About the Book
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.

This book is just such an enjoyable read! The plot was fine but the phrasing was phenomenal. The main reason I liked the book so much was because I could hardly wait till I stumble upon the next simile that elicited at least a smile if not a full two note chuckle (which startled my wife a few times). This book has everything for you, crime, romance, drama all that stuff, but at its core it's a great light-hearted read. I am recommending this book to everyone I meet.
