Ken Spillman, Bestselling Australian author - kenspillman@gmail.com

Battalions of Deva fans know his talent for incendiary action. SALIM MUST DIE is a killer thriller, a must read. From the man who claims to write on ‘literary Viagra’, this is a straight up winner.

LASHKAR was pacy, tight very well knit and pleasantly vindicating. Mukul deftly blends his knowledge of military operations with his knack of thriller writing.

Kulpreet Yadav - kulpreetyadav@gmail.com

Mukul Deva’s writings are a sure recipe to entertain. SALIM MUST DIE catapulted me into a virtual world of action where I smelt gunpowder, felt the shocks of mortar and grenade explosions, and survived labyrinthine espionage.

Deva has a wonderful touch with mood, with setting and especially with characters.

Eika Chaturvedi Banerjee - eikabanerjee@gmail.com

Both LASHKAR and SALIM MUST DIE are milestones in Indian writing 'coming of age'. For a land that has been so strife-torn, and terrorism plagued, especially in the context of recent events, Mukul Deva's books become topical, close to the hearts of millions of Indians, and offer hope and redemption.

The sharp zigzags of the plot kept us on edge and made for a very racy pace - each of my family members, finished it at one reading! I couldn't help comparing the parallel build-ups at different locations, to John Le Carre's 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'. Thanks for the thrill and we look forward to more!

 Aniruddho Basu - abasu@airtelmail.in

Irresistible read. Mukul has the knack of communicating the terrorism issue with a great degree of relevance and still make it fictional. Complimenting the style is his knowledge of army, intelligence & terrorists.

Rakesh Dalwani
rdalwani@rediffmail.com
Ananth Doraswamy – ananth.doraswamy@citi.com

Gripping and well narrated action - I read the book in one go. Not only does Mukul take you through the terrorists process of recruiting, brain washing and training of innocent people effortlessly but also develops characters well, making the feel-good story credible and engaging.

I put off everything once I started reading Mukul Deva's series and then I told all my friends. Clancy, sure, but I'm thinking the next Ken Follett. This writer has just started a major blockbuster career.

Sourabh Sengupta - sengupta_sourabh@yahoo.com

LASHKAR can be well defined as a "Readers Combat Exercise" because every page is so captivating and visually active that the reader finds himself on the edge. The story is so captivating that I read it in one go. All in all, an excellent piece of art.

Anunay Shrivastava - anunay.shrivastava@gmail.com

Am thrilled to see this kind of a writing from a fellow Indian. Such wonderful detail orientation along with a superlative understanding of the macro environment. I read that people are comparing your writing to the Ludlum’s and Clancy's of the world, but in my eyes you are way beyond them… somewhere close to Mathew Riley and Allen Folsom... Cheers and keep ‘em coming!
