Five thousand years ago, there came to earth a magical being called Krishna, who brought about innumerable miracles for the good of mankind. Humanity despaired of its fate if the Blue God were to die but was reassured that he would return in a fresh avatar when needed in the eventual Dark Age—the Kaliyug.
In modern times, a poor little rich boy grows up believing that he is that final avatar.
Only, he is a serial killer.
In this heart-stopping tale, the arrival of a murderer who executes his gruesome and brilliantly thought-out schemes in the name of God is the first clue to a sinister conspiracy to expose an ancient secret—Krishna’s priceless legacy to mankind.
Historian Ravi Mohan Saini must breathlessly dash from the submerged remains of Dwarka and the mysterious lingam of Somnath to the icy heights of Mount Kailash, in a quest to discover the cryptic location of Krishna’s most prized possession. From the sand-washed ruins of Kalibangan to a Vrindavan temple destroyed by Aurangzeb, Saini must also delve into antiquity to prevent a gross miscarriage of justice. Ashwin Sanghi brings you yet another exhaustively researched whopper of a plot, while providing an incredible alternative interpretation of the Vedic Age that will be relished by conspiracy buffs and thriller-addicts alike.
About The Author
Ashwin Sanghi is one of the well known writers in the Indian literary scene, and an author of thriller fiction. He shot to fame through his first release, The Rozabal Line. His books are characterized by extensive research, and they're fast paced political or historical thrillers.
Sanghi's first novel, The Rozabal Line, was self-published in 2007 under his pseudonym, Shawn Haigins. The theological thriller based upon the theory that Jesus died in Kashmir was subsequently published by Westland in 2008 in India under his own name and went on to become a bestseller, remaining on national bestseller lists for several months. His second novel, Chanakya's Chant, a political thriller with roots in ancient Mauryan history, shot to the top of almost every bestseller list in India within a few weeks of its launch. The novel went on to win the Crossword-Vodafone Popular Choice Award 2010, film producer UTV acquired the movie rights to the book and the book remained on AC Nielsen's Top-10 throughout 2011-12. The Krishna Key, Sanghi's third novel, is a furiously-paced and riveting thriller that explores the ancient secrets of the Vedic age and the Mahabharata.
Ashwin is an entrepreneur by profession but writing historical fiction in the thriller genre is his passion and hobby. Ashwin was educated at the Cathedral & John Connon School, Mumbai, and St Xavier's College, Mumbai. He holds a masters degree from Yale and is working towards a Ph.D. in Creative Writing. Ashwin lives in Mumbai with his wife, Anushika, and his son, Raghuvir.

I read books like a ghost reader. I read 10 books this month and found these books great. I will write reviews for these on my blog soon.
I, just like those who read Chanakya's Chant and Rozabal Line, waited with incessant fervour so long for Ashwin Sanghi's third book "The Krishna Key" and with FlipKart's peerless service, got this the first day of its release.
Like his other two books, The Krishna Key as well, exhibits Ashwin Sanghi's profound love for History. The way he gathers intricate information and most importantly the way he narrates for common folk to comprehend makes him deserve the accolades of literature.
Coming to the book, though I read the first 5 chapters online long ago, my enthu pursuaded me to start afresh from the first page. The first half of the book engrossed me by his creative way of historic interpretation and interlinking of several distanced unrelated fragments to form a rational whole. The second half as well was excellently weaved with rational intrecacies but somehow I couldn't see in me the pinacle of interest that existed during the first chapters of my read. Probably this is due to the reason that I could predict, almost accurately, the plot laid couple of pages ahead. Adding to these I noticed few textual errors like "Priya and Radhika" instead of "Saini and Radhika"(Page 389, 18th line) and "Saini and Priya" instead of "Saini and Radhika"(Page 456, 4th line) which further made me wonder the authencity of the book and loose my credibility over it. Though the author, just like the other books in this genre(Ex: Davinci Code), mentioned The Krishna Key as a fiction and the instances in the book as imaginary, I expected all the historical references atleast to be true but with a little online digging, I understood that this part of the book too has some discrepancies.
No matter what, it's not a small task but a humongous voyage to collect such tremondous information and to sew these pieces together soo creatively to put into a book and undoubtedly Ashwin Sanghi has done a great job. I read in the other reviews that the plot culmination was bad, however I felt that the climactic explanation of the protagonist's interpretation of their quest was rather spiritual and should be observed this way. May be the dislike towards the End is due to the fact that it was very vaguely linked and related to the rest of the story since its inception. Nevertheless, I suggest one should read this book and one would love it if it's not compared with Dan Brown's books.
I am still living in the novel so I don't know what I am writing... Actually I finished it in a single sitting..... To me it is a Indianized Dan Brown novel... A journey with saini & Radhika....A complete marvel rather "work of art" with almost all good things that a good novel must have.....Coherently written, full of facts and hypothesis a nice balance between mythology and reality(will notice it from very first page). Some interesting inputs on India's pride Taj Mahal, Somnath and finally the crown jewel of the novel(I mean it in literal sense)"The most precious and powerful possession of Lord Krishna" and it's secrets...Makes it a must read for all Indian thriller lovers..... A potential Best seller no doubt about it and finally tons of thanks to Mr Sanghi for presenting such a marvel.....
Cleary a masterpiece! I have read all the 3 books written by the author and I have to say with each book I am deeply amazed with the extent of hardwork/research/technical brilliance that Mr Sanghi has put into while penning down this book. I would personally rate this book in one of the top ten books I have read in my lifetime! Great work Mr Sanghi & team!
Completed reading The Krishna key in record time (my personal record - 1.5 days). Very very transformational indeed! The best of the 3 books written by Ashwin Sanghi! Learnt so many important things by reading this historical thriller! Highly recommend this to my friends who are interested in arts, history, relics, ancient Indian scriptures. The great thing about the book is the plot is so beautifully woven with Mahabaratha that you internalise the parallel story so well. Hardly has the author left any loose ends to the story, that would make the readers question, "why has he not addressed that"?
Added to that what is yet another marvel is the tempo of the book is set very high at the very start of the book itself (infact in the first few lines itself) and the tempo remained consistent and never dropped anywhere till the end!! Its very hard to maintain the tempo throughout the book, given that the author has set very high standards upfront and therefore raised the readers expections! Ofcourse he didn't disappoint me!! I am very sure that the book is going to top all the bestselling charts much like Rozabal line & Chanakya's chants!
My best wishes to Mr Sanghi to produce many more such literary gems such as this one!
If you've read any of Sanghi's other books, this novel will knock your socks off. If you haven't, then reading this will make you want to read more. I can actually smell thrill in those 470 pages. I read this latest work of Sanghi's just the way I ingested the last one, "Chanakya's Chant". With zest. Ashwin Sanghi is a gifted writer who knows how to salt the page with just enough suspense and a gentle touch of fact.
He leads the reader on a journey that ends up leading you to a deeper faith and considering more of what Krishna is doing in our lives.
I definitely recommend this book to anyone.
