A cardboard box is found on a shelf of a London library. When the mystified librarian opens it, she screams before she falls unconscious to the floor. Within the labyrinthine recesses of the Vatican, a beautiful assassin swears she will eliminate all who do not believe in her twisted credo. An elite army of thirteen calling itself the Lashkare Talatashar has scattered around the globe. The fate of its members curiously resembles that of Christ and his Apostles. Their agenda is Armageddon. A Hindu astrologer spots a conjunction of the stars and nods to himself in grim realization of the end of the world. In Tibet, a group of Buddhist monks searchs for a reincarnation, much in the way their ancestors searched Judea for the Son of God. In strifetorn Kashmir, a tomb called Rozabal holds the key to a riddle that arises in Jerusalem and gets answered at Vaishno Devi. In The Rozabal Line, a thriller swirling between continents and centuries, Ashwin Sanghi traces a pattern that curls backward to the violent birth of religion itself.

Review:

I happened to borrow this book from one of my friends and I instantly got hooked to it. Author did a really good job at plotting the story based on famous historical incidents. Ashwin Sanghi is no doubt Dan Brown of India. Good luck to him. Keep this good work going and some day Dan Brown will be called Ashwin Sanghi of west. --By busybee

I read this book after reading all Ashwin sanghi's other books - chanakya chants, krishna key and the most latest private india. While the CC and KK are amazing works, I was little unhappy at poor and hasty works in the private india novel. Insatiable, I bought this book immly after finishing the private india. To my surprise, this book is simply outstanding. It gives a feel of reading a dan brown novel. Amazing work. No wonder, he is such a researcher that he waves so called fiction seamlessly with numerous references in real life and history back and forth some umpteenth times. Must read. --By Ganesh

It was a really well researched book. Makes me want to go read the references that he has quoted. Very scholarly. Enjoyed it. Although surprisingly he had a few things off on Hinduism. For instance the star of David is used as a symbol in Hinduism (as Sudharshana chakra). The author was only quoting a modified opened out version of the start of David (the Swasthik). Sorry ... just being picky because it is well written. A must read. --By Bhuvana Jaiganesh

From the Author:

The notion that Jesus may have indeed spawned a bloodline came to my attention in late 1999 when I read "Holy Blood Holy Grail" by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln. A few years later, I read Holger Kersten's "Jesus Lived in India" and was fascinated with the idea that Jesus could have been inspired by Buddhism and that he may have drawn much of his spiritual learning from India. The research was meticulous, and I was soon hooked! I followed it up by reading Margaret Starbird's "The Woman with the Alabaster Jar: Mary Magdalen and the Holy Grail" and was convinced that the persona of Mary Magdalene closely resembled the trinity of the Indian sacred feminine. The release of Dan Brown's "The Da Vinci Code" was what eventually prompted me to write "The Rozabal Line".

I realized that it was much more interesting to learn history through the format of a fiction thriller than to read a non-fiction hypothesis/theory about Jesus having lived in India. "The Rozabal Line" is a work of fiction and should be read as such. Religion, history and factual narrative have been liberally interspersed with the fictional narrative in order to give context and color to the plot.

Unlike most novels, wherever possible, notes have been provided at the end of the book to explain, justify, attribute or acknowledge although it is unnecessary to read these as part of the overall plot.

Book Description Westland Limited, New Delhi, India. Softcover. Condition: New. A complex yet interesting plot, a taste of many centuries and religions, a touch of terror and a mystery behind Jesus being alive is what goes into The Rozabal Line. Written by Ashwin Sanghi, a thriller fiction writer, this book showcases a cult of visionaries who believe that Jesus escaped crucifixion and lived somewhere in Kashmir, India. With a story well-knit, The Rozabal Line received its title from the Rozabal shrine in India.The story revolves primarily around an American priest, Father Vincent Morgan, who receives visions of Jesus crucifixion simultaneously getting dreams of the life he might have lived in the past. While this part of the story grows, a lady finds a box in the library in the place where Mahabharata books were supposed to be kept. And there follows a scream before the lady faints. What lies in the box is a mystery for the readers to discover. This kick-starts the chain of secrets and terror in the story that readers experience. While in one part of the world these events are taking place, on the other side evolve thirteen people forming a terror group named Lashkar-e-Talatashar. A prediction that a new messenger is coming, Egyptian myths, the Aztec prophecy and pieces of Greek mythology, all combine to make this book an intriguing connection between religions and cultures.
