"MANN'S INDIA GRABS YOU BY THE THROAT. . . .Sansi, an ex-cop turned lawyer, is complex and compelling." --The Philadelphia Inquirer Even Goa, a sleepy beach community along India's "Ganja" coast, cannot escape the creeping reach of corruption. As voracious developers gear up to turn Goa into a moneymaking machine, lawyer George Sansi is pressured to dig up evidence on the man who stands to steal the most: the Minister for Economic Development, Rajiv Banerjee. Most of the burned-out inhabitants of Goa seem blissfully unaware of the coming changes--until the strangled body of a child is found floating in the waves, shattering even the aging Western hippies' view of Goa as an innocent paradise. With his American lover, newspaper reporter Annie Ginnaro, Sansi sets out for a luxurious Goan resort, where he and Annie will pretend to enjoy a much needed rest. But relaxing is the last thing they will do, as they hack their way through a tangled jungle of Western dropouts, drugs, money, and murder that has overgrown around the last refuge of pleasure in India.... "[MANN] SETS ASTOUNDINGLY VIVID SCENES OF A DECADENT CITY in the throes of life, the better to draw sharp, grim portraits of characters flirting with bizarre forms of death." --The New York Times Book Review "CHILLING. . .TRULY SHOCKING. . .An intriguing look at another culture--one where the best and the worst of East and West meet." --San Francisco Examiner
