    Description
    More terrifying than the savage murder of historian Ram Mathur on the ghats of the Ganga are the questions that follow. The letter carved on his face, the cryptic mail he sends his daughter Sia after he dies, more murders piling up. Desperate for answers, Sia turns to esoteric writer and friend Om Patnaik. But what begins as a hunt for the killer, becomes an extraordinary trail of riddles strewn across the country, that must end at the gates of an enigma. Patnaik and Sia race from one riddle to another, towards a royal secret that has remained alive for centuries.

    A Definite Page-turner

    On the name and the cover:
    The book unfolds around ten riddles which will lead the two main protagonists towards a royal secret. The Emperor’s role in the story is equally effective as well as Patnaik and Sia's. So I think this is the best possible name for the story. This name even matches with the number game the author was playing from the very beginning of the book. Full marks for choosing such an effective and an appropriate name.
    The cover looks appealing. The green color gives the boo...

    Lip-smacking delicious!

    This book is my guilty pleasure, a fast-paced murder mystery that forced me to keep turning the pages long into the night, in spite of that early meeting the next day. But the ... Riddles is also an investigation into India's ancient secrets, hidden in the blurred lines that divide myth and reality. Nayak's extensive research of ancient history, mythology and philosophy combine to create a delicious mixture for readers. And the strength of his writing lies in the deft navigation between the p...

    An intriguing enigma and lots of riddles to solve...

    Historian Ram Mathur is murdered. His daughter, Sia Mathur receives an email from him after his death. He also chats with Om Pattnaik on Facebook after his death. How is all this possible? Have modern scientific inventions and discoveries made it possible for the dead to communicate with the live? How far has science progressed in the modern world?

    Did our ancestors know better 2000 years before us? Did Ravana actually use the Pushpak Vimana, a flying chariot, to kidnap Sita? Was Mohenjo Dar...
