About this title


An instant best-seller when it was first published in 1940, Night in Bombay deftly traces the destinies of three individuals whose lives are inextricably linked together by chance: Bill Wainright, a rich American businessman; Buck Merrill, Bill's ailing friend who has devoted his life to philanthropy; and Carol Halma, a former beauty queen who was once married to Bill. A passionate relationship blossoms between Carol and Buck even as Bill finds himself falling in love with Carol once again. This love triangle unfolds against the shimmer and bustle of Bombay in the 1930s from the luxury and splendour of the Taj Mahal Hotel to the squalor and grime of the mill workers' quarters. Navigating their way amidst a host of colourful characters, the protagonists are pulled into a vortex of passion, greed, corruption and deception as the novel surges to a powerful climax.
