A sleepy community on the Indian coast, Goa is a paradise for the international hippie brigade, drawn by the golden beaches and endless supply of cheap dope. Lately, though, professionals have moved in on the drug trade, and even the sweetest smoke can't cover the stink of corruption that's pouring from the highest levels of local government. George Sansi, the half-Indian/half-English cop from Bombay, thinks he's seen about the worst the world can offer. But when he gets a call to help clean up Goa, he finds himself unprepared for the grimly dark side of paradise.

From the Publisher:

I have been fascinated with all things Indian in the time of the Raj, but had not found a "modern India" that held me enthralled until Paul Mann's books came into my life. All the novels are wonderful, but my favorite is THE GANJA COAST. In this novel, lawyer George Sansi and his girlfriend Annie, pressured by a man to whom George owes his allegiance, journey to Goa, a coastal community inhabited by Western hippies and native drug dealers. Posing as vacationers, Annie (an American news journalist) and George (a Indian lawyer) attempt to find evidence of the corruption in the political machine behind the group that plans to develop sleepy paradise of Goa and turn it into a money-making enterprise. When the very young child of a couple of the local residents is found strangled, the investigation turns dangerous and the story becomes hypnotic. After reading this book, Goa went straight to the top (along with the Vale of Kashmir) of my wish list of places to visit.

Tanya Thompson, Executive Assistant

From the Inside Flap:

s in Bombay, when George Sansi gets a bizarre visit from his former boss, the powerful joint commissioner of crime branch, Narendra Jamal. With the look of a desperate man, Jamal confides that the government's plans for Goa -- the so-called Ganja Coast, a decadent beach community where aging American hippies and drug dealers mingle -- will create an opportunity for Indian-style corruption that staggers even the cynical Sansi. The man who stands to steal the most is Jamal's rival, the Minister for Economic Development, Rajiv Banerjee. Jamal wants Sansi to travel to Goa and dig up the evidence that will bring Banerjee down.
Most of the burned out inhabitants of Goa seem blissfully unaware of the coming changes. But evil soon becomes manifest, shattering the hippies' view of Goa as an innocent paradise: the morning after the latest beach party, the strangled body of a child is found floating in the waves.
With his American lover, newspaper reporter Annie Gennaro, Sansi sets out for a luxuriou
