About the book

The story is about the desire to get rich, the greed that follows that desire eventually leading to murder. The twisted plot of the book makes for a fascinating read that encapsulates a number of subjects apart from banking. The story begins with the Clinton administration in U.S debating on whether the Gun Control Act is a merit or demerit to the American society.

On the other hand, Cirisha has obtained a cryptic message and her banker husband Aditya is hatching a plan to set up a very intelligent financial hoax. The nefarious thoughts breeding inside the minds of the characters in this book are set for an ugly turn of events that will enchant and intrigue the reader. You are also introduced to few more characters as the story proceeds. The other characters include Cirisha's father who is an Emu breeder in Coimbatore and three other characters from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). James Deahl, Michael Cardoza and Richard are also characters from MIT in the book. The story gets more riveting when the National Rifle Association (NRA) approaches Michael to assist them with a research assignment which is later passed on to his arch-rival James.

The story is riddled with vicious intent of malice, distrust, envy and a single motive of motive.

If God Was a Banker, Devil in Pinstripes, The Bankster and The Incredible Banker are some of Subramanian's famous works.

     Pure adrenaline rush: A nail-biting thriller that leaves you breathless!!!! 21 October, 2013 On
    This thriller actually thrills to the core and keeps the readers on the edge of their seats. After reading the previous works of Ravi Subramanian- the "John Grisham of the Banking World" this novel was a MUST HAVE!!! And surely it lives it up to its predecessors. This book kept me up all night; I just couldn’t keep it down. It held my interest till the end. Even after finishing, it remains with you for a long time.

    >>>>Pros: What I love:
    It is sheer brilliance. I loved everything about this book. It's fast paced with all the right ingredients of thrill, greed, ego, bitterness, politics, intrigue, love and of-course murder. Ravi S knows his subject well and can make a seemingly boring, mundane topic interesting and captivating. The book starts with the President of United States worrying about the controversial “Gun Control Act” and then it focuses on the parallel tracks of the three main characters Cirisha Narayanan a MIT Professor, Aditya Raisinghania- the MIT professor’s husband, a banker living in Mumbai. And finally Narayanan – Cirisha’s father who runs a bird farm. Each of these characters is different, strong and well etched. From the political scenario of US concerning the Gun Control act to the Emu farming in Coimbatore; and from the Academic world of MIT-Boston to the Dharavi-Mumbai, Ravi S take the readers on a roller-coaster ride with shocking twists and turns. This book shows to what degree a person can go inquests for money and power.
    The plot is very gripping. It’s sleek and smoothly transform from one part to other. The climax really elevates the whole feel of the novel with unexpected twists.

    >>>>Cons: What I don’t like
    Well it’s not very industry based like the previous books. I liked it but maybe others may not like this prospect very much.
    Also I felt some of the characters lacked depth and were not very well-developed.


    Yes!!! Highly recommended.
    This book is a must have for all the people who love conspiracy based stories. A very fast-paced novel that is intriguing, exciting and thrilling to the core. Book after book Ravi S has proved himself as a great writer. He has mastered the art of writing suspense and thrillers. I am already waiting for his next work!!

  2.  A spine chilling thriller 17 November, 2013 On
    Congratulations to the author for bringing in another spine chilling crime thriller in tune with expectations of his ever growing fan club across the world.
    A perfect spine chilling narration of how businesses across the world can change the lives of people, in the thirst for power, prestige, money and ego and finally end up destroying so many lives of individuals and their families, forever.
    Continuing the saga of the author’s banking background, Aditya Rajsinghania, the head of investment banking wing of an MNC bank Greater Boston Global Bank, along with his batch mate in college, Shivinder, enter into a dubious deal of funding a local shoe company, initially, by jacking up the profitability illegally and later facilitate a take over by an MNC shoe manufacturer, Snuggles at an astronomical price, with the help of Aditya’s father-in-law, based at Coimbatore, a shrewd businessman involved in Emu birds farming. These two guys take their own cuts for the deal.
    Aditya’s wife Cirisha Narayanan, a research scholar in MIT, Boston in USA is a highly ethical and ambitious individual who mistook her husband’s motives in career before marriage but chooses to live her life through her own career in Social Psychology, with the help of her guide and mentor Michael Cardoza. In one of her research projects in India, she accidentally discovers a fact that child labor is rampant in one of the shoe manufacturing factories of Snuggles Inc, which she escalates to their Head Office in USA, that pulls of the trigger to unveil the entire money laundering activities of Aditya and his friend Shivender, as a result of which both of them lose their jobs and Aditya is forced to join her in USA, as a dependent.
    Meanwhile, Michael Cardoza is in tussle with his counterpart James Deaehl, both senior academicians in MIT for the post of the Dean of the College and oppose each other in a State subject of Gun Availability and its Control in USA which is becoming a serious social problem in the country of late, backed and financed by many dangerous National agencies, MNC banks and Investment Funds. In this scuffle Cirisha, her co-research scholar Richard and Aditya get entangled, resulting Cirisha and Richard getting murdered brutally. And later Shivender. Finally, Aditya solves the murder mystery with the help of the local police with his intelligence only to escape life sentence for a highly punishable economic fraud case and lives on a sober and painful life after having lost his dear wife and a buzzing career in banking.

    The author is once again successful in creating a great reading experience through logical linking of events in two far off countries with wide cultural and economic differences. However, the reader somewhere gets disconnected with the flow of events in India and suddenly pushed into a totally different social problem about Gun Control of USA.
    The story finally ends with a fact depicting that even an advanced country like USA is no better than a Third World country like India when it comes to problems like crime, homicide, cheating, money laundering, black money, insecurity, Constitutional loopholes, political interference, economic frauds, scams, social injustice and discrimination across all strata of their society.

  3.  A Thriller 30 January, 2014 On
    This book by Ravi Subramanian is a spine chilling thriller, it is a 400 page book & the story is medium paced, however, would keep the readers glued till the end. It has a main plot & various sub plots.

    However, there are a few hitch in the plot, the Police department has been shown pretty lame, where their understanding is questionable.

    Overall a good book & would certainly recommend for a read.
