About the Author

The author was born and grew up in Bombay (now Mumbai), a city he knows intimately. A city which can fascinate and frustrate in the same breath. After graduating from St Xavier s College (in Bombay), he tried his hand at various jobs till he found his stride in the make-believe PR profession. He is a self-confessed buff of detective fiction. He has lived and worked in Pune, and now has settled in Goa with his wife and three dogs, acquiring a taste for feni and fish-curry rice.
