As to Bombay, a further very long detective story is out by
Vikram Chardra. As thick as a summer blockpuster or War &
Peace, this really does take you to Bombay, but is a heavy
plod with many Indian words which fail to get noticed even on
a computer dictionary.
************* Thank you for the comments on faraway
Here recently I read several sections of a book titled
Shantaram, and it seemed fairly hardboiled and interesting.
It came out maybe 8 months ago. I can't remember the author
and I'm not positive about the spelling of the title. It is
mostly set in the criminal underworld of Bombay.
