What We're Reading Now "An exotic, epic adventure you can completely lose yourself in. Not a memoir but a roman a clef, the story has Roberts, an escaped convict from Australia, sneaking into India and making a life there among the Bombay street people and mafia. (In real life he was captured 10 years later and wrote the novel while in prison.) An amazing story of personal despair and redemption and an un-put-down-able read." -- Ellen Sullivan, Corporate Office, Birmingham, AL Based directly upon the experiences of its author, this is the story of a man who escapes from prison in Australia to arrive in Bombay where he works in a first-aid station and smuggles drugs and guns.
