The Brotherhood by Tejas Desai

Private Investigator Niral Solanke has lived a life of dissipation in contemporary New York City. He seeks redemption by probing the murder of his childhood friend Priya for a Hindu religious organization.

But what begins as a quest for truth devolves into a fight for survival as Niral is pulled into schemes involving blackmail, money laundering, and religious fundamentalism. Ultimately, he must examine his own beliefs and values when confronted with the corruption of society.

The Brotherhood is a noir thriller and the first book in an international trilogy.

Review - This book is a very enjoyable read. It has well drawn and interesting characters and a fast paced plot that will keep you guessing. I loved the dialogue which was real and well crafted.

The author has tried to incorporate too many elements in an attempt to cover as much ground as possible – sex, organised crime or mafia, religion, love, passion, and art. It’s not a grand mess but it certainly is not far from it. It’s good to bring variety into the plot with different elements but it better be right, otherwise the gamble is bound to blow up in your face.
