Reviews

A gripping tangle of politics, murder, bribery and betrayal * Observer *
A young writer to watch -- V. S. Naipaul
Naipaul's praise is rare enough to be notable; and Taseer lives up to it. Among the sharpest and best-written fictions about contemporary India * Independent *
A coolly accomplished, pulsating account of modern-day Delhi * Guardian *
Scathingly comic, disquieting, ironical. Vicious fun * Spectator *
Part thriller, part investigation of male friendship, part exploration of the tension between traditional values and modern liberalism in Indian society. Assured, engaging, highly readable * Sunday Times *
A subtle, cleverly observed comedy of manners that turns into an altogether edgier and more sinister narrative * Literary Review *
A brooding tale . . . desire, greed and murder all feature * Daily Mail *
