A hard-boiled fast-paced narrative about sexual and political corruption in contemporary India. An erotic thriller set against the backdrop of caste conflicts, mafia intrigue and the amorality of a world driven purely by ambition and wealth. A racy and rewarding read.
Ajit Vajpayee is a drifter. A confused Marxist and a voyeur, his is a life of little action and desperate thoughts - about political ideology, violence and sex.
One empty afternoon in Lucknow, a mysterious man who knows his darkest secrets and shares his disillusionment with women offers him an opportunity for adventure: he may spy on a minister's wife, a woman, he is told, with a genius for deception. The unlikely mission takes Ajit to Bombay and Bihar, and he finds himself hopelessly caught up in a murky world of low politics, high crime and twisted carnality.
An erotic thriller set against the backdrop of caste conflicts, mafia intrigue and the amorality of a world driven purely by ambition and wealth. The Minister's Wife is a racy and rewarding read.
