There comes a day in every boy's life when he needs to sit down and decide what to do with the rest of it. But our layabout hero, Samay, slept through it, as he did most days growing up. Waking up aged twenty-nine, he finds that he barely has any money left in the bank and the only job anyone is willing to give him is as a debt collector for small businesses.To top it all, he has had no luck with his college flame, Amrita. They were close friends once but are not even in touch any more. His less-than-ordinary life takes a mad turn when he is mistaken by mob boss Pande for a hitman and given Rs 75 lakh as payment. Samay wants to take the money and flee the city, but he discovers that Amrita, now a journalist, is next on the hit list...The Debt Collector's Due is a wild ride through the drama of college heartbreak and a terrifying murder in south Mumbai's Parsi colony to the sweaty alleys of Crawford Market and the mist-filled valley of Panchgani. This is a story about shifting fortunes and high stakes, a breathless read from the first page to the very last word.

The book has everything a good book should. Action, suspense, comedy, and a bit of romance, coupled with a lovely sense of humour and brilliant use of language. The book is very fun and easy to read, and is immensely enjoyable right from page 1.
This book is a real page turner and it's easy to get carried away by the sinuous plot, mellifluous language & humorously detailed characterization. So don't be surprised if at 6pm you're still in you pajamas, gripping that coffee mug from breakfast, telling yourself you'll only read one more chapter.
