How to Kidnap the Rich

Rahul Raina

A cynical, satirical view of how to get rich quick in India, while trying to avoid prison. Think of Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler on speed. Or that master of Tartan Noir, Christopher Brookmyre. There are villainous villains, devious plotters and Ramesh in the middle trying to work out what is going on and how to get out of it. Don't expect 'happily ever after' but the ending is believable.

'What are those?' I asked.

'Nothing, nothing.' he said.

'What are those?' I asked again
