Minty Mehta (aka MM) likes to play dangerously - he is making a documentary about the Indian army's conflict with the Pakistanis, but drug-fuelled parachute jumping with Major Rodrigues is only part of the fun. Things are due to get serious at Bunker 13 - some very re-saleable military hardware and 100kg of the finest grade heroin lands in the Indian officers' possession. Using his cover as a magazine editor, MM orchestrates a deadly game of quadruple cross, involving the Indian Secret Service and the Army. But what he hasn't accounted for is the effect his affair with the boss's daughter will have on his complicated twilight life . . .

About the Author:

Co-founder and CEO of Tehelka.com, Aniruddha Bahal is a journalist who has worked for publications including India Today and Outlook in India. He is best-known for 'Operation Westend', an undercover documentary on corruption in defence procurement in India, and his investigations into match-fixing in international cricket. He lives in Noida, near New Delhi.

From Publishers Weekly:

Bahal, an investigative journalist from India, made headlines when he and his colleagues at Tehelka.com, an audacious Indian investigative news source, videotaped senior officials accepting bribes. To make the tapes, the reporters pretended to be rich businessmen. Bahal's first novel reads very much along these lines. His protagonist, MM, is a tough-as-nails ex-army officer turned investigative journalist with a penchant for risk, drugs and rough sex. Covering the army, MM learns that a small band of corrupt officers in Kashmir are engaged in smuggling drugs and weapons, and he soon becomes involved in an intricate web of guerrilla fighting, espionage, Russian mobsters and nuclear missiles. MM is a complex hero, a cynical and dissipated man who makes sentences such as "there's an art to drawing a gun" sound natural, but who is also principled. Some readers may grow weary of his relentless tough-guy posturing, but Bahal's use of the second person heightens suspense and adds psychological depth, and ample information about regional politics, warfare and journalism in India fills out the novel. The most serious problem is the awkward syntax, which considerably slows the pace ("You are in the mood for some luxury, and even though the hotel you have pitched camp in, bordering Dal Lake, isn't luxurious, it is better than the squatter mess settlements that the Western Command is most likely to put at your disposal"). Those who can get past the rough prose will find an offbeat, fun thriller.
