BOOK REVIEW: Don’t Tell The Governor
Title: Don’t tell the Governor
Author: Ravi Subramanian
Ravi Subramanian, a banker by profession has come up with another new fascinating book, “Don’t Tell The Governor”. Ravi has written many award-winning books and this one seems to match his class. A kind of work, which can be the script of exciting Bollywood thriller.
The story begins at four cardinal points, which, in the beginning, seems to very difficult to predict that it will ever merge to one point. But that’s what Ravi is known for.
A whistle-blower at the Law firm in Panama releases the papers that makes authenticity of many billion dollar firms questionable, across the globe.

A car, with the trunk full of cash skids off the road and gets tossed into the valley at the India-Nepal border.
Ravi reveals the dirt of bureaucracy, lobby fixing and politics through thinly lined fiction which will make you think about the past events that had happened for real in the country.
Ravi has also outlined the role of RBI in the finance sector to which, a common man is mostly unaware of. The recent drastic and historic events in the history of politics are the main lines of the plot in the book. Providing not extensive but accurate bits of the required knowledge about the field of finance, Ravi takes the readers through the whirlpool of an unpredictable sequence of events.
As the story progresses, the dots start getting connected and leaving the readers totally stunned in the last part of it.
My Opinion: The work is very finely crafted with the real incidents of the country and at some point, it will make readers to google and match the storyline with real events that had happened in past.
The book is totally catchy that it won’t let you put down the book as you progress. At some points, I felt that I have predicted the story but Ravi burst the balloon of my predictions easily.
If you are searching for a good thriller by an Indian author, your choice ends right here with this book.
