About the book

A breath of Bombay hope, in the first glimpse of the sea, on Marine Drive, filled my heart, if not my head. I turned away from the red shadow. I stopped thinking of that pyramid of killers, and Sanjay's recklessness. I stopped thinking about my own part in the madness. And I rode, with my friends, into the end of everything.

The end of the eighties was the beginning of everything. The Berlin wall fell on an empire, and the Taliban took Afghanistan. Lin, on the run after escaping from prison in Australia, working as a passport forger for a Bombay mafia gang, finds himself standing on a tattered corner of a bloody carpet that would soon cover most of the world. But he can't leave the Island City: not without Karla.

Two years after the events in Shantaram, Bombay is a different world, playing by different rules. Lin's search for love and faith leads him through secret and violent intrigues to the dangerous truth. A love story told with hope and humor, a personal struggle for redemption, and a philosophical quest for the wisdom of our common humanity, The Mountain Shadow is a sublime novel, and an all-consuming, epic thriller.


Read Review   Want to write a review?

Shantaram with over 250,000 copies sold in India alone is the largest selling fiction title at a price point over Rs 400. The Mountain Shadow is probably the most eagerly awaited sequel, and ten years and another thousand pages later, readers will find the wait worthwhile. I have no doubt that this will become the must-read, must-buy novel of the year."

- Thomas Abraham, Managing Director, Hachette India

The Mountain Shadow has everything you could wish for from a great novel and everything we have come to expect from the genius behind Shantaram. It has the pace and action of a thriller, but it is also profound and moving. When I first published Shantaram I knew with absolute clarity that it would become a classic. Ten years on it has sold four millioncopies worldwide - and changed many lives along the way. The Mountain Shadow doesn't just continue the story - it tells us something new about love, life and faith. It's wonderful. I can't wait for people to read it.' -- Antonia Hodgson, Editor-in-Chief, Little Brown UK
