    Navroze Contractor

    Zaidi has done a remarkable job in tracing the history of the Bombay underworld. But, I am sorry to say that like all other Indian biography/history books it is incomplete and so saying half truths. The author traces the life of Dawood's father with meticulous detail that would give him five stars but not of others! Especially the Hindu Dons and their honchos are left rather softly. Also names, where are the names of the film stars, politicians and police that attended Dawood's famous parties...

    An experience to remember

    I have been an avid reader and my mind goes tick-tock every time I see books on the shelf. My hands are always itching to grab those books and read at leisure, be it Khushwant Singh's conversational style or narrative style of William Darlymple or even the realistic snapshot of events by Zaidi amongst others. And then the thought crossed my mind, can I take on the role of a critic for myself and post my version or my take on specific books that I have read over a period of time. And I enthusi...

    Go for it!

    Just finished reading this book! Splits open the dark underbelly of organized crime.. Implicit use of real names makes it even more interesting and credit to the writer for having taken names! Now waiting to see how the directors of "Shootout at Wadala" fare! They have indeed got a really really good source material to start with!

    Interesting and Fast Paced

    Sixty of the organised crime syndicate summarized in one book.

    The entire book is based on facts and when you are attempting such a work of non-fiction, it takes a lot of courage and good writing skills to keep the reader interested.
    And trust me you won't feel bored even for a single page.
    Its thrilling and its fast paced.

    What I liked the most is how the author has described, most of the things with minutest of details and given his views on the incidences.

    If you are a fan of gangster f...

    SENDS A CHILL DOWN YOUR SPINE KIND OF A BOOK

    After reading his previous two books BLACK FRIDAY AND MAFIA QUEENS OF MUMBAI,there a huge expectations from S.Hussain Zaidi's third much talked about book and i was really fascinated by this book. The book largely indicates the rags to riches story of Dawood ibrahim, one of the most notorious and dreaded gangster in the Mumbai underworld but also shows the growth of the crime in the city. Hussain zaidi's books are always found to be of beat and yet very commercializing and always manages to g...

    Outstanding work

    Zaidi is back with his superb research and great storytelling. He has succeeded in chronicling the history of the Mumbai underworld since the early 50s. The book is full of nail-biting incidences and anecdotes. The author has refrained from including inconsequential information as well. Surely, the first book to refer to, if you want to know about organised crime in Mumbai. Though, at times, you may feel the underworld is glorified, it doesn't affect the flow and experience of the book.

    Best book on Mumbai's underworld

    The amount of research and fact finding and to amass this huge amount of information and transform this gripping and frightening tale is testament to how much hard work the author has taken. I was actually speechless in reading what went in the underworld universe. A must must read for every person. Absolute exquisite and to the point description that one can actually visualize the incidents described. Kudos to S Hussain Zaidi

    Masterpiece!

    Extremely gripping. Must-read for anyone even remotely interested in Mumbai mafia.

    You actually feel bad for Dawood at the part when he realises he has to leave Mumbai for the last time. This is an insight into one of the most gifted and misused minds of our times.

    Gripping.

    Good read. For someone like Mr Zaidi, who has done his homework, before penning all them down.

    For someone who have heard all the big names and how mumbai underworld has evolved. Reading is close to visualing the events and how they unfolded.
