Book Shop of India (www.bookshopofindia.com) has a nice review of The Sympathy Wave:
A racy political and investigative thriller. Matured writing. Unputdownable !! From military slush funds to shady land deals, from assassins and contract killings to loyal kingmakers, from cover ups to expose, from supercomputers snooping on the citizens to press conference on youtube and from Bogota to Bikaner, this novel has got everything and fills the void in quality Indian reading. The book is a racy political and investigative thriller. The plot and subplots are meticulously laid out by the author and aspects kept hidden from the reader only to be revealed at an appropriate time. Men of honour (officers from the military/RAW) are the sleuths who work like the CIA or Mossad. They work at great risk and little resources and fight the mighty machinery available to the megalomaniacs who have ridden a mock sympathy wave. The characters are strong. A Ludlum or Maclean was always missing in Indian writing. Ganapathy enters the arena with a bang to fill the void. I am eagerly awaiting his next novel.
Thank you, book reviewers at Book Shop of India!!
