About the Book :
‘All these bangers have gone and simply put us in trouble.’
I blinked. ‘Bangers?’

I remained silent. I hoped he wouldn1t ask me about my work!’

About the Author :
P.G. Bhaskar lives in Dubai with his wife and son. When asked what he does for a living, he somewhat sheepishly replies ‘banking’. He loves cricket and is often found on his sofa staring intently at the television set mouthing profanities when things don’t go according to his plan. When not watching TV, writing or banking, he puts together quiz questions in the hope of getting people to attend his quizzes.
