Tone age tribesman; a Bollywood sex symbol; a mobile phone thief; and an ambitious politician Each is eually likely to have pulled the trigger Inspired by actual events Vikas Swarup's eagerly awaited second novel is both a riveting page turner and an insightful peek into the heart and soul of contemporary Indi.

summary Six Suspects

Six SuspectsThere's a caste system even in murderSeven years ago Vivek 'Vicky' Rai the playboy son of the Home Minister of Uttar Pradesh murdered Ruby Gill at a trendy restaurant in New Delhi simply because she refused to serve him a drink Now Vicky Rai is dead killed at his farmhouse at a party he had thrown to celebrate. I would like to applaud the publisher of this 400pp murder mystery for GIVING AWAY THE MURDERER ON THE BACK COVER OH MY GOD This is my pb edition the Goodreads blurb has been altered as well you might hope JFCAhem Other than that Nice idea patchy execution The India shown in a series of different lives of characters who turn out to intersect thing isn't super original but there's plenty of space for good treatment of it This wasn't really In part because the stories all seemed to be from different books There's a magical realist satire of a guy possessed by Gandhi a gritty gangster type tale a tragedy of dispossessed and discarded underclass a Bollywood actress in a Bollywood plot and a spectacularly poor effort at a caricature of the American Abroad It didn't add up It didn't really work for me as satire or as realism because I found the tone too uneven I'm here for tragicomedy but I think once it's caricature you do lose the emotional weight And it didn't really work as a murder mystery because DID I MENTION THE BACK COVER FFFFF
