Description

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.



A cardboard box is found on a shelf in 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 Lashkar-a-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 an approaching conjunction of the stars and nods to himself in grim realization of the end of the world. In Tibet, a group of Buddhist monk’s searches for a reincarnation, much in the way their ancestors searched Judea for the Son of God. In strife-torn Kashmir, a tomb called Rozabal holds the key to a riddle that arises in Jerusalem and gets answered at Vaishno Devi.

An American priest has disturbing visions of people familiar to him, except that they seem located in other ages. Induced into past-life regression, he goes to India to piece together the violent images. Shadowing his every move is the Crux Decussata Permuta, a clandestine society, which would rather wipe out creation than allow an ancient secret to be disclosed.

In The Rozabal Line, a thriller swirling between continents and centuries, Ashwin Sanghi traces a pattern that curls backwards to the violent birth of religion itself.
