Jack Morgan has managed to persuade Santosh Wagh to rejoin his global investigation agency and set up a new branch in Delhi. It’s not long before Santosh is thrown headlong into a dangerous case which could implicate the highest members of the Indian government in a string of brutal murders.


Santosh Wagh, the chief of Private India, is forced by Jack Morgan, founder of Private Detective Agency, to open a Private branch in Delhi and took over the command of it. Jack was impressed by Santosh’s skills and mind, whom he showed in the case of Mumbai (Read Private India for details). Santosh reluctantly accepted the request and very soon they got appointed for a very high-profile case.

Some murderer is out there and murdering peoples. 11 bodies are found partially dissolved in acid inside a government building. The matter is very serious and has importance internationally. Plus, It is not only the game of murder but it has turned into the dirty game of political-powerplay also.

Will Santosh be able to save him and others from getting trapped in the dirty political game?

Will Santosh succeed in solving the case?

Will Santosh catch the murderer?

Will Santosh get to know that why the murderer is murdering these people and what is his motive?

And most importantly, Will Santosh survive himself in this dangerous case?

To get the answers to all these questions, read Private Delhi by Ashwin Sanghi and James Patterson.


First if all, It is not a book from the main Private series. It is an additional book in the Series. So, you won’t find it even a bit hard to understand the story if you haven’t read Private books. But, I recommend you to read at least one book before reading this book, i.e. Private India.

It is a medical thriller but not a Robin-Cook-Type-Medical-Thriller. The plot is unique and breathtaking. The best thing about this book is that all the time while reading this story you think that you have predicted the culprit, but wait, it is possible that you might be seriously wrong. Before the actual revelation, there’s only one sentence, somewhere between the story, that actually suggests the identity of the real culprit.

The story is full of twists and turns and the ending is quite unpredictable. Ashwin Sanghi has justified James Patterson or Vice-Versa.

I had read Private India also and liked it very much. The only flaw I found in that book, which is present inside this book also that many things remain unexplained in these both books. A lot of matters are left for the readers’ own assumption and not explained. Of course, they are not from the main course of the story but they left a question mark inside the readers’ mind and ruins the effect. The readers’ focus shifts from the story to the unanswered question- I am telling this from personal experience while reading the book. I hope that if there will be any sequel in the future this flaw will be absent from that book.

Overall, It is a must-must-read book and a breathtaking cum spine-chilling thriller.
