Description

"Dashing DSP Bikram Chatterjee of the West Bengal Police hates his boss, the boorish SP Toofan Kumar. And he knows his boss especially resents his affair with screen goddess Shona Chowdhury—it’s a rank thing. Bikram is keenly aware of the two distinct worlds he inhabits: the posh circles of Toofan and Shona—a world he instinctively distrusts—and the grimy world of crime with which he is familiar, even comfortable. Then Robi Bose, former darling of Calcutta’s Page 3, is found dead with bloody froth on his lips and Bikram is given the task of investigating this high-profile death in double-quick time. This, in addition to all his other duties—cultivating informers, breaking up drug-smuggling rackets on the Indo–Bangladesh border and providing security for occasionally violent football matches. And as the investigation draws him in, Bikram finds his two worlds colliding in unexpected ways. Gripping, gritty and one hundred per cent honest, F.I.R. inaugurates the DSP Bikram series—the first desi police procedural.

A must read book

FIR is a good book.It's cover gives us the impression that the hero, DSP Chatterjee is a "Chulbul Pandey" type of cop, promising us a lot of dhamaka. However this isn't so. This book is rooted in absolute reality. It shows us a glimpse of the unseen side of Kolkata. This book is on par with any other detective novels. It is a must read book.

Superb story for debutant

This is a really good book. Shows reality. It's not conventional crime novels but is a novel telling you about the procedure, the method in which the police work. Really unpredictable and overall super for a debutant. My rating: 5 stars.

An awesome book by Monabi Mitra

Wanted to let everyone know about a great new book called F.I.R by Monabi Mitra (Penguin) Shows how the police function in trying to solve a murder. Set in Calcutta, feeling nostalgic when reading all about Ballygunge and Tollygunge. Also, the cop- hero Bikram Chatterjee is great. Must read.
