With the melodic cadence of South Asian-accented English, Sagar Arya narrates this mystical novel about a rare book dealer embarking on a journey that involves multiple continents. Deen Datta follows the threads of an ancient Bengali legend, barely remembered from his childhood, from New York to India, Venice, and the site of an ancient shrine in a remote place called Gun Island. Arya provides colorful inflections for Deen and his various Asian-American friends who provide critical keys to unlocking the mystery he is pursuing. The descriptions of global environmental crisis and immigration issues, which are sometimes dry and lengthy, are narrated diligently. Ayra is most successful at recounting Deen's astonishing discoveries and the plight of his friends. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2019]
