  Thank you for the comments on faraway hardboiled.

  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.
