UK's one of the best writers in the genre have done a remarkable job in the sequel to Private India. Both the writers have weaved a story which is sharp, crisp and exciting to read. The narration and flow of the plot is smooth and well planned. Also, the vivid description of places with the wonderful description of the sounds, smells and emotions of the people are something which will allure you to read the book.
