Three informers. Murky bylanes of the underworld that hold the key to deadly terror plots. The chase for India's most wanted terrorist. The lives of three of Mumbai police's best informers collide in the shady bylanes of the underworld. It's a bad bad world. A world of crime, sex, drugs, murder and betrayal. He who lies lives to see the light of another day. A day replete with even greater risks. From shady underworld dealings to switching gang loyalties, the men graduate to selling information on terrorism. Then begins the chase...to catch India's most wanted terrorist: Riyaz Bhatkal, the man with the ominous track record of masterminding seven blasts in three years. The search takes them to the most unassuming yet dangerous terror hubs across India. With trust in short supply, time ticking away and the sword of Damocles over their heads, the men can only hope that they are not on a wild goose chase.
In this anthology you can look forward to some talk of sex,a little of scotch and much scholarship.the collection attempts to mirror the author's concerns and passions-his love of nature,his anguish over the situation in Punjab,his interest in religions of the world and his scholarly research of the one into which he was born,Sikhism.
The highlight of this book,however,is the expansive,autobiographical opening piece written in Khushwant's characteristically candid style and perhaps the most complete self-portrait he has yet painted.
