    This mesmerizing first novel tells the epic journey of Lin, an escaped convict who flees maximum security prison in Australia to disappear into the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The keys to unlock the mysteries that bind Lin are held by two people: his mentor Khader Khan, mafia godfather and criminal-philosopher; and the beautiful, elusive Karla, whose passions are driven by dangerous secrets.

    "It is a mistake to not downloading this audiobook"
    Overall

    I downloaded this book one week prior to my trip to India. I listened to it the entire way around the country. I finished it a few days prior to reaching Mumbai. I retraced his path through Mumbai and actually stayed at the India Hotel that he speaks of. His descriptions are so vivid that I felt like I had been to Mumbai before. I actually knocked on the door of the room that he stayed in and hung out with some German tourists.
    This is by far the best epic novel that I have ever read or listened to. There is such a cult following of this book. Anybody I meet who has read this novel says the same thing. "when it ended, I was sad that it was over." I later found out that this book is loosely based on a true story. Which makes it much more exciting. I only hope that I find another audiobook as good this one. This is a great audiobook for both men and women. I believe that you are making a mistake by not downloading it.
