A must-read that will keep you guessing...

The Run and Hide (The Brotherhood Chronicle Book 2) by Tejas Desai is a brilliant follow up to the first book in this series: The Brotherhood (The Brotherhood Chronicle Book 1). This is a wonderfully written and richly descriptive novel with brilliantly drawn characters and settings. The author weaves a well-crafted and compelling mystery that gives the reader a glimpse into the Asian criminal underworld. The story had every element a good story should h

Take Two

At the opening of the story, we find Niral a different man, Desai's protagonist in this dark underworld take that crosses cultures and nationalities where the sordid is normal. Against all hope of returning to his parents good upbringing, Niral must pretend many things before he can reveal himself as the person he is. The book is graphically written. When Niral is in Thailand,you are there with him. A very fresh and entertaining read.

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

Following book one, The Brotherhood, we now are into book two. I struggled with this book and needed to read it twice. Not because it was a bad book, but it just had a lot to it to absorb.

Here are the things I’d like note from my reading experience:

The two books do belong together, in that, each builds or reflects back upon the writing of the other. Without one, the next book wouldn’t make sense or be as appreciative in its existe

Tejas Desai's sophomore installation builds upon the rich tapestry of character and setting he wove in The Brotherhood in masterful fashion.

The Run and Hide chronicles multiple countries (Thailand, India, Australia, and USA) and is vivid, but most importantly, authentic in the portrayal of each. It is clear to the reader that the author has spent significant time in each of the settings and has come to understand the nuances in scenery and populace. This attention to nuance in conjunction with i

I’m fortunate to have Tejas Desai as a friend and colleague. I also was one of the beta readers for The Run and Hide. Set a few years after The Brotherhood the main character works for a crime organization because of debt. This takes him to the wild streets of Thailand, where he encounters plenty of vice, and commits crimes himself.

Tejas is great at setting. The first book takes place in Queens and feels authentic. I have never been to the Thailand beaches or even read much about them, but the s

What makes The Run and Hide shine is its ability to reflect the transnational with its three locations, Thailand, Australia, and India, where Niral is dragged into work with the Dragon gang. My favorite parts were focused in India and depicted how the shadow of the Brotherhood still looms upon Niral even with the transition of a new leader. The unfolding and evolution of the main character is what is most compelling, seeing all that he has been through since the fallout of the first novel. Thoug ...more

In 'Run and Hide' the new thriller by Tejas Desai, we have a new look at the underbelly of the world. The book shows us life in India, Thailand, and NYC. It has a large scope and cast of characters from both sides of the law. The story arc centers around Niral who ultimately wants to do the right thing and isn't sure what that is. There is one more book in this series and I look forward to seeing how this concludes. ...more

This intricate story creates a web of plots amongst characters. In this second book, family drama is escalated prolonging suspense. Author depicts multiple countries vividly throughout, and allows readers to a feel a part of their cultures. I look forward to conclusion of this trilogy.
