'Hilarious, rocking; I laughed out loud reading this!' - Karan Bajaj, bestselling author of Keep Off the Grass
When crime reporter Abir Ganguly is called out by the police to cover a routine arrest one night the last thing he expects is a shootout. But bullets are fired and a man is dead. Did the cops screw up? Abir's boss, not knowning that he was at the scene of the crime, wants him to file a story about the victim. For this he must meet Muneeza aka Sancho, the dead man's teenage daughter. Over the days an unlikely friendship forms between the glib wise-cracking 'armchair cynic' and the simple girl who 'travels on buses'. Can their fragile relationship survive the circumstances that brought them together? More importantly, can it survive the machinations of the jealous lizard that shares Abir's flat?
One of my favorite Indian books..
