Temple of Hope, From the Best Mystery Novels Series - 5-star book reviews.

See what readers are saying about "Temple of Hope", one of the most successful fiction novels on Kickstarter:

"...Narendra Simone establishes himself as a top-flight mystery/thriller author with this excellent book. We can only be grateful that Sophie Kramer will be around in his future novels. Highly recommended on many levels."

"...I always enjoy a novel that mixes reality with fantasy...Narendra Simone has done a great job at mixing the 'thrilling spy novel' with the extremely sad commentary of sexual slavery that is becoming more and more common world wide." 

"...This story will keep you on the edge of the seat. In Sophie Kramer's debut novel, Mr. Simone not only deals with the child prostitution industry, but allows us to see that this is only an option for young Amy, who was kidnapped from the front porch of her piano teacher's home." 

"...The twists and turns keep right on happening in this well written thriller. Always happy to discover a new author that I can recommend! And Narendra Simone is definitely one of those!" 

"...This book is a great thriller but more than that. The descriptions of Delhi are amazing and took me right back to the sights, sounds and even the smells of India. Fast moving , intricate plot, super ending. It is fun to have an attractive female FBI agent and I look forward to her next adventure."


Narendra Simone

Born in India, educated in England, Narendra, a published author of 8 books, is a citizen of Canada and has lived in India, England, Canada, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the USA. He resides in Canada. He has traveled to more than eighty countries covering Western, Central & Eastern Europe, Central Asia, South-East Asia, the Far East, the Middle East, South America, North America and Africa. Narendra and the Hindu God, the Lord Krishna has something in common—they were both born in the town of Mathura (India), albeit about a few thousand years apart. He attended schools in India, England and Canada (Narendra, not the Lord Krishna) and studied at the Universities of Agra & IIT Roorkee (both in India), Nottingham (England) and Calgary (Canada). Witnessing six wars (4 in India and 2 in the Middle East) and travelling to over 80 countries has allowed him to gain an in-depth knowledge of diverse cultures. Inspired by true events his writing offers insight into cultural differences and subtle humour that coexist in the complex world. Although richly influenced by his foreign travels, Narendra finds his inspiration from his life experiences and through his novels invites you to join him on a journey of humour, mystery and international adventures.
