The Faceless Saldirgan
2006, Greenwich. The suicide of Ralph Findlay, owner of a leading property firm, devastates his son, Jack. But Jack's secret threatens to destroy him even more. Because someone knows it, and knows how to use it. A secret that threatens to destroy him and everyone he holds dear, forever.
A chase between Jack and The Saldirgan ensues: raising terrible suspicions, testing loyal friendships and putting lives at risk. Behind a complex and tantalising mystery of identities, is woven a fine maze of truth and fiction.
Is The Saldirgan at the center of this labyrinth?
Or is it the reader who is left trapped within?
This psychological thriller is quite manipulative, layered and a puzzle that lures you in and makes you helpless. The style is contemporary and pleasant.The Faceless Saldirgan could comfortably bring out the beauty in the characters and build the plot effectively.Sahil Loomba has a winner for his first book.

I have read Dan Brown. I have read Sidney Sheldon. It isn’t a good practice to compare authors, but Sahil Loomba comes close; really close.
A debut par excellence, ‘The Faceless Saldirgan’ deserves to be in your bookshelves. After all it is not always that we get a book that absorbs us into its pages, and we, in turn, feel like the characters, finding and hunting our way out to the dawn.

I liked that the characters in the novel stood out. Be it Jack, or Danielle, or the Saldirgan, or John Beckmann, they all add to the story. The enigma that is The Saldirgan impressed me in the way he plays it like a game of chess, planning the next move in advance and seeing the endgame.
