"Book collecting is an obsession, an occupation, a disease, an addiction, a fascination, an absurdity, a fate. It is not a hobby. Those who do it must do it. ~ Novelist Jeanette Winterson

The Hunt For Kohinoor

Kohinoor - A famed precious gem

A Mythological tale claims that it was worn by Lord Krishna and it was stole from Him when He was asleep.
Another story claims that it was found in a river bed in 3200 B.C
The first reliable evidence is from Barber, The Mughal Emperor, who named it as a part of the treasure won bu Alauddin in the 14th century.
The Mughal acquired it in the year 1526.

Right from the start this gem was claimed and hunted by India, US,Afghanistan and Taliban.

Now in the present times, the same countries are on the look out for the Kohinoor but this time, its not the gem that they are after, but it is a set of critical documents that decides the fate of the country and its people....

This is the outline of Manreet Sodhi Someshwar's second book - The Hunt For Kohinoor . This book is the second of the Thriller series featuring Mehrunisa Khosa.

A very thrilling book and I loved it. Read the review here..

Happy browsing...
