    Mehr is my heroine!

    I pre-ordered the book and its arrival was all I had been anticipating. After reading the Taj Conspiracy I was wondering if Mehr could get involved in anything thrilling again. But the Hunt for Kohinoor weaved that in beautifully. The book is exciting because it is based in current day India but helps understand aspects of the deep history specially in the Indo-Pak region. No author has been able to present a thrillers in one of the most explosive region. Surprising but encouraging to learn ...

    Best 96 hours ever!

    Considering that Manreet Sodhi Someshwar's "The Taj Conspiracy" was a critically commended and bestselling novel, one would think that she would use the same formula for the "Hunt for Kohinoor", the second in the trilogy. Instead, I was left pleasantly surprised by the conception and execution of the plot of her new racy thriller.
    First things first, it's an absolute page turner, and I finished it in a single night. Even though it's evidence that years of research have gone into creating thi...

    Worth not

    I read a few sample pages...the book is another glamour bought forward by money, which is reflective through the author introduction content. Just a wast of time and seemingly no great effort have been put to make it class...people supporting this book need to read classic literature...at least once in their life course..

    Mark of a perfectionist!!

    I am a huge fan of the prequel “Taj Conspiracy” and was waiting eagerly for the new book. Manreet has created really strong characters in this book and I loved the way she has kept them so real. In a plot like this, it is very easy to get carried away and make the lead character do a lone gunslinger act. She made the characters bleed, break bones and curse the weather. This book has every component of a thriller movie, without making it a larger than life “Hero rescuing heroine” story line.

    Fast Paced, thrilling adventure

    I became fan of the author when I read The Taj Conspiracy. A gifted author, well said by the legendary Khushwant Singh. The plot created and presented is in such a way that you will scratch your heads for a while that how can one be so flawless. It requires patience to write such kind of a book. A detailed research and giving it time is crucial for this work. First of its kind where you have a female protagonist in a thriller. I would say a great work, heart pacing 96 hours they were. You wil...

    An absolute page turner

    I became a huge fan of Manreet's writing since I read 'The Taj Conspiracy'. So I was really looking forward to reading 'The Hunt for Kohinoor', and it turned out to be an absolute page turner. The edgy thriller keeps you glued through the snow capped Himalayan mountains, Kabul, Lahore- Islamabad GT Road. Author's love for the history of the Af Pak region shines through the book, makes you appreciate hours of research gone into it.

    I loved the strong yet subdued Mehrunissa in The Taj Conspir...

    The Hunt For Kohinoor By Manreet Sodhi Someshwar - A Book Review

    This 425 paged novel is Manreet’s fourth book and second in the Mehrunisa Khosa series. The first part, The Taj Conspiracy, was critically acclaimed. Unfortunately I didn’t review it or read it but yes, they were pretty good (from what I could gather from the opinion of the people whom I know who have read it). The basic story is that Manreet creates an interesting character who is an art and history expert who ends up helping Indian intelligence agencies crack codes which are based on histor...
